Theyre asking for the publics help in identifying the two men who were seen wearing ball caps and wearing knapsacks and walking through the marathon crowd on Boylston Street toward the finish line.
For more than 100 years, the FBI has relied on the public to be its eyes and ears, special agent Richard DesLauriers said at a news conference on Thursday afternoon in Boston. We know the public will play a critical role in identifying and locating these individuals.
Somebody out there knows these individuals as friends, neighbours, co-workers or family members, DesLauriers said. Though it may be difficult, the nation is counting on those with information to come forward and provide it to us.
But he cautioned the public not to approach the suspects, saying theyre considered armed and extremely dangerous.
This is a good thing that people might be able to find more images of these 2 in their own photos from that day. Knowing what to look for will hopefully jog some memories of people who were there that may have seen additional details.
The FBI is the one who called them white. In the video, the guy in the white hat looks unmistakably white. I don't think the FBI are going to call them white when they're not just to be politically correct.
Holy cow! Can you imagine going through your pictures and realizing you've got a shot of this guy? He's just strolling along---getting ready to unleash abject horror and pain on countless lives. Grrr, makes me so mad I could spit.
