Authorities have clear video images of two separate suspects in the Boston Marathon bombings carrying black bags at each explosion site and are planning to release the images today in an appeal for the public's help in identifying the men, the Boston Globe reports. The two suspects were seen separately on videotape — one at each of the two bombing sites, which are located about a block apart.
It was unclear why authorities did not publicize images of the unidentified suspects yesterday. President Obama is visiting Boston today, and the timing of a law enforcement briefing remained unclear. Yesterday, the disclosure that a bomber was believed to have been seen on the Lord and Taylor surveillance video led to widespread media reports that a suspect was in custody, was under arrest and was heading to U.S. District Court for an initial appearance. The Marathon explosions killed three people and injured more than 176, many of whom were grievously maimed.
