BREAKING NEWS: The FBI has identified two suspects in Monday's the Boston Marathon bombing, releasing photos and video showing them and asking the public to help locate them.
The suspects, one of whom wore a a dark ballcap and the other who wore backwards white ballcap,appear to be in their twenties and were captured on footage near where one of two explosions killed three and injured 176. In video that appears to be from a surveillance camera and which was shown by the FBI, both suspects are walking west on Boylston Street, near the finish line and where the explosions occurred.
"Someobody out there knows them as friends, coworkers. Although it may be difficult, we are counting on those [people] to come forward." - Rick Deslauriers, FBI
"We consider them to be extremely dangerous and armed," said FBI Special Agent Rick DesLauriers. "With the media's help, we know the public will create a critical role in locating these suspects

They look Amish to me
They are both wearing dress shoes. Strange for the demographic.
Where is the footage of them dropping the bag?
The other series of photos posted here on FR are much more convincing - but they were definitely of Middle Eastern types. So it would seem that the FBI wants to focus on guys - at least one of which looks just like any other American. And these guys dont look particularly suspecious like the ones in the other photos. obama just doesnt want any Muslims to be the perps...
These aren’t “persons of interest” anymore. Now they’re “armed and dangerous.”
I want to know the same thing.
The cover-up begins.
One does but look at the hands of one. Probably Near Eastern types.
Is this the video from Lord and Taylor’s cameras??
What cover up???
Sorry, folks, I’m suspicious.
Too much deceit with this administration.
Those cats look very ... Er ... ethnic to me.
One is a golf cap and I believe the other is a polo cap according to an earlier thread.
The older one is harder to see, with his sunglasses and cap pulled down low. But the more I look at them, the more I'm thinking Albanian is a possibility. Could also be Kosovar (same as Albanian) or Macedonian/Greek.
how can i post a pic on free republic? wanted to make sure no one forgot about this pic (seen on infowars) with a person of interest squatting down and putting a black backpack down on the ground.
The conspiracy theories begin.
VIdeos and photos at the FBI web site:
1- the second kid looks like he’s 17...
2- neither of those backpacks matches the beige backpack (2nd bomb) that was seen in front of the barriers..
For those of us that do not wish to click on a link, it sure would be nice if someone took the time to post the images in this thread.
Productive video to release as well as this one would be of the man dropping the backpack in front of the restaurant. Someone who was there might recall details by being reminded through the video, they might realize that they had just taken a picture and might have a better image of the man, etc.
I do not understand the mentality of law enforcement that thinks that facts should not be given to the public. If you have video of him dropping the backpack, then share it.
I agree. We are to ignore any other evidence except what we are told to concentrate on by the FBI.
Maybe to you... but not to me .. one maybe and you can’t see him very well.
Conspiracy theories continue, you mean. You should read some of the Glenn Beck threads.
Fine....but these guys are on the move. You may have seen them pass you.
Notice they're not in close proximity to anyone until they get to the drop point...The tree. How did they enter that packed area?
Infowars? Freeper, please.
What’s the chances they did the exact same route a day or so before?
Tha wasn’t the bomb...
All I could make out was their stupid hats.
The caps and their dress in general looks like generic foreign student-maybe from the near east or parts of eastern Europe.
Just my feelings but something doesn't smell right.
Suspet #2 is wearing a Bridgestone Golf cap...
I hate to sound conspiratorial, but every single pic/video I’ve seen of these two guys has them with their backpacks on. If they dropped their packs, then were are the images of them sans backpacks?
If - a big if - others took still shots that happened to include these guys - perhaps. Hope I'm wrong, and hope this gets cracked wide open and they are caught - complete with enough evidence to convict.
But, at this point however, it looks highly unlikely.
That FBI link has them. Different resolutions, etc
A Reddit user just said he/she works at a motel 6 in Massachusetts and saw these two guys check-in yesterday.
None of it passes the smell test. First off the quality sucks. We’ve seen numerous other pics that are far better. It seems the faces are intentionally blurry in order to not be able to identify nationality. If you’re asking for help to find suspects wouldn’t you want the best and clearest pics possible? Also, the backpacks don’t look heavy or bulgy enough to be carrying a pressure cooker full of metal. Further, if there is video or pics of one of them placing a backpack near where one of the bombs went off, why aren’t they showing that?
Another thought I had is wouldn’t a metal container full of metal objects make noise while being carried about? Ya know, rattle around some? If someone walked by me carrying something like that, I’d notice and remember it. Maybe that’s a shot in the dark but still...
I thought the one looked like an ancient coin: I’m going with Greek-ish/Cypriot, but they do NOT look like Bible-thumping, Constitution-backing Americans to me.
Did they say excuse me to anyone?? Apologize for bumping into anyone?? I'd like to see one of those.
That's a Starbucks right there. Who would notice if they went in there 3 days in a row especially as the visitors start to arrive.
I have to think there were two dudes before them on the same path to more or less clear a path. What if they were blocked?? How did they get through that crowd drives me nuts.
Hats might be holding down an earpiece.
Does the FBI claim that these two suspects dropped their packs at the two blast sites? Has any video or photo evidence of this been made public?
With the confusion and crowd, I’ll bet no one was paying any attention to anything outside of their own concerns-and that same confusion may also mean they have gotten out of the country by now-I hope not-they need to be made an example of...
Now look at this FaceBook pic of Saudi suspect. Saudi in center (short guy). Look at guy second from left. Look at tall guy in back. notice hair and beards...
Suspect #1 looks like he may be Middle Eastern. Chance suspect #2 could be Middle Eastern or of some foreign ethnicity. Photos of suspect #1 unfortunately don’t show much. With the shades and cap and by looking down and away from where cameras happened to be it seems he has concealed a lot of his face. From the pictures and videos they have released it seems that they have a lot more appearance details on suspect #2.
Dosn’t make much sense that they checked IN yesterday.
