FBI releases video images of two Boston Marathon bombing suspects

The Federal Bureau of Investigation today released surveillance images of two suspects connected to the Boston Marathon bombings.

FBI Special Agent Richard DesLaurien said two men are suspected of the crime.

They appear to be associated, he said, and are referred to as Suspect 1 and Suspect 2.

Suspect 1 is wearing a dark hat, suspect two is wearing a white hat. Number two is suspected of planting the devices, he said, although the FBI does not have video of the bomb being planted.

“We strongly encourage those who were at The Forum restaurant that have not contacted us yet to do so. Suspects one and two seem to be walking together ion Boylston Street in the direction of the finish line… as you can see the quality of the photos is quite good,” DesLaurien said.

“Further on FBI.gov we have photos of the suspects… for clarity these images should be the only ones shown to the public,” he  said.

“For more than 100 years the FBI has relied on the public to be its eyes and ears… Somebody out there knows these individuals as friends, neighbors.. any bit of info no matter how small… it is extremely important to contact us with any information,” he said. “We consider them to be armed and extremely dangerous.”

No one should approach them,  and no one should attempt to apprehend them except law enforcement, he said.

The FBI established a website: Bostonmarathontips.fbi.gov, which crashed shortly after the bureau’s televised announcement.

“The horror of that day will remain with us forever,” DesLaurien said.
