JakeWalters sent me a few picks of a guy that seems to be holding a bag similiar to the one one of the bombs was in. Then DotheMMAth posted one one facebook. I figured I'd share

There's a ton of suspicious activity being outlined on some of the social websites. We need to keep that in mind though...there is too much suspicious/coincidental activity for them all to be the culprits. Sometimes your mind fills in the blanks once you see a similarity to evidence, such as a common black backpack. I hope all of the information gets investigated, but it's important to not pronounce these individuals as criminals just yet. Information travels fast in today's internet culture and innocent people could have their lives ruined if people jump to conclusions too quickly.

With that said, what I'm most curious to see is what turns up with (1) the gentleman in blue holding the backpack, as there is quite the resemblance to the one used in the crime. (2) there's a couple of guys not mentioned here, but are wearing similar outfits, have black backpacks, some sort of earpiece, and were hanging out in at least one of the bomb locations. (3) also, there's a picture of a guy with a black backpack, that also happens to be holding something with an odd shape...an odd shape that happens to resemble the pictures of pressure cooker bombs being portrayed in the media...I'll admit this one is a bit of a stretch, but it piqued my interest nonetheless.

The wife and I were originally scheduled to do a half marathon this past weekend, but ended up backing out a couple of weeks ago, due to schedule conflicts. Obviously not even in the same state, but did get a couple of phone calls from people who thought of us first when they saw it on the news. I told the wife that catching these guys could prove to be a community effort, considering all of the personal media being recorded at events like this...which can be a good thing. I would just hate to see a coincidence turn into some rogue vigilante making the situation worse before all of the facts come out.

I really hope that this is THE guy or atleast one of them. It would be a shame for the FBI to pin it on somebody as a patsy.


that isnt out of the realm of possibility so dont flame me, our govt is faaaaaar from honest

I guess they found footage of someone putting a bag down then running away from surveillance footage across the street.

Before I start to demonize the arrested man, let's hope he's the right one.

Yeah, they are saying someone is in custody, but has not been arrested. So, I guess that just means a person of interest.

The guy with the bag looked sketchy as fuck. Who holds a backpack like that???
I also read that they have someone in custody and the FBI will hold a press conference around 4.

This was just posted on one of our local Pittsburgh news FB pages.

A box with the label "pressure cooker" was delivered to the Cardello Bldg on the North Side, and it had a Massachusetts return address. That caused understandable alarm. By the time the bomb squad arrived, it was determined it was an actual pressure cooker, and a worker who had just moved to that building claimed the package.

I also heard a senator recived a letter with ricin?

WW would be proud.

This was the first thing I thought of when I heard about the ricin letters.
