Possible suspect ID'ed

http://www.nypost.com/p/news/national/a ... ewyorkpost

Investigators have a suspect — a Saudi Arabian national — in the horrific Boston Marathon bombings, The Post has learned.

Law enforcement sources said the 20-year-old suspect was under guard at an undisclosed Boston hospital.

It was not immediately clear why the man was hospitalized and whether he was injured in the attack or in his apprehension.

The man was caught less than two hours after the 2:50 p.m. bombing on the finish line of the race, in the heart of Boston.

In addition, Boston police have has surveillance video of someone bringing multiple backpacks to blast site, according to CBS News.

Rep. Steve Stockman ‏@ReElectStockman 1m
Boston Police have clarified that no suspect has been identified and no one is in custody. Any motive is at this point pure speculation.

Like I said, please just wait until actual details come in instead of posting stuff from news organ-I-zations who would rather be first than correct.

Unfortunately, that is every news source.

I don't mind people posting stuff. It is up to the reader to determine what is legit or not. That is how the media is today.
