BOSTON – According to sources reporting to CNN the “Boston Bomber” has been identified after reviewing local network news footage and department store closed circuit cameras. CNN reported:
“Investigators believe they have identified a suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings, a source who has been briefed on the investigation told CNN’s John King exclusively. The breakthrough came from analysis of video from a department store near the site of the second explosion. Video from a Boston television station also contributed to the progress, said the source, who declined to be more specific but called it a significant development.”
The Boston Globe Reports:
Investigators are “very close” in the investigation, said the official, who declined to be named.
That official said authorities may publicize their finding as early as this afternoon. The same official also said a surveillance camera at Lord & Taylor, located directly across the street, has provided clear video of the area, though it was unclear whether the image of the suspect was taken from that camera.”
