Breaking: CNN says feds believe they’ve identified a suspect in the Boston bombing; Update: Feds want to talk to “a number of people”; Update: No arrests; Update: Black jacket, gray hooded sweatshirt, white cap

posted at 1:48 pm on April 17, 2013 by Allahpundit

If you believe John King, there’s surveillance video from Lord & Taylor department store of someone carrying and “perhaps” dropping a black bag near the site of the second bombing. What that means, I take it, is that they don’t have video of the drop itself but still frames of someone with, and then without, a backpack within a few seconds.

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.

No images yet, but apparently CNN reported on air that the suspect has a dark complexion. This is … interesting too:

There’s a briefing today at 5 p.m. ET. I don’t know if “identified” means they already have a name or if they’re going purely by description, in which case they’ll have to release the surveillance videos and risk “inflammation.” Sources tell the Boston Globe that they’re “very close” in the investigation, which I guess means that if they don’t have the name yet, they think they will soon.

Like Ace, I’m curious to see if the surveillance images match with any of the people identified in the 4Chan crowdsourcing of marathon Flickr photos. I skimmed through them this morning and nothing looked odd to me except the two guys with black backpacks and beige pants and boots standing next to each other. But that makes no sense: If you’re operating in concert, why make it easier for the feds to spot you by wearing similar clothes? Anyway, stand by for updates.

Update: I guess they have a name.

CNN’s now reporting that the arrest’s been made. Stay tuned.

Update: I find it morbidly strange that the bomber(s) didn’t have plans for a second attack immediately, i.e. within hours, after the marathon bombing. They know they’re probably going to get caught, and given all the cameras at the finish line, it’s probably going to be soon. If they’re willing to kill on Monday, why not yesterday or today before they’re pinched?

Update Hmmmmm.

Authorities investigating the Boston Marathon bombing said Wednesday they have developed “solid leads” and identified “a number of people” they want to talk to after viewing hundreds of hours of video, with one or two standing out.

Senior officials told NBC News that they were not prepared to characterize those individuals as suspects.

“We are zeroing in on some people,” an official said.

Investigators analyzing photos and video have found people carrying black backpacks and duffel bags and setting them down in the area where the bombs went off, officials said.

Sounds like maybe they’ve got one suspect on the L&T video but think he may have had a partner.

Update: NBC says there’s no arrest yet but the AP says the suspect’s already on his way to the courthouse.

Update: The plot thickens:

Update: Total chaos:

Update: CBS has the first details of the surveillance vid, or so says their source:

At the site of what became the second explosion on Monday, surveillance video captured a man wearing a black jacket and gray hooded sweatshirt placing a backpack on the ground while talking on a cell phone, sources told Orr.

While the man was on the phone, the first explosion went off.

CBS News senior correspondent John Miller reports that authorities settled on one individual late Tuesday and are having discussions over whether to go public with identifying the person.

Update: Two tweets from the Boston Globe, posted within 11 minutes of each other, presented without further comment:

Update: A little more detail from a CBS affiliate:

Orr said authorities have video of a man in a black jacket on a cell phone, wearing a gray hoodie and a white baseball cap backwards placing a black bag at the second bomb site outside of the Forum restaurant on Boylston Street and then leaving the area before that explosion.

Orr said the man was on the phone at the second bomb site when the first bomb exploded.

Orr said the FBI looked at time man was on his cell phone and then went back and scanned all the calls made in the area to track who they wanted to talk to.

Are they suggesting that he detonated the bomb remotely by phone or that he placed a call to someone, or somewhere, that threw up a red flag?

Update: An FBI spokesman says nope, no arrests have been made. Who told CNN and the AP and the Boston Globe otherwise?

Update: Another strike against CNN: According to CBS, the suspect doesn’t have a “dark complexion.”

Update: I skimmed the 4Chan gallery again but didn’t see anyone matching the CBS description. (There’s a guy in a white hat and black coat/pullover, but no hoodie.) The only one that looks close-ish is about two-thirds of the way down the page, with a bunch of flags in the foreground, of a man crouched against a wall with a black backpack. But the cap looks gray, not white, and I don’t see a hood, just a jacket with a big collar. I don’t think the suspect’s in any of those images.

Update: Indeed.

Update: The “official” who told the AP earlier that a suspect is in custody is standing by that despite the FBI’s denial. Hmmm.

Wouldn’t that be something if this were one of the usual sources of terror after the MSM has invested so heavily in radical Christian extremists miffed about their taxes?

I just hope the FBI didn’t merely pick somebody out of the crowd and arrest them to give the appearance of having been on top of this. Richard Jewell was essentially scapegoated when the FBI couldn’t identify Eric Rudolph. Let’s hope this isn’t the same situation.

Yeppers! Kind of like that whole Aryan Nation/Christian Identity thingie…

“In Colorado, a top prison official was gunned down in his home. In Texas, two prosecutors were killed, a third has now pulled out of a case against the Aryan Brotherhood of Texas for, quote, ‘security reasons.’ So, we have people using guns to settle their disputes with public officials, using their Second Amendment remedies. Don’t like the sound of this? Think it’s an overstatement? Well, there come times when overstatement becomes the truth out there. We’ve got a Texas senator, Ted Cruz, who won’t let the Senate hold a democratic vote on gun safety. So, no democracy. We’ve got people out there using guns to get even with public officials, intimidating those they don’t kill. This is where we are with guns in this country. Second Amendment remedies being executed on public officials. Refusal by some elected officials [Senator Cruz] to let us have a democratic vote on what to do about it. And this is where we live in April of 2013.”
