In a press conference Thursday afternoon, the FBI officially released photos of two suspects in the Boston Bombings on Monday.

 

“Suspect 1 is wearing a dark hat. Suspect 2 is wearing a white hat. Suspect 2 set down a backpack at the site of the second explosion just in front of the forum restaurant.” (Via NBC)

 

Both are considered to be armed and dangerous and FBI special agent in charge, Richard DesLauriers, says the two suspects appear to be associated. (Via CBS)

 

In this surveillance video now posted on the FBI’s website, you can see the suspects walking down the sidewalk during the marathon, wearing backpacks, shortly before the explosions.

 

DesLauriers warns people not to approach the suspects and instead contact law enforcement. He went on to say identifying those responsible for the attack is the FBI’s utmost priority.

 

He also stressed that those pictures and video are the only ones the public should use to identify the suspects.

 

“Somebody out there knows these individuals as friends, neighbors, co-workers or family members of the suspects. Though it may be difficult the nation is counting on those with information to come forward.” (Via CNN)

 

This is the first briefing in two days, after a planned press conference on Wednesday never materialized. MSNBC says the FBI may have waited to give their agents more time in reviewing the material.

 

“Agents in the field would always like a little more time to work on their own to find these people, because once you make it public it’s a two edge sword. Yes, you get a million eyes and ears to help you find these people. On the other hand you generate a lot of false tips.”

 

It’s the latest in an effort to find who’s responsible for the two blasts on Monday that killed three people and injured more than 170. Among those dead include an 8-year-old boy, 29-year-old woman and a Boston University graduate student. (Via ABC, BU Today)

 

The bombs themselves are reported to have been put in 1.6 gallon pressure cookers, one filled with metal and ball bearings, the other filled with nails. (Via BBC)

 

The FBI’s announcement comes the same day President Obama and city leaders came together for a prayer service honoring the victims. Anyone with information on the suspects is asked to contact investigators at 1-800-call-FBI. All calls are confidential.
