Sorry for the inaccurate story! It was widely circulated last night, but it was wrong. My apologies.
Once their pictures were circulated nationally it didn’t take long to identify them. More here. Sunil Tripathi (on left) has been missing from Brown University for the last month and had been presumed dead. More on Sunil here. His family has been missing him, not having any idea what he was doing. Family video here. One of the bombers was apparently involved in a police shooting last night at MIT. A terrible story just gets worse. After a shoot out with police one of the bomber suspects was captured while the other is on the run. That story here and here.
