A Boston University student was confirmed dead today as the third fatal victim from the terrorist bombing at the Boston marathon Monday afternoon. The two other were identified as a boy and a young woman.
FBI’s investigator made a plea for information from the witnesses and said ‘The range of suspects and motives remains wide open’ and asked anyone who may have heard someone speak about the marathon or April 15 to call them.
Investigators still have no firm suspects from the attacks that killed three and injured more than 170 people.
Massachusetts governor Deval Patrick said: “This is a painful and tragic lesson, but we will learn from this as well”, and confirmed the visit of President Barack Obama on Thursday morning, at Cathedral of the Holy Cross in South Boston.
Investigators believe the bombs were shrapnel-studded pressure cookers, hidden in backpacks and detonated by timers.
Superintendent of the Massachusetts State Police Timothy Alben is asking people to submit their photographs and videos that were made close to the finish line. “You might not think it’s significant, but it might have some value to this investigation.” He claimed.
President Obama affirmed “We will find whoever harmed our citizens, and we will bring them to justice,” he vowed. “We also know this: The American people refuse to be terrorized.”
The fatal victims were an 8 year-old boy, Martin Richard, who was waiting at the finish, Krystle Campbell, 29, of Medford, and the third one was a Boston University student who was not identified at this hour.
As of today there were 70 people hospitalized being treated at six Boston hospitals. The youngest victim is a two year-old bot with a head injury.
Here’s a video that went viral and shows how the two explosions happened:
