Bomb Squad Detonates Bags Left Near Boston Marathon Finish Line
April 15, 2014

 
WBZ-TV photographers on scene say they saw a person with the backpack screaming “Boston Strong” before police cleared everyone from the area.
Witnesses say the person was barefoot, wearing a long black veil and was acting strange. Boston Police say one man has been taken into custody.
The Bomb Squad inspected the bag left behind the photo bridge and detonated it just before 9:00 p.m. The second bag was detonated about 40 minutes later.

Person in custody after suspicious bags found at marathon finish line
April 15, 2014

A person is in custody tonight after police report suspicious bags were found at the finish line of the Boston Marathon on Boylston Street.

An eye-witness told the Herald tonight a man dressed all in black and wearing a black veil walked down the middle of Boylston Street, with a backpack on his back, chanting "Boston strong, Boston strong."

"He was weird looking," said Matthew VanWinkle. "He was wearing a black veil, a black hat, and no shoes."

The bomb squad is now on the scene and police have pushed everyone back. A bomb squad member yelled "fire in the hole" as they did a detonation. There is no word yet if the backpack had explosives or not, but the backpacks have been "neutralized."

That section of Boylston near Dartmouth Street is closed down. A robot was used to examine one of the bags.

The Boston Fire Department has also sent an engine and ladder company to the scene as a precaution. The MBTA also tweeted out that Green Line trains are bypassing the Copley stop.

Sadly, the alert hit around the same time as the Norden brothers, J.P. and Paul, were completing their team's Hopkinton-to-Boston relay to raise funds for prosthetics. Both brothers lost a leg in last year's attacks at the finish line. Now the double-decker bus they rode in is parked near the area.

 
One bag can be seen just under the photo bridge about 30 feet after the historic finish line of the Boston Marathon. The stands are already set up in preparation for Monday's 118th running of the race

He should spend a long stretch in prison to enable him to contemplate his art, and should pay for the cost of the bomb squad and other expenses incurred for his art show.  JMHO

Tsarnaev Can View Victim Autopsy Photos: Judge
April 16, 2014

A federal judge ruled Wednesday that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the surviving suspect in the bomb attack on the Boston Marathon, will be allowed to see autopsy photos of the victims.

The judge, George O’Toole of U.S. District Court in Boston, rejected a claim by the government that Tsarnaev should not see the photos because it would disturb the families of the victims.

The ruling came a year and a day after two bomb blasts killed three people and injured 264 near the marathon finish line. A police officer was killed in the ensuing manhunt.

Under court rules, lawyers for Tsarnaev are allowed to see the photos as they prepare a defense. The goverment sought a special restriction — that Tsarnaev himself not be allowed to see them unless the government offered them as evidence at trial.

The government argued in court papers that allowing Tsarnaev to see all the photos would subject marathon victims to “needless harm and suffering.”

The defense lawyers said they had never heard of such a restriction, and that decisions about what Tsarnaev can and can’t see are best left to his lawyers.

Tsarnaev was not in court for the hearing.

The judge also rejected a defense request to dismiss some of the criminal counts against Tsarnaev because they were duplicative and might prejudice the jury against him.


Tsarnaev, 20, goes on trial in November and could face the death penalty if convicted. He has pleaded not guilty to 30 criminal counts.
 

The next hearing for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is June 18.

Judge Weighs Looser Restrictions on Alleged Boston Bomber
April 16, 2014


BOSTON--A federal judge indicated Wednesday he may loosen oversight of prison meetings between accused Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and his older sisters, which the defense said are key to understanding family dynamics.

Prosecutors allege Mr. Tsarnaev, now 20, planted two bombs at the marathon finish line a year ago with his older brother Tamerlan Tsarnaev, who died days later in a firefight with police. The surviving brother, who has pleaded not guilty to all charges, has been held in a federal prison hospital outside Boston under tight restrictions, including a Federal Bureau of Investigation agent present when he has met with his two sisters.

"If the government's indictment is true, this is about family," said David Bruck, one of Mr. Tsarnaev's attorneys, speaking during a federal court hearing. "It is our job to plumb that," with a defense investigator on hand to observe visits, he added.

The defense, which has sought to loosen restrictions on Mr. Tsarnaev's confinement, has suggested he was influenced by his domineering, older brother.

Mr. Bruck argued that monitoring by an FBI agent connected to the prosecution could raise "ammunition" for a potential penalty phase in the case. Mr. Tsarnaev could face the death penalty if convicted.

Prosecutors have disagreed with loosening the restrictions on the family visits, for security reasons, while claiming the defense is responding to an occasion in which the suspect made a statement to his own detriment--which they haven't spelled out--overheard by an FBI agent. Mr. Bruck denied his client made such a statement.

Judge George A. O'Toole didn't rule on the matter Wednesday, but said "I don't think the safety, security issue looms very large." He suggested potentially lifting the monitoring or having federal agents on hand who aren't part of the prosecution team. He gave prosecutors more time to weigh in before he issues a final order on the matter.
 
A still-tense atmosphere was on display Tuesday night, when Boston police performed a controlled detonation on two unattended bags at the already set-up finish line for this year's marathon, which will take place Monday. One bag was allegedly dropped there by a local man who was arrested on site and arraigned Wednesday, while the other was left by a television news crew when the area was evacuated.

The local man, Kevin Edson, was arrested on several charges, including possession of a hoax device and making a false bomb threat, according to the local district attorney's office. He is being held on $100,000 cash bail and was sent to a state hospital for a mental-health evaluation, the office said. A not guilty plea was entered on his behalf.

Image Shows Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s Last Message Before Arrest
April 17, 2014


A new image shows the bullet-riddled anti-American rant allegedly scrawled by suspected Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev on the inside wall of a boat as he hid from a police manhunt last year.

“The U.S. government is killing our innocent civilians, but most of you already know that… I can’t stand to see such [bullet hole] go unpunished,” says the handwriting captured in the image obtained by ABC News from a law enforcement official in Massachusetts. “We Muslims are one body. You kill one of us, you hurt [bullet hole] us all.”

Two state and two federal law enforcement officials confirmed the authenticity of the image.

Along with bullet holes that interrupt Tsarnaev’s message, the image shows drips of red liquid on the wall, which could be paint or, officials said, blood. Dzhokhar had been injured in a firefight with police hours before – the same firefight that took the life of his older brother and alleged co-conspirator Tamerlan Tsarnaev.

ABC News has previously reported Tsarnaev wrote an anti-American message on the boat, called the Slip Away II, in which he hid during the massive manhunt last April. Law enforcement sources previously said that the message also included the phrase “F*** America”. That portion of the message was not included in the image obtained by ABC News. This week law enforcement sources said Dzhokhar also lamented elsewhere in the note that his brother was able to meet Allah first.

Memorial held for policeman slain after Boston Marathon bombing
April 18, 2014

Reuters) - More than 1,600 people gathered at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology on Friday for a memorial service for a popular campus police officer shot to death a year ago in the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombing.

MIT police officer Sean Collier, 27, was shot multiple times in his car in an apparent confrontation with the bombing suspects days after the blast, which left three people dead and more than 260 injured when two homemade bombs exploded near the race's finish line. Collier was killed in an unsuccessful attempt to steal his gun, authorities said.

Police officers, government officials, students and faculty joined members of Collier's family at the outdoor service under a tent a short distance from where Collier was killed, a place marked by a temporary memorial planted with flowers.
 
Ruiz unveiled plans for a permanent memorial modeled after an open hand, with five radial walls, expected to be completed next year. Cambridge Mayor David Maher said during the service that a nearby street corner would be named "Sean Collier Square."
