FBI Releases New Photos of Marathon Bombing Suspects

The new pictures show clear faces of the suspected killers.

The FBI released new photos of the Boston Marathon bomber suspects in the early hours of Friday morning. The 2 a.m. posting included direct shots of the two suspects' faces.

The wee-hours release comes on the heels of Thursday afternoon's press conference, when 11 images and a video segment of the suspects were released.

I am seeing video of someone in handcuffs being taken away. But the news is saying suspect 1 was killed and 2 is at large????

They're telling everyone to stay home but I'm thinking ...he might be inclined to break into a house and take someone hostage as a last ditch effort. If was in that area I'd have all eyes looking out the window.

What makes people evil like this? So much hate...it's a shame, isn't it?
Philip Ricciardelli April 19, 2013 at 10:32 AM
Black cap dead; it's official. White cap on the run in Watertown. Also what do you mean by Large?

What nice guys these are! So the first one is dead after killing an MIT cop! I am sorry about the cop ,but I am glad about the first suspect being dead! I can't imagine that the first was innocent after killing a cop!Now I feel bad for the people of watertown!Boy do I hope they capture the second suspect. If he is killed that will be good as well. Both of them remind me of a saying:Those who live by the sword will die by it.Those two really live for violence. I hope that the other one is eliminated soon.

Anti American Chechnyan Terrorists hiding/Living within the sympathetic bosum of the Republic of Cambridge Mass.,..Why am I not surprised. The question now,- How many more??
r April 19, 2013 at 12:06 PM
perhaps they were brainwashed by the government like the fake sandy hook shooting kid was.... another thing on their agenda to remove our guns and leave us defenseless.
Beth Baise April 19, 2013 at 12:37 PM
There are no conspiracy theories going on within our government, these are just simply sick individuals. Have some faith in this country....before you become old, cynical, and hopeless.
sandra rivera April 19, 2013 at 12:50 PM
your need to find sick individuals .this is why i dont understand why they did'nt proof for the gun laws this is going to always happen i live in ny i be so scare to go outside
Alice Walker April 19, 2013 at 12:58 PM
These guys are American by culture....they were raised in America. We can't blame this on some other country. We need to find out why so many young men in America are ending up with absolutely no empathy or respect for life.
LisaJ April 19, 2013 at 02:04 PM
Alice- They are Muslim extremists, and aren't Americans by culture.
Rich April 19, 2013 at 02:06 PM
hope they would get him alive, to find out more info, others involved etc..but i doubt it, we all know how these things usually end...
Bob April 19, 2013 at 02:12 PM
Alice, they were NOT "Americanized". These are two animals that want to kill people for the fun of it. Also there is no longer an American culture. We have lost our melting pot culture over the last 30 years or so. It use to be immigrants would come and integrate and become Americans. Now they demand we honor their heritage and culture and we encourage them to retain that. We are no longer a melting pot.

Better to Capture # 2 alive for Info...dead gives us no answer's

and he's a Brown University student (Sunny), not MIT.

The whole town of Boston is in lock-down. People are told to stay indoors. Now, if this dirtbag comes to your door in Boston, and you are not allowed to defend yourself with a gun...."YOU"RE DEAD"!

It's all very sad. One uncle said of the brothers, "They were very misguided. They had to be radicalized by someone. They are both losers." The other said the surviving nephew is an angel. One uncle is bitterly disappointed and the other is in denial.

Look up Takiyya. Arabic word for disguise. The Quran says one is allowed to use Takiyya to lie, deceive and disguise anything and everything you do in the process of converting nonbelievers to Islam. These guys were practicing this for years I bet.
Aron Levy April 19, 2013 at 06:43 PM
So what's your solution, Jack? And how is that any different from Christian proselytizers threatening fire and brimstone to those who don't convert to THEIR faith? Also, have you ever READ a Qu'ran?
Gretchen Robinson April 19, 2013 at 07:16 PM
that is unproven and defamatory at this point. Don't leap to conclusions.
Louisa Hufstader (Editor) April 19, 2013 at 07:19 PM
His name's not Sunny.
Jack April 19, 2013 at 07:52 PM
I have read the Quran Aron and studied Arabic, terrorism in and outside this country. Seen interrogations abroad as well. Just passing along the concept to others. I do see it as different. I'm fine with Islam. Not a bad religion at all. Many Muslim friends world wide but call me crazy I just object to the whole convert or die approach. All religions try to recruit, convert and spread the gospel. Fine. Just don't try to kill me. Defending them Aron?
PREDATOR April 19, 2013 at 07:58 PM
Jack, don't waste your time....he only knows about things he has learned from the tv or the inside of his mom's basement....and dungeon and dragons games....has his own society u know. LOL.
Aron Levy April 19, 2013 at 08:41 PM
Well then you're further along than most other people on this site. As I'm sure you know, there are over 1.6 billion Muslims on this planet. I would say that the number who want you to either convert or die (or even practice taqiyya) represent no more than a few thousand. The term 'statistically insignificant' really isn't adequate for that situation.
Bloodyrue Andrue April 19, 2013 at 08:47 PM
God bless you utter idiots for at all thinking that bombing innocent Americans who have come together for their health, perspective, and other ideals along with all the foreign members of the Boston Marathon to promote whatever evil concept you have. You are the evil that will be exposed to gnashing of teeth. You are absolutely stupid to be arrogant enough to think that the American public would not track you down and serve whatever human justice you hath asked for by your deeds. An 8 yo boy begging for peace was eliminated by your efforts. How do you think he felt about what you did? Your futures are so defined. It is sad knowing that you acted in such a pointless effort to maim people for your own personal interests. I am opposed to Capital punishment but not at all sad knowing your eventual outcome of this atrocity, that you alone created to get, as you asked for by those with the power and legal will to stop you in your tracks!
Swede April 19, 2013 at 11:01 PM
Just wanted to send you all some love and support from Sweden. We are thinking about you! Anna, Stockholm, Sweden
