PHOTO: Boston Suspect Places Backpack Bomb Next to 8-Year-Old Boy Who Was Killed in Blast

The death of 8-year-old Martin Richard in Monday’s Boston Marathon bombing was one of the most heartbreaking results of the attack that shocked the nation. Now, heartbreak turns to rage.

Megyn Kelly of Fox News said Thursday on Twitter that her colleague Rick Leventhal reported that the FBI had a photo of one of the suspects — the one in the white cap, identified by the FBI as “Suspect 2″ — placing his deadly backpack bomb right next to the young boy. This photo, reportedly discovered online by members of the Reddit community, appears to capture that scene:


 Three days after Monday’s bomb attacks that killed three people and injured more than 170 in Boston, the FBI held a press conference Thursday at which they released photos of two suspects identified from surveillance video of the scene at the Boston Marathon.


The FBI and the Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) are seeking tips from the public about these two suspects. Persons having information should contact the FBI at 1-800-CALL-FBI (1-800-225-5324) or a special online tip site set up by the agency. FBI Special Agent in Charge Richard DesLauriers said that the two suspects should be considered “armed and extremely dangerous,” and warned the public: “Do not take any action on your own.” Report them to police or the FBI.

UPDATE: The suspects have now reportedly been identified, named, and may be the subjects of a shootout and pursuit near Watertown, Massachusetts.

      Keep trying. They are far from being atheists like the communists.

        Is this implying that atheists are worst that those who bomb people? What the? There are thousands of peaceful atheists, crazy lady.

    Scary to think that bombs that fit inside of a basic backpack can kill and injury so many.

      Why do you think that everyone has been saying to stay vigilant and question everything. That includes someone leaving a back pack on the ground.

    Yes... very scary and we were worried about guns being in the wrong hands? Are we going to do a background check on people buying pressure cookers???

    So the two girls in front are transparent...because that is the only way you could see a bag behind them. It doesn't even look like the bag he was carrying either. Calling B.S. on this photo, if this is the best evidence, it's pretty weak.

      You're an idiot. The 13yr old girls are obviously standing sideways with pencil thin legs. It doesn't take much to realize that the picture is not fabricated. If you watch the video of them walking by on the sidewalk, you'll also notice that is definitely the same bag that he was carrying. It's a good thing they didn't have you working the case!

          Tell that to the man who lost his legs. The man who IDENTIFIED the bomber who he saw place the back pack right by him. This conspiracy theory crap is getting old.........

    This picture shows no evidence. Show me the footage of them placing the back packs down or show me the footage of them walking without the back packs. No Instead I only see the same 2 suspects walking with the back packs in the same area over and over.

    The boy didn't die in the initial blast, him and his family ran from the first blast directly into the second where he died...

    What happened to due process? a guilty conviction? We can't just go around killing people with a fair trial!

    One thing I have notice is that in some pictures, there is a number "7" on the white cap and a number "3" in other pictures. Can someone explain this?

    Does anyone know what happened to the three young girls on the railing?

  12. April 22, 2013  9:17 pm by on the fence Reply

    the bag beside the girls is black with a bit of white at the top the bag that suspect 2 is carrying is mostly beige with a touch of white and black, suspect 1's bag is all black with different shades of black and brown. You can see this clearly from the video of them walking through the crowd(it shows a back and a front view of the two walking) so the bag in this picture is not one of the ones that they were carrying but this bag could also belong to one of the girls and he places his bag behind where we can't see.
