Suspected Backpacks found at the finish line for the next Boston Marathon Race.
I was waiting for the green line at Hynes convention center Boston after attending a one year Memorial service held to commemorate the victims of Boston Marathon Bombings, when a Train Driver announced that the train wouldn’t stop at Copley station, which was directed by the FBI because two backpacks were found at the finish line. It was devastating and nerve racking for everyone. I quickly left the train station and walked up to Boylston street to witness, take pictures and find out what is really happening so I could write about it. There were over 100 cops at various locations, street was blocked and the squad team came to investigate , Fire trucks /fighters were all over the place, people stranded, upset and wondering who would want to hurt people again especially on the one year remembrance of the bombings by two Chechen brothers. I stood close to newscasters from various newspapers and Tv stations listening and wondering what the FBI were doing. At exactly 8:43pm, There was a loud noise that sounded just like a bomb which made everyone run for safety. I later found out that the bomb squad detonated two of the backpacks found at the finish line. Sources have identified the suspect as 25-year-old Kayvon Edson a fashion designer from New York. He is arrested and charged with disorderly conduct, disturbing the peace, and possession of a hoax device.
The Fbi investigated and found out that earlier the same day, Edson changed his Facebook cover image to a picture of Boston Marathon bombings suspect Dzokhar Tsarnaev which read: 'Had a blast at the marathon!!!' Edson also tagged the image with 'Tamerlan Tsarnaev and wrote Dzokhar Tsarnaev is innocent'.
