One of the world’s largest and most active imageboard websites, 4chan, has taken on the crowd sourced task of finding the Boston Marathan bombers and it’s massive community has used photographic evidence and footage to already identify potential suspects. By scanning hundreds of still images and video evidence…some released by the FBI, the members of 4chan have come up with these.
And those are just a few. Plenty more HERE.
The third image of the guy in the white cap next to the guy with the blue jacket is attracting plenty of attention due to the fact that they were standing almost precisely at the blast epicentre. The guy with the white cap can been seen with a backpack (also looks like it could contain the pressure cooker IED) on in some images and without it on in other photos. Lots of speculation also around the two military looking guys both of whom had backpacks on similar to the one found after the blast.
“On 4chan, an image-driven message board, users zeroed in on a surveillance image showing a man near the marathon’s finish line wearing black pants, black shirt and white hat and carrying a black backpack similar to the one recovered near the site of one of the blasts.
In subsequent aerial images, the man is seen without the backpack.” [Yahoo]
Not bad for armchair CSI wannabe’s hey.
