Boston Marathon Suspect At Large: No Suspect in Custody


No suspect has been arrested in relation to the Boston Marathon bombings today which killed several and wounded dozens, despite reports to the contrary by the media at large and most egregriously, the New York Post.

Previously today, the Post reported that a "Saudi national" was in police custody after being injured by the explosion. Those reports appear to be inaccurate.

From Talking Points Memo:

A spokesperson for the Boston Police Department said no suspects have been taken into custody yet after the bombing at the Boston Marathon.

"At this time, we haven't been notified of any arrests or anyone apprehended," the spokesperson said.

The New York Post reported that a "Saudi national who suffered shrapnel wounds in today's blast" has been identified as "a suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing." The Boston PD spokesperson did not confirm that report. 

"Honestly, I don't know where they're getting their information from, but it didn't come from us," said the spokesperson.

The Post report was attributed to "a law enforcement source." According to the Post, the "suspect" is "currently being guarded in a Boston hospital."
