The investigation of the two bombings that took place at the finish line of the Boston Marathon was turned over to the FBI Monday night. The agency is now requesting video and pictures from those on the scene, even taking to Reddit and social media as potential avenues to gather information.
“No piece of information or detail is too small,” the FBI said in a news conference.
The FBI said it is seeking information, visual images or details regarding the explosions along the marathon route and elsewhere.
Please get the word out that anyone who has original videos, pictures or images taken during the marathon – please forward to the FBI Boston.
Please do not edit the original file. We are using the original date time stamps of the images. Any image taken along the entire race would be appreciated, but especially near the finish line at any time today.
Maybe crowd sourcing will help catch the suspects.
FBI set up a phone line for members of the public to call with information about the explosions. The call-in number is 1-800-CALL-FBI (1-800-225-5324), prompt #3.
During a press conference in Boston Tuesday morning, officials emphasized several times the importance of sending in photos and videos taken at the race as they try to piece together the events. An official said it will take time for them to sift through the high volume of evidence they are receiving.
