Boston Police, FBI Ask Public To Keep Sending Photos, Videos

Posted: Updated:

The FBI and Boston police provide an update Tuesday morning on their investigation into yesterday's deadly bombing at the Boston Marathon.

At least three were killed in the blasts, and 140 hurt were hurt.

Special Agent Richard Deslauriers, of the FBI's Boston Field Office, had this to say about the investigation: "Our mission is clear: To bring to justice those responsible for the marathon bombing. The American public wants answers, the citizens of the city of Boston and the commonwealth of Massachusetts want and deserve answers. This group of dedicated men and women standing before you today pledge to do everything possible to get those answers. This remains a very active investigation."

The FBI says there are "no known additional threats." The joint terrorism task force leading the investigation is continuing to interview various witnesses and process the crime scene, which could take some time.

But officials say they do want to hear from the public, describing the tips that have already come in as being "voluminous."

"Assistance from the public remains critical in establishing a timeline of events, which leads to swift conclusions through due diligence and strong investigative activity," Deslauriers said. "We strongly encourage that assistance to continue."

Jean Marquez, the FBI's Acting Special Agent in Charge at the Boston Field Division, added that they have explosive specialists from the ATF, bomb techs, K-9s and approximately 30 forensic specialists enroute or on scene.

"To dispel any rumors, there were rumors floating around that there were seven devices, at one point. That is not true," Marquez said. "I think that happened as a result of some suspect packages that were disrupted. But we only have two devices, that we're aware of, and both of those devices were the ones that involved in the damage and involved in the explosive incident."

"At this time, we are looking for the public's cooperation. We're looking if there's any video, any photographic evidence, if you can please contact the FBI's hotline or the city's hotline, we would like to review any kind of media that you have out there pertaining – that might give us additional investigative leads."

Marquez went on to ask for the public's patience as they continue to investigate at the scene.

There's one thing the officials say for certain.

Deslauriers said, "I would like to start this morning by thanking the first responders from Boston EMS and Boston Fire Department, and the volunteer physicians, nurses and medical staff from the community who volunteered at the marathon. Their services and heroic actions saved lives yesterday afternoon."
