Domestic terrorism is usually a single nut with a single bomb. There was some coordination with this, but it's still not particularly well done.

Anyone got any good wild speculation? Home-grown Islamic? Anti-government types? Yankees fans?

4chan crowdsourcing reveals three potential suspects. Basically, using photo evidence they built a timeline that shows two guys who appear to have misplaced their bags before the bombing.

Are they right? Hopefully we'll know at the 5PM press conference.

FBI releases photos of suspect bombers.

Shooting breaks out at MIT. One is dead, other on the run. One cop dead. Unknown how confrontation at MIT started and ended up with one MBTA officer dead and one suspect dead.

They've fought with police, throwing small bombs and shooting at cops.

Major outlets now reporting this as official.

Apparently they robbed at 7-11 store, shot a cop who responded to the robbery, they fled in a stolen Mercedes, then proceeded to get into a firefight in which they hurled bombs at the police.

Wow. Who the hell are these guys??

CNN keeps reporting that the suspects are brothers. Still no names, though.

31 Name: Unverified Source : 2013-04-19 11:50 ID:jLcZygUP

The Atlantic reporting that a woman living at a residence shared by the brothers (family name apparently Suspects, given names 1 & 2 (STILL NO NAMES GIVEN, that's aggravating)) is under arrest.

32 Name: Unverified Source : 2013-04-19 11:51 ID:jLcZygUP

Oh wait, same blog reports: one of their names is Tamerlan Tsarnaev. Possibly a rumor. Are they Chechens??
