Boston Globe ties Watertown shootout suspects to Boston Marathon bombing; WHDH: 1 suspect in custody reportedly dead

Twitchy has been giving you live, breaking coverage overnight of the MIT shooting and Watertown, MA shootout, explosions, and ongoing chase. One suspect is in custody. Another remains at large. The Boston Globe apparently has a source that has definitely tied tonight’s suspects to the Boston Marathon bombing.

Grain of salt. For what it’s worth. We’ll continue to monitor and update as news develops.

On a related note, Boston station WHDH reports that one of the suspects is dead. Grain of salt. FWIW:

Update: Police now identifying second suspect at large as Boston Marathon bombing suspect “in the white hat” depicted in photos released to the public.

Update: The suspects have been named — Mike Mulugeta and Sunil Tripathi.

      With a bullet dipped in pig blood. According to the “religion of peace”, that will ensure that he doesn’t get his alleged 72 virgins.

    I have a feeling this is gonna end up being Wednesday afternoon all over again but I really hope that I’m wrong.

  • Jack Deth

    How long will the live suspect will be in custody before Holder’s Justice Department laterals him over to Kerry’s State Department and he’s flown back to Saudi?

  • Garth Haycock

    What will happen if these suspects turn out to be Boston’s version of Richard Jewell?

    • Bemani Dog

      They weren’t “heroes”, and Richard Jewell wasn’t shot. Someone else already played that part.

    • Jillane Kent

      Generally, innocent and wrongly accused individuals aren’t waltzing around with bombs, engaging in car jackings, or returning fire with the police.

      • TugboatPhil

        But, Jill, that’s not what the leftie politicians tell us about innocent people who own guns. You don’t suppose they are lying b**tards do you?

        • Jillane Kent

          I’m just shocked that we weren’t treated to some Reuters style photoshop, superimposing a Gadsen flag and a pocket constitution on the surveillance footage of the suspects.

  • Bemani Dog

    Be careful in Boston. They’re taking out the trash.

  • Guest

    Why weren`t best, clearest pics of bombers published 1st? They obiviously had them.

    • Jillane Kent

      Likely because the police did not want to tip them off. The photo frenzy on the internet probably forced their hand

  • David Moose

    Why weren`t best and clearest pics of bombers published 1st? They obivisouly had them.

  • TocksNedlog

    So . . . the media got the names of BOTH suspects WRONG?

  • Debbie

    Ok..they are lying..there are pics of one naked being put in a cop car..he was fine..not is dead in the shoot out..come on…how dumb do they think we are?!?!!
