It seems the media cannot stick with a suspect, pinning the Russian native and follower of Islam as the new ‘confirmed suspect’ hours after claiming that Boston Police had detailed the missing Sunil Tripathi as the suspect to CBS news. It was originally reported early this morning by the International Business Times:
“Boston police on Friday revealed the names of two suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing, one of whom is an Indian origin person, Sunil Tripathi, reported CBS-affiliated television station WFSB.”
Sunil Tripathi had gone missing last month and was reportedly ‘depressed’ and left a suicidal note behind before leaving his Philadelphia apartment. Aside from looking very similar to the suspect in the FBI photos, Sunil Tripathi’s troubled history painted the very picture of a bomber.
