Boston aftermath slowly unveils truth

by Stacey Oparnica

Following the Boston Marathon bombings, information has gradually been released. The Daily Aztec has been compiling updates from The New York Times and The Associated Press.   As of now, three have been killed and more than 170 injured.

Despite conflicting news reports, no arrests have yet been made, according to a senior official in Washington.


The identities of the three deceased victims were released:

o Martin Richard, 8, from Dorchester, Mass.

o Lingzi Lu, 23, from Shenyang, China

o Krystle Campbell, 29, from Arlington, Mass.


Officials said the homemade bombs were constructed using household pressure cookers and packed with shrapnel and nails.

Police discovered a portion of a pressure cooker lid on a nearby rooftop.

FBI officials are asking the public to submit any videos or photographs of the blast sites.

The FBI released a statement concerning the reporting of inaccurate information by news media.

“We ask the media, particularly at this early stage of the investigation, to exercise caution and attempt to verify information through appropriate official channels before reporting.”
