The Ever-Evolving Details Of The Marathon Bombing Manhunt
When it comes to a fast-moving and emotional story like the pursuit of the Boston bombing suspects, the expression “fog of war” seems appropriate. As the fog lifts in the aftermath, some of what was first reported turns out to be wrong, or at least not precisely correct. We discuss some examples of this, from the robbery at the Cambridge 7-11, to the location of the boat in which Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was found.
David Boeri, WBUR senior reporter.
WBUR, “[Boston Police Department Superintendent William] Evans says he doesn’t know exactly who was responsible for searching the area of the boat. He also says he can’t comment on many of the details because they’re under investigation by the FBI.”
WCVB, “Like all Watertown residents, [David] Henneberry stayed in his Franklin Street home as the hunt for Tsarnaev paralyzed much of eastern Massachusetts on Friday. When he looked out the window at his boat at one point during the day, he noticed something was amiss.”
