Here’s a small piece of good news: Security cameras played an integral role in the arrest of a suspect earlier today, according to this report from USA Today.
Investigators gathered a plethora of evidence from various surveillance sources:
“CNN’s John King quotes the sources as saying that surveillance video from a nearby Lord & Taylor department store was key in the investigation. ‘The camera from Lord & Taylor is the best source of video so far,’ said Dot Joyce, a spokeswoman for Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino tells the Boston Globe. ‘All I know is that they are making progress.'”
We are sending our love to Boston.
**NOTE: Later reports from today have stated that no suspect has been arrested yet, but rather two persons of interest are being sought thanks at least in part to security footage.**
