Following the dual explosions at the finish line of the Boston marathon, crucial parts of a bomb have been discovered, right beside where Governor Patrick was sitting.
After two explosions ripped through the Boston marathon on April 15, police began to look for a evidence of the bombs that caused them, and some shocking discoveries have been made. Three people were killed by the blasts, and the homemade bombs were made from pressure cookers. The circuit board from the first bomb was found “directly across the street from where Governor Deval Patrick had been sitting.” The bombs were made with “nails, metal and ball bearings.” So scary.

Investigators have also recovered components of the bombs, enabling them to determine what they consisted of two six-liter pressure cookers packed with nails, metal and ball bearings. The makeshift bombs were placed in black duffel bags, the official said.
The one that exploded first was placed on the ground on Boylston Street, across from finish-line viewing stands where dignitaries, including Governor Deval Patrick, had been sitting earlier. The second duffel blag was placed on the ground about 75 to 100 yards down the street, outside the Forum restaurant at 755 Boylston, according to the official.
This is truly terrifying news.
The Boston Marathon Bombing Was A Terrorist Attack
Boston Police think the attack was an act of terrorism. CNN called the tragedy a “well-planned event.”
CBS News reports that police have a surveillance video showing someone carrying multiple backpacks into the area about 20 minutes before explosions.
It is possible that this was an act of domestic terrorism, and a mysterious person was seen on the roof of a building right before the explosion.
