Boston Marathon Bombing Suspect Possibly Identified and Arrested UPDATED

The age of 24 hour cable news/Twitter feeds have come smashing together...

Via CNN, The Miami Herald had reported that Boston Marathon bombing investigators may have identified a suspect.

There had been reports of a possible suspect leaving a black bag at the site of the second explosion via surveillance video.

Reports also said that surveillance footage from the Lord & Taylor across the street from the second explosion shows this supposed suspect.

Here's how we blogged it up it via the myriad of Twitter feeds and avalanche of information:




Meanwhile, the AP is reporting that the suspect is already in police custody, and is expected in federal court:


CBS News, meanwhile, says that NO arrest has been made:


The Boston Globe says their source is saying there is a suspect in custody:

Press is gathering outside the Federal Court in Boston:


UPDATE (2:40 pm):

Boston Globe is now saying there is NO suspect in custody, contradicting their source from earlier:


UPDATE (2:49 pm):

Ah, the internet news age. 

We'll update this post as we get more information.

And by "update," we mean when an actual real-life human person has been for-real arrested.
