Boston Police Scanner Rumor: There is Potentially a Third Bombing Suspect

Thanks to the Boston Police scanner, which can be seen here, Watertown, Mass., there may be news regarding an accomplice to Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and Tamerlan Tsarnaev. Multiple sources are reporting that electronic surveillance may have found records of other people the Tsarnaev brothers were working with, but that information has not been released to the media yet. Well, hold onto your seats because we may have some breaking information.

According to cedargrove via Reddit, which has surprisingly been the most up-to-date resource for news regarding the entire events that began to take place at MIT and subsequently Watertown last night, there may potentially be a third bomber law enforcement officials are having to deal with.

Via this thread, which is a transcription of minute-by-minute radio chatter on the Boston Police scanner, the following updates have been issued since noon:

—-START QUOTED THREAD—-

EDIT 126 10:40: Waiting on mod position. A different suspect may be found, may have transmitter on him. They are being cautious, white male, 60-70 yrs old. Brown jacket, device is in jacket.

EDIT 130 10:47: He has something in his right hand that he holding. Last person had a dead man switch. (If someone lets go of a dead man switch it triggers the mechanism)

EDIT 132 10:52: Making attempts to block a possible blast.

EDIT 131 10:51: Suspect is shaking his head “no” and trying to arch his back up, speculating that he may be trying to do something with the device [...]This is not Suspect #2 aka White Hat.

EDIT 137 11:03: To further clarify, guy with the white hat has nothing to do with this (as far as we know). He is still on the loose. This suspect is an old man (60-70) with grey hair and appears to be holding a dead man switch.

EDIT 144 11:22: They said they need to bring in a second EOD robot and a second Bearcat (armored vehicle)

EDIT 143 11:19: EOD robot is still clearing the suspect. He will be interviewed after he is cleared.

EDIT 142 11:18: Officials are supposed to give any update some time soon.

EDIT 141 11:15: They are telling all non-SWAT to leave the area.

EDIT 140 11:14: Subject definitely has some kind of device or switch in his hand.

EDIT 139 11:11: EOD (explosive ordinance disposal) robot is attempting to remove the jacket from the man right now.

EDIT 147 11:26: Because it keeps getting asked. The suspect that is being searched by the EOD robots, that is handcuffed, that has the dead man switch, is a 60-70 yr old gray haired man. He was specifically identified as having salt and pepper hair, even the age 90 was thrown out. This is NOT White Hat aka Suspect #2

EDIT 154 11:47: Four robots operating on the old man right now. No word on device or explosive.

EDIT 161 12:02: Suspect is “clear”, safe for EMS to approach him.

EDIT 199 1:21: I have heard no updates on the old man with the dead switch or the location of White Hat. I am only listening to the scanner but I do check messages for info.

—–END QUOTED THREAD—–

So, that’s a potential third person that’s a “60-70 yr old gray haired man,” who had “some kind of device or switch in his hand,” that was potentially a “a dead man switch.” Radio chatter about this specific event has gone silent for now, but there may be an announcement about it later today.

We’ll keep you updated on the Boston Police scanner.
