BOSTON -- Federal officials deny that a Boston Marathon bombing suspect is in custody, although a law enforcement official briefed on the investigation said an arrest was near.

The official spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Wednesday. The official was not authorized to divulge details of the investigation.

The official says the suspect is expected in federal court in Boston.

Law enforcement agencies had earlier pleaded for the public to come forward with photos, videos or any information that might help them solve the twin bombings that killed three people and wounded more than 170 on Monday.

Investigators circulated information about the bombs, which involved kitchen pressure cookers packed with explosives, nails and other lethal shrapnel. But the FBI said nobody had claimed responsibility.

Whatever and whenever the "state" wishes the sheep to know what happened , they will have video and witnesses coming out the ying yang.

One thing for sure, they cannot be Islamic Terrorist. Maybe some white extremest nut job who hates his mother and has three names. And if they were Islamic, it will take us ten years to punish the loving followers of Mohammed. Allah is great and death to infidels. The Two Commandments.
