BOSTON - A screen grab of the Boston Marathon obtained by 7NEWS shows what appears to be a young bombing victim and one of the suspects.
Martin Richard, circled left, is the 8-year-old killed on Monday. ABC News said the photo apparently shows one of the bombing suspect, in the white hat, circled right, minutes before the bomb went off.
The backpack containing one of the bombs may already be on the ground in the crowd, circled at the bottom of the photo.
Richard was a typical 8-year-old who loved to ride his bike and play baseball, according to a neighbor.
"My dear son Martin has died from injuries sustained in the attack on Boston," said Martin's father, Bill Richard in a statement sent to ABC News. "My wife and daughter are both recovering from serious injuries. We thank our family and friends, those we know and those we have never met, for their thoughts and prayers. I ask that you continue to pray for my family as we remember Martin."
The suspect in the white hat has been identified as Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, 19. He is the FBI's Suspect 2 and the focus of the ongoing manhunt. Tsarnaev's father said his son is an angel that was in medical school.
The other suspect, who wore a black hat in photos released by the FBI, was identified as Dzhokhar's older brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, by a relative.
Tamerlan Tsarnaev, formerly dubbed Suspect 1 by the FBI, was confirmed dead early Friday morning after a series of violent events including a robbery, carjacking, and shootout.
