Media Flips ‘Confirmed’ Boston Suspect From Sunil Tripathi To Dzhokar Tsarnaev

Early this morning, IB Times and Russia Today had ‘confirmed’ with Boston Police that the Boston Marathon suspect still evading police was indeed Sunil Tripathi. Now, in a 180 move, the suspect has changed to Dzhokar A. Tsarnaev based on a new AP report.

It seems the media cannot stick with a suspect, pinning the Russian native and follower of Islam as the new ‘confirmed suspect’ hours after claiming that Boston Police had detailed the missing Sunil Tripathi as the suspect to CBS news. It was originally reported early this morning by the International Business Times:

Boston police on Friday revealed the names of two suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing, one of whom is an Indian origin person, Sunil Tripathi, reported CBS-affiliated television station WFSB.”

Sunil Tripathi had gone missing last month and was reportedly ‘depressed’ and left a suicidal note behind before leaving his Philadelphia apartment. Aside from looking very similar to the suspect in the FBI photos, Sunil Tripathi’s troubled history painted the very picture of a bomber. You can see the similarities in the photo below:


Dzhokar Tsarnaev — Russian Immigrant

Despite the similarities and convenient back story, AP is now reporting that Dzhokar Tsarnaev is indeed the correct suspect — despite supposed reports from Boston Police. The suspect is only 19 years of age, and ended up settling in Cambridge, Massachusetts after coming over from Chechnya.

Whether or not this will be the last suspect pinned by the media is yet to be seen, however the Independent is reporting that the second suspect was Dzhokar Tsarnaev’s brother — who is now reported to be dead. The new report says:

“The missing suspect has been identified as 19-year-old Dzhokhar A Tsarnaev from Cambridge. National security officials have confirmed that the two suspects are brothers, and the New York Times is reporting that the suspect killed by police has been identified as Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26.”

    reading this site and other sites I was seeing "Sunil" and watching WHDH7 and other Boston stations this morning now getting the name "Dzohkar". It's amazing the details and discrepancies in the "official" MSM story. just heard on WHDH7 a former high-school classmate and current senior "Leila" from Cambridge Rindge and Latin School who was 2 grades earlier than Dzohkar and she wasn't sure which college he went to, she guessed BU. She spoke of how he was the typical "normal" nice kid, very bright, etc… But now I was wondering about the Brown U connection of "Sunil".. this guy was supposedly missing for a month, this is all so mixed up

    Oh what a tangled web we weave, so hard to keep the narrative straight and keep everybody on the same page. But remember, just look at the one picture of the two suspects, do not, I repeat, do not look at any other pictures of any of the other of dozens of people seen with black backpacks and ignore all the runners who said they were told that there was a drill going on. Of, course everyone of them must be lying. We must all believe people who have been caught lying millions of times. Again.

    Good guess is that the brothers had nothing to do with it… *sigh*

    • Mark Brander says:

      They may have been paid/encouraged to plant the bombs, if they are responsible, which now may be the case. We still need to know why officials won't admit to the drill, and who the operatives with backpacks in seal garb were. Lets not forget about Obama's Russian special ops who were responsible for many of the wildfires and the Michigan nuke last summer.

    Interesting how despite incredible image enhancement software which has been available to FBI for decades that the photos released as the designated culprits are so crummy.

    • Dustin says:

      You mean the highly fictionalized image enhancement software you see in movies? Yeah… that's not real. It's a plot device.

      • Connie Spire says:

        Decades ago, license plate nos. from satellites, years ago small arms serial nos. from drones at 30,000 feet notwithstanding engine vibes and atmospheric distortion. Nonfiction, Dustin.

    The Tripathi lie started on Reddit. At 2:00 AM, April 19, @Anonymous posted the false rumor on Twitter (search the timeline and see if you can find an earlier mention). Blame the media if you like. I blame idiots on Reddit and Twitter.

  7. spencer says:

    you're a dick – first you crow about sites like yours uncovering the Sunil link long before the media, then you blame the media when it turns out you were wrong. get a life.

  8. championofwomen says:

    The media doesn't care if they are wrong they just want to be the first one to report it. They are not about the truth, they are about the almighty dollar.
    If the US media really cared about who the bad guys are they would be covering more of the terrorist in our own military.

  9. Renae says:

    This was reported on Russia Today, which only reports news from local networks. Yes it does look like the Boston cops had confirmed it with the media.

  10. Zeke Biek says:

    Islamofascism derives from papofascism, which permeates most of our security services together with their Fatima and Medjugorje myths and their Argentine ratlines

  11. adi says:

    I wonder who the suspect will be next week. It seems like it's really easy to evade the police or the FBI

  12. ada says:

    Well at least they know who they're chasing now. Seems painfully slow though.

  13. darius says:

    I think they should refrain from making public statements before they have their facts straight. They only create panic and a sense of danger.

  14. iuliana says:

    being depressed does not make you a criminal. Is this the evidence they have?

  15. Russ says:

    The suspect is only 19 years of age, and ended up settling in Cambridge, Massachusetts after coming over from Chechnya.
