After confusing reports from the police scanners, false identifications of alleged suspects, and a lockdown of the city, the facts about the connection between the Boston Marathon bombers and the Watertown shootout are becoming clearer.
Editor's Note: A gruesome photo of Tamerlan's corpse has surfaced showing his body riddled with bullet holes. There is a huge gash in the ribcage area, possibly from the explosions and his face is covered in blood. To see the graphic photo, click here.

UPDATE: 9:46 AM EST
Abdulrahman Ali Alharbi, the Saudi Arabian man at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, is being treated for injuries following the bombing at the finish line. An official close to the investigation says that the man has been questioned, however, he remains a witness, not a suspect.
In the beginning, details were murky. And less than 24 hours later, the facts still aren't concrete. There are, however, facts that will hopefully lead investigators to the unknown organization or individual who planned the attack.
