Gov. Patrick on Manhunt Aftermath: “I Got Drunk”

Gov. Deval Patrick.

People on the streets of Boston weren’t the only ones drinking following the arrest of the lone living Boston Marathon bombing suspect April 19.

Gov. Deval Patrick had a few rounds himself, according to the Boston Herald.

The Herald reports that Patrick drove to Rouge, a bistro in West Stockbridge, Mass. Saturday, April 20, the day after authorities captured suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev in a boat in Watertown, where he dined alone and was served numerous alcoholic beverages.

“By the end of the meal I was actually quite drunk, by myself,” he is quoted as saying in the paper.

Patrick offered candid insight into his decision making during the manhunt, the “shelter-in-place” order and the aftermath in a Q&A session hosted by HubSpot, a Cambridge marketing firm Wednesday.

Patrick detailed discussions he had with President Barack Obama, the reasoning behind a decision to let the FBI run the investigation and the admission that he wasn’t sure when (or if) the situation would be resolved. read more

Manhunt Sparks Searches in CT, NY

Police in Norwalk on the morning of April 19 boarded an Amtrak Acela train at South Norwalk train station, as authorities up the rail line in Boston search for a second suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings.

BABYLON, NEW YORK – While a day-long manhunt for alleged Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev paralyzed the city, tips in neighboring states led authorities to search ferry docks, trains and even a man in Orient Point, New York, who resembled the suspect.

Two trains in Connecticut were searched in separate incidents on Friday, and Amtrak service between New York and Boston was suspended for much of the day.

In South Norwalk, Connecticut, police boarded an Amtrak Acela train and in nearby Darien, local police brought bomb-sniffing dogs to a suburban railroad that services coastal Connecticut and New York’s northern suburbs.

Connecticut State Police were also on notice after an alert that Tsarnaev drove off in a Honda CR-V and may have headed to Connecticut.

Meanwhile in New London, police descended on and cleared the Cross Sound Ferry Terminal before searching the ferry.

Police there said nobody was in danger. In a separate incident on the same ferry line, a boat captain called in a tip to Long Island authorities that one of his crew spotted someone who resembled Tsarnaev on the ferry. read more

PHOTOS: Boston Streets Deserted as Manhunt Continues

Faneuil Hall around noon on Friday, April 19, 2013.

 

 

 

Images of downtown Boston Friday morning are hard to believe, as streets and areas that should be bustling with people are shown empty and deserted—”like a ghost town,” as many have said on social media. Police were still in the middle of a hunt for a suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing by around noon.
