I've gotten breaking news alerts that they are close to or have made an arrest in the Boston Marathon bombing.  I hope that this is true, and they've really found the person or persons responsible.  It just seems awfully quick, although they have lots of footage to see who possibly left the bombs.

SO disappointing that this turned out to not be true. Since so many major and (usually) trustworthy news outlets were reporting the arrest, I never suspected it to be untrue. Ugh.

The official word is now that no arrests have been made.

Very conflicting reports right now, some sources say that arrests have been made while other sources are saying that they have a person they are looking for, but no arrests have been made.

I hope it is true. I just saw a report that there are suspects but no one can confirm that arrests have been made at this time.
