Original story below.
Authorities have an image of a suspect carrying, and possibly leaving, a black bag at the site of one of the bombings at the Boston Marathon on Monday, CNN and the Boston Globe reported Wednesday afternoon.
Sources told CNN officials identified the suspect using footage from a Lord & Taylor department store and a television station.
CNN’s John King reported authorities made a “clear identification” of the suspect and described it as a breakthrough in the investigation.
King reported the footage was analyzed to such a degree that it was possible to discern facial features.
