FBI Releases New Video in D.C. Pipe Bomb Case
The FBI has released new surveillance video of the person suspected of placing pipe bombs at the headquarters of the Republican National Committee and the Democratic National Committee in January.
The footage, which the FBI released via Twitter on Tuesday along with a new wanted poster, shows the suspected pipe bomber the evening of Jan. 5, walking along residential Capitol Hill streets and then sitting on a bench, looking at something at their feet.
“The FBI is asking the public to watch the videos of this person – you may recognize their gait, body language, or mannerisms,” the FBI said in a press release. “We are asking the public to come forward with any information that could assist us, including any odd or out-of-character behavior you noticed in a family member, friend, or coworker, leading up to or after Jan. 5th.”
In the video, the suspected bomber can be seen on a residential sidewalk standing beside a backpack — which the FBI said was used to transport the bombs.
The suspect appears to put on glasses, gazing across the street as a man walks past with his dog. Later, the suspect can be seen stretching an arm as they walk down the sidewalk holding the backpack at their side.
The FBI said the suspect may have entered a vehicle or taken an item from a vehicle and placed it into the backpack.
The FBI Washington Field Office asks anyone with information concerning thesse incides to contact the agency’s toll-free tip line at 1-800-CALL-FBI (1-800-225-5324) or submit tips online at tips.fbi.gov.
