Sunil Tripathi Information 4/18/2013

Update, 4/25/13- According to the USA Today, Tripathi has been found dead.

UPDATE 11:39 AM: It is NOT CLEAR why the Boston PD stated on scanners that Sunil Tripathi was in the area last night. WE DO NOT KNOW WHY THIS OCCURRED OR THE BACKGROUND.

UPDATE 8:56 AM: Reported as alternate name Dzhokhar Tsarnaev
BOSTON POLICE SCANNER: MIKE MULUGETA IS DEAD

3:06 AM: SUNIL TRIPATHI NAMED AS ONE OF THE SUSPECTS BY THE BOSTON POLICE. MIKE MULUGETA NAMED AS THE OTHER.

CONFIRMED 2:26: ONE OF THE ARRESTED IN THE MIT/WATERTOWN SHOOTINGS IS ONE OF THE BOSTON MARATHON BOMBERS.

UPDATE 1:01 am EST: Holy shit, something's happening at MIT. Three officers shot and two "Middle Eastern" Men firing at them with police and grenades.

There has been speculation, mostly kicked off by Reddit that missing Ivy League student Sunil Tripathi could be involved in the Boston bombing. He went missing last month without a trace. The FBI became involved in the case, even though it was a presumed suicide.


Tripathi was a philosophy major at Brown University, not far from Boston, where the search expanded to. His father is a rich software engineer.



Right after he went missing, explosives were found near Brown University and destroyed in a controlled detonation. No one had been found behind it. The location is halfway between Brown and Boston.

The first incident was reported at 8:34 p.m. on March 12. Police and fire personnel responded to the area of Pine Street and Tower Hill Drive. Witnesses at the nearby Target store on Washington Street reported seeing a bright flash and hearing two explosions from that area.

Several unexploded devices were found at the scene and later detonated under secure conditions by the State Police Bomb Squad.
The second incident was a few days later at 7:49 p.m. on March 15. The second incident was near the first, in the area of Hearthstone and Fieldstone lanes. The area was searched but no explosives were found.
His former classmate was a bit freaked out by the whole thing:

His original Facebook profile was pretty standard fare, though the site meant to find him has gone offline.

Now there is speculation that he may have been in Boston on Monday.

Weird.

UPDATE 3:37 AM.... Weird stuff from his family on Twitter before the bombing. Were they in on it?

  2. Something is wrong here. The link to the explosives story has nothing to do with Brown University. I'm local and can't make any sense of it.

  3. Yeah something isn't right. There is a Pine St. in Providence which is somewhat near Brown University, and there is a Washington St down town Providence. But there is no Target store. They are taking an incident that happened in Hanover , MA with the same street names and tying it into happening in Providence, which isn't the case.

  6. This speculative name-shaming is SO WRONG and must incredibly painful for the family of the missing person. If you have a lead, contact the police. Do not throw this man's name around before anyone has been found guilty. Learn from the NY Post, who severely disrupted the lives of completely innocent people that were mislabeled as "suspects" in the Boston bombings.

    1. Seriously. Not to mention he's been missing for months and his family has to see this. People just want to speculate, but until it's proven nothing like this should be published, in my opinion anyway. Especially because he's missing. And it's just like the first picture that was circulating of the "suspect" that was totally wrong. Poor kids scared to leave his house and all he did was attended the marathon.

    2. It is just as bad or worse (many more people are slandered) to link the event to a certain group, like Conservatives or Christians, at this time. Even if those involved call themselves Conservatives or Christians, that doesn't make it so. Get ready for the hate-fest against Conservatives by Liberals.

      Delete
    3. Of course. Conservatives and Christian terrorists never, ever, ever, ever kill people with bombs and bullets.

      Let's just assume it's EVIL MUSLIMS. That's fine. They're evil.

  8. Guy fits the criteria Che Guevarra shirt. He is definitely not a True American. Goes underground to make bombs, and punish America for its prosperity. The only thing that can defeat America is itself. Not little douchebags making bombs to bring misery to us. I worry about the youth of mankind there minds are being plagued by music and mostly the idiocy of adults. Islam isnt 600 years behind, its the foolishness followed by examples. The downfall of man will be corruption of greed. For the atheists of this world you all must be more intelligent then Albert Einstein who at his limits was an a agnostic. Keep your feeble minded thoughts of biology to yourself and enjoy the comfort of freedom of personal thought. One thing America must change is the death penalty. Sometimes the past has more prevalence then the future.

    3. Are you kidding me? How could his hair have grown that much in a month? It is sad seeing the lack of logic people are using to desperately try to connect dots. And that twitter response is ambiguous - she doesn't mention WHY the picture freaks her out (like seeing a picture of someone responsible for doing something so terrible). Everyone needs to get a grip and stop making assumptions and baseless speculation. It is so sad to see people jumping to conclusions like this and hurting others as a result.

    4. You are right no one ever in the history of man kind has ever changed his look to avoid detection. such as maybe using a wig or hair extensions or anything else for that matter. my bad.

    5. Yeah but that isn't concrete evidence at all. For every hypothetical thing that could link someone to something there is another hypothetical that does the opposite. Up until the chatter on the police scanner this was purely speculative based on things that were conjecture and not backed up with solid and specific evidence. And to make heavy accusatory claims like that before knowing for sure is absolutely irresponsible, even if it does turn out to be him.

      Delete
    6. Nothing on here or reddit can claim to be 'concrete evidence'! Reddit was ready to hang two completely innocent dudes because they had black backpacks. These wannabe sleuths have too much time on their hands, but I suppose it's entertainment. Nothing more.

  10. If you click on the link to the actual article it states clearly that controlled detonation and other bombs going off occurred in HANOVER, MA. And if you read this article then you would know they said,"The location is halfway between Brown and Boston." (which Hanover, MA is, pretty close at least) So, no, there was no controlled bomb detonation in Rhode Island, and also none of you can read.

    3. I'm watching this unfold, if they have not been able to find this missing student and he is involved in the Boston marathon incident, i am fearful we could see more incidents occur before he is captured.
      Either way my heart goes out to his family, all they know is their family member is missing. If it was a member of my family,i would feel awful right now.

      Delete
    4. Yeah a bomb went off halfway between Brown and Boston, so what? That is still not nearly sufficient evidence to even suspect it was him. The photos of the attacker in the white hat do not look like him. The Bomber has a broader face and a more pronounced jawline than Sunil. Stop being stupid and wait for EVIDENCE.

    1. I've been listening to the scanner since this all started. Seems like they got caught possibly planting bombs at MIT and got spotted by the security guard.

  28. The FBI getting involved in the disappearance of this kid only 2 days after he disapeared suggests to me that they may have suspected him of something. Possibly on a watchlist.
