Yeah.. was trying not to post the name. He disappeared in mid march, leaving a cryptic note to his roomies.
Two and a half minutes later, the bag exploded, tearing Jeff’s legs apart. A picture of him in a wheelchair, bloodied and ashen, was broadcast around the world as he was rushed to Boston Medical Center. He lost both legs below the knee. “He woke up under so much drugs, asked for a paper and pen and wrote, ‘bag, saw the guy, looked right at me,’” Chris Bauman said yesterday in an interview.

That would be interesting if they captured them tonight or tomorrow. Currently I'm just hearing chit-chat. Nothing much.
After some time went by, according to news reports, Arredondo was so distraught that he climbed in the Marines' van and splashed himself with gasoline. A propane torch he had brought inside was lit accidentally, Arredondo alleged. Arredondo was pulled out to safety by the Marines, however his clothes had caught fire and burned 26% of his body. He received second- and third-degree burns. He was hospitalized in a burn unit for two weeks followed by outpatient home-based treatment. Despite his burns, he attended his son's funeral on a stretcher with two paramedics at each side. Arredondo and his wife Melida both spent time as inpatient psychiatric patients. Arredondo, who once was an undocumented immigrant and is now a US citizen is originally from Costa Rica. At the time he had no insurance and was self-employed working as a handyman. His story made national and international headlines. His recovery took over a year. Since that time he apologized to the Marines for his drastic actions. He was not prosecuted.
