over his right shoulder.
The first shot from the back is there to show the design of the strap on the backpack. The rest of the shots are various views from the left side
showing how Dzhokhar's right shoulder appears to someone looking at him from his left side.
In every shot we know that he is carrying the backpack, because this is a video sequence in which the backpack is clearly visible most of the time,
although, in one or two of the shots a casual viewer might not think he had the backpack with him because it is hidden behind his body as he walks.

. I think that Tamerlan may have left his bomb, but I think that Dzhokhar had second thoughts and left the
scene of the bombings with his backpack containing his bomb. This bomb was the one they used in the shootout in Watertown.
I think the third bomber was another individual who may possibly have been duped into carrying a bomb by Tamerlan. Could it be his wife or another
party? I'm not sure if she was at the scene or could be found in any photos. I don't know what the official line is on her, but I think there was a
This is assuming that they all weren't patsies involved in a drill that went live. The fact that Dzhokhar left with his backpack and that a bomb of
the pressure cooker type was used in the shootout argues for the scenario above.
