Thank you and please keep this thread alive!!!

I'm reading some articles on 24france and the FBI branch in Boston tweeted this:
"Bombing suspect may be driving 4-door, '99, green Honda Civic w/ Mass. plates reading: 116GC7. #FBI #BostonMarathon "

Can anyone run the plates? I remember a plate run for the sandy hook vehicle. So if anyone would be so kind

Sorry if this was posted in your reddit logs, I didn't see any mention of it

reply to post by Danbones

Just posted!!
"Le corps de Tamerlan Tsarnaev a été retrouvé sur la scène d'une fusillade avec la police. Il a été formellement identifié. La police a ajouté que son jeune frère Dzhorkar a alors pris une autre voiture, et a même roulé sur le corps de son frère."

So basically, Tamerlan Tsarnaev was found dead by police and was formally identified. Police are now saying that his younger brother, Dzhorkar has stolen another car and even ran over his brother's corpse..

Another weird thing I just read:

NBC rapporte que Dzhokhar Tsarnaev a été naturalisé le 11 septembre 2012 en se basant sur des documents officiels.
vendredi 19 avril 2013 19h18

Apparently according to Dzhorkar Tsarnaev's official documents, he was 'naturalized' on September 11, 2012. Freaky freaky :p of course, it'd be 9/11 of 2012..
