WATERTOWN, Mass. (MyFoxBoston.com) – Hollowed out fireworks found inside a charity bin have set off a wave of new investigations.
Planet Aid operations manager Michael Tambosi says the Watertown fireworks couldn't have been left there by the bombing suspects. Tambosi told the Boston Herald the bins were emptied at 5:20 a.m. Sunday, more than two days after Bomber No. 1 one was killed by police and Bomber No. 2 was captured.
On Wednesday, a worker emptying the bin found a plastic bag with 10 to 15 empty fireworks. This was less than three miles away from the shootout scene.
The feds spent six hours at the scene and eventually towed the bins away for processing Wednesday. At this point, the FBI is not saying if the fireworks are connected to the Boston Marathon blasts.
