FBI Special Agent Richard DesLauriers said Thursday that the photos of the two suspects in the Boston Marathon bombings released by the government “should be the only ones” the public relies on to assist in the investigation.

“The photos and videos are posted for the public and media to use, review, and publicize. For clarity, these images should be the only ones and I emphasize the only ones the public should view to assist us,” DesLauriers said. “Other photos should not be deemed credible and they unnecessarily divert the public’s attention in the wrong direction and create undue work for vital law enforcement resources.”
