Car Sought In Mass. Manhunt Located

MIDDLETOWN, Conn. (AP) _ Connecticut State Police say a vehicle believed to be linked to a wanted Boston Marathon bombing suspect has been recovered.

Police said in a news release Friday that a gray Honda CRV with Massachusetts plates was found in Boston.

Authorities had said earlier that the vehicle “could possibly be occupied by” the suspect wanted in the Boston attacks. The suspect has since been identified by law enforcement officials and family members as 19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev .

His brother, 26-year-old Tamerlan Tsarnaeve, was killed overnight.

The news release provided scant other details about the vehicle.

The two men are suspected of killing a Massachusetts Institute of Technology police officer late Thursday, then stealing a car at gunpoint. Monday’s bombings killed three people and wounded more than 180 others.
