Partial transcript of remarks by Rick DesLauriers, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI in Boston, on the deadly bombings at the Boston Marathon. The press conference was held on the evening of April 15, 2013.

Thank you very much, Gov. [Deval] Patrick. The most important that I want to convey to everybody this evening has already been mentioned by Gov. Patrick. The FBI is taking the lead in this investigation. It is asserting federal jurisdiction. It will do so through the Boston Joint Terrorism Task Force, members of which are comprised by all the members of the law enforcement agencies here represented at the podium. This is will be a combined federal, state, and local effort. It will be an ongoing investigation.

It is a criminal investigation that is – has the potential – is a potential terrorist investigation. We will work diligently to gather information and gather all the facts and bring those who are responsible for this crime to justice as swiftly as possible.

It is an ongoing investigation as Gov. Patrick mentioned. I’m not at liberty right now to go into details about ongoing investigations. But echoing Gov. Patrick’s words, I encourage everyone to have a heightened state of vigilance here in the Boston area tonight and tomorrow as we move forward.

I urge anybody who has any information pertaining to this crime to call 1-800-CALL-FBI. This is a tip line we have set up ready to receive tips that might come in or leads that might come in.

The FBI is bringing a substantial – very, very substantial – federal resources to bear, along with our federal partners. ATF is represented here – Gene Marquez from the Boston ATF Office. A key ally of ours. All the law enforcement agencies here will be bringing tremendous resources to bear.

All federal resources that can be brought to bear will be brought up here to the Boston area.
