Transcript: U.S. Attorney Carmen Ortiz’s remarks on the Boston Marathon bombings – evening press conference on April 15, 2013

Partial transcript of remarks by Carmen Ortiz, U.S. Attorney for the District of Massachusetts, on the bombings at the Boston Marathon at a press conference on April 15, 2013:

Good evening. I just want to echo [what] the Governor had said and many others have said throughout the day today that this is a horrific tragedy in our city of Boston.

And we on behalf of the Department of Justice are here to provide all the resources necessary to this investigation.

There are a lot of questions and questions that we wish we could answer at this point but what I can assure is that this is a very thorough and active and fluid ongoing investigation. And I ask that you help with that. Quite frankly, I know that there is a lot of information that is being sought. As the Governor said, there’s been a bit of misinformation. We do not want to add to that misinformation.

And what we want to do is to continue to investigate this matter, get to the individual or individuals that may be responsible for this, and the Department of Justice is prepared to provide all of the assistance necessary to our – not only the FBI and ATF and our other federal agencies but our state and local partners as well. So I just wanted to echo that on behalf of the Department. Thank you.
