David Green snapped an iPhone photo shortly after the Boston Marathon bombings Monday.
When the FBI released images of two suspects Thursday, Green, with the help of a friend, noticed something towards the lower portion of his own image. It was Suspect Two, in a white cap.
Green’s photo shows the suspect at a side angle leaving the bombing scene.
“I spoke to the FBI and it may be the best photo they have,” the Jacksonville native posted on his Facebook account.
Never miss a local story.
In an interview late Thursday with The New York Times, Green confirmed that the picture was genuine, and that the FBI had requested a copy.
“I have spoken to several agents,” Green said, “and they have got the photos, they are picking up material from me, and I don’t think there’s any doubt.”
Agents had told him, he relayed to The New York Times, that his picture was the best they had, because it was taken from a better camera than the others that were posted.
