Suspect's name has changed and his age is now being given as 23 rather than 24.  This article says he lived with 2 other guys so maybe the original name given belongs to one of them.  Maybe he was using someone's debit or credit card? 

Still plenty of info to figure out.

Interesting in that we were just having a discussion a few days on some of the now available 'exotic' batteries.

One of the major 'mistakes' the bomber made was in purchasing exotic batteries for the bombs and the batteries were easily traced directly to him!

I've read dozens of articles on the bomber this morning.

No military background.

No college degree although he did take some engineering classes.

He has worked as a computer repairman. 

I guess that background would give one a lot of 'expertise'. 

Still not seeing much factual info on the 'why' of what he was doing.

Plenty of speculation from both far left and far right on Twitter though. 

As usual...

about 'half' are going to be wrong ;) ;) ;)

I'm following the developments on Twitter.

They're currently in the process of doing a mandatory evacuation for a 5 mile radius surrounding the bomber's home. 

This is in a town of over 40K people so it's going to take a long time just to get everyone evacuated.

At that point someone will have to go into the home and see what all is there and if it presents a danger to the public. 

Once they 'clear' the home of anything dangerous then they can start looking for additional evidence and what they typically refer to as a 'forensic' investigation.  They also try to find out the 'why' behind it all.  I've seen many comments on Twitter from friends and neighbors about what a nice person he was and what a nice family he was from.

I guess you don't always know your friends and neighbors :-\ :-\ :-\

No 'new' reports of leftover bombs.

I won't be surprised if all of this doesn't create at least one 'copycat' bomber.

The good thing about someone like this is than unless they pay extreme attention to detail they aren't around for long!!!

In the guy's confession he did say he really wasn't sorry but they still haven't come up with a real motive.

I don't believe that any of the 'high tech' batteries are made here.  The batteries are assembled here into multiple arrays but are made offshore.

Asia is a nice term for China.
