Is breaking news now on Fox News Channel and -- I am told are the very first images.
But what appears to be one of the bombs that exploded in the Boston Marathon yesterday.
This is brand needs and you're looking at photos -- we received just minutes ago.
Our fox station WP GA fox five in Atlanta -- this image.
We're told it is one of the pressure bombs after it exploded all on there you may be able to CNF BI tags so this is what's left.
Of cause the chaos of what caused the chaos.
Dale Russell the reporter from WP GA fox five -- Atlanta broke this news and he's live with this -- dale.
How do you know what this is and how -- you get it.
-- we got this the resources and verified for us that these are actual crime scene photos from the first ball for Monday's.
Boston Marathon bombing.
To tell me tell me what we're looking at -- private when when I look at it I can't tell what it is.
What you're seeing is a ordinary.
Every day pressure cooker they're very common in the stores but also their komen for bomb making.
You also see a black padded either knapsack or duffel bag that my sources say they believe that the bomb was carried him.
And -- also be small.
Ball bearing -- -- they are tiny almost like dvds some sort of putting.
Holding them together my sources say this was inside the bomb is part of the shrapnel that of course makes a deadlier and more lethal when the bomb explodes.
So investigators have had this from the early minutes when they first got in cleared the people wade took the pictures what you're saying is.
They took pictures of this and since they've been analyzing it trying to figure out where this came from looking at all the materials they are trying to Trace them back to the source.
And from that help in the traced and whoever bought them and put them together.
That's exactly what they do they want to find out who manufactured these pieces.
Where were they soul and who might have gone to the stores where they were sold were so as I said they're very common everyday pieces -- -- be sold throughout the country.
But the key shepherd is that when they get to these pieces and get them into the laboratory.
That's when they're going to find whether there is a simple little.
Piece of DNA on a slice of Scotch tape or a fingerprint left over on a device.
That the bomber doesn't know that they left behind.
-- dale is that it would that we've scroll to the pictures again are these serial numbers on this on this pressure -- that what we're looking at when they zoom in.
We're examining that right now to try to determine exactly what those numbers are.
We've talked to who we believe is the manufacturer but we're still working on that but I think there -- some underwriting laboratory numbers on there.
And there are some numbers that may be what as you say serial numbers.
When we're still looking into that to find out exactly same kind of -- that the FBI and the ATF for doing who manufactured this -- -- see what's left -- -- they've got enough to work with.
And they're going to be able to take that and find out who manufactured it.
Who sold -- and where.
So dale what you're saying is your sources within the FBI or whatever wherever.
Tell you that after the bomb exploded this is a large -- that ended up there at the crime scene.
The rest of it obviously -- didn't cause all the chaos that we're seeing here what are your sources tell you about the suspects foreign and domestic -- they have an idea yet.
One of the things that I was reminded of when I talked today to some on my sources as.
What is the message of the -- what were they trying to say.
If that's what they're trying to sort through right now one of the things that they look at is the location the Boston Marathon.
The day on tax day.
On patriots day.
For five days before the anniversary of Waco.
These are all images and symbols if you will that investigators are sifting through to see.
Is that have anything to do with the message that was put here with these two bombs of the Boston Marathon.
Obviously they can't rule out.
Foreign if you will terrorism and they're looking at all of that trying to determine.
Who was behind this and why.
You know you might have thought that in the moments after this bombing that when these pressure -- exploded that they would have exploded into a lot of pieces instead.
What these pictures seem to indicate is that very large pieces held together.
We see numbers on there that are identifying marks we see materials that are clearly according to your sources at least.
The materials that held this bomb as it sat either a trash can or on this side of the curve or whatever.
And and these are very valuable pieces of of evidence which I'm guessing will be iconic pieces as we move forward dale I hate to even go there but.
I'm guessing their reporters all over Boston right now this one included who were wondering.
How the guy in Atlanta come across this.
I'd love to -- -- Shepperd good and I think that's a conversation we'll have to have -- off there.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Our are intelligence reporter Catherine here -- she's been working intelligence from the FBI and other sources in Washington.
-- these first pictures of what the remains of this bomb what are your sources saying about what sort of evidentiary value they have I'm guessing very.
Time -- the bomb components themselves have a very high evidentiary value but we know tonight and had confirmation just within the last couple of -- Is that these bomb components what you're seeing on the screen right now they're being gathered up.
And they're being shipped down to the Washington DC area to what's known as the FBI crime lab in Quantico Virginia.
That's really taken these components these parts.
And they painstakingly reconstruct them kind of like what you see with an archaeologist.
At one of these -- I think pieces back together.
And that's how they understand exactly what that pressure -- was the model the make the year and it's that kind of information.
That can allow them to identify.
The source of purchase and there that's the key because sometimes you have a witness who can identify a suspect someone who's acting a little strange.
Or they may have video in the store.
That can look at a specific time frame and find that individuals so what we've got -- -- the first pictures.
That the puzzle the pieces of the puzzle from the crime scene.
Now they're coming down to Washington.
Going to that crime lab they will be reassembled kind of -- archaeologist does.
With a broken piece of history they put it together they identified the source then they -- and identify.
Who purchased it and from that a very powerful -- --
