There is no doubt that this Chinese man fears for his life and is unwilling to come forward until his is required to testify. Coming from a more difficult society..maybe China or Taiwan or HK..he knows that he is in danger from these radicals.

I heard he left his phone in the car so they were able to trace it. I’ll read the link later on this fine American!

Wow. That explains a lot. Very cool. I’m guessing that the brothers were heading out of town when they were pinged and chased.

Looks like we can stop wondering if he was ever involved since he told the cops how to track the bombers through his GPS and phone.

I'm confused. In the shootout photos that somebody took with their iPhone, you see two cars: a sedan and a Mercedes SUV.

Why did they carjack the guy when they already had a vehicle???

yes - in the wrong place at the wrong time, but we Americans are so fortunate he was there. He made brilliant moves under the circumstances.

He has been wanting to avoid the publicity, and Moskowitz agreed to use only is first name.

“He told [the police] that his iPhone and the satellite system in the car could both be tracked,” Moskowitz says.

PS: THANKS for getting a ping list started!!!

Impossible to screw it up. :-)

Mesta knows all about it. Think she has carried about three/four of them at the same time-—all hot topics/crimes.

IIRC, after the carjack victim escaped, the bombers abandoned their own car along the side of a rode.

Isn’t this a bit too neatly tied up? If they hadn’t told him they were the bombers, his 911 about a car hijacking wouldn’t have gotten
much attention that night.

But they told him (although they were on the run); and he was in a position to report them to the police, along with the make and license of the car?

Or is there more to it somehow?

This guy has oodles of wealth you know....his vhicle was about 50 grand....Wonder if he’s protecting his parents by not wanting to reveal his real name? They may very well be well known, at least in his country.

He didn't plan on it, but even if he hadn't...the suv was outfitted with a satellite tracking mechanism that also came into play. At 50 grand for that suv it likely was loaded with everything...(pardon the pun)

I admit, I’m thinking along the same lines as you. It just is way too linear for me. My spidey senses were all over this one the night this all unfolded.

Hope I’m wrong. Time will tell.

It seems that suspect white hat was driving the car and followed the brother in the carjacked auto. They pulled over and transferred their bags of goodies. The younger brother jumped in the truck with them other two and iirc, when he escaped, they went and got the other car again.

These were not the sharpest knives in the drawer.

Ahh, isn’t that sweet. A candle light dinner.

Of all the crazy things to ask, why would anyone think he couldn’t drive across state lines? Perhaps it was lost in translation. Here’s a crazy observation - with all the foreigners in this story, are there any Americans in Boston anymore?
