There are still no suspects in the Boston Marathon Bombings that has left over 175 injured and 3 dead said the FBI at a Tuesday morning news conference.

“Our mission is clear to bring to justice those responsible for the marathon bombings,” said lead investigator Federal Bureau of Investigations Agent Rick DesLauriers. The FBI is asking the public to contact their tip line 1.800.CALL.FBI with any information and has asked for people with video from the incident to turn it over to investigators.

Governor Deval Patrick said despite rumors that police deactivated several devices in the city only two active bombs were ever found, the two bombs that exploded near the marathon finish line. The governor said officials do not have reason to believe that the city is at risk of a continued threat however the crime scene will remain active.

Police Commissioner Ed Davis said “we are in the process of securing the most complex crime scene we have dealt with in the history of our department.” He estimated the scene will remain active for at least the next two days. Davis called on the people of the city to have patience and to stand clear of the scene while it remains active.

Tomorrow officials are looking to hold an interfaith prayer service in the city for victims and people affected by the bombings. More details will be released later on Thursday. In the meantime a support center has been established at the Castle in Boston.
