The new information covers a virtual map and clear surveillance video that confers the route the bomber walked while placing the two devices on Jan. 5.
The bomber planted the devices between 7:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. One device was set in an alley behind the Republican National Committee Headquarters. The other was located next to a park bench next to the Democratic National Committee Headquarters.
Both are just a few blocks from the Capitol building.
The FBI announced Wednesday that investigators further think the bomber was operating out of the Folger Park area of Capitol Hill. It's likewise a location just blocks from the Capitol office buildings. The FBI says that based on the behavior in the video, they think the bomber isn't from the area.
The video recordings are pretty clear. The person's identity is not.
The bomber wore a face mask, glasses, a gray hooded sweatshirt, gloves, and black and light gray Nike Air Max Speed Turf shoes with a yellow logo. A backpack was utilized to transport each of the devices.
Investigators have caught and charged hundreds of people who stormed the Capitol on Jan. 6, yet the would-be bomber has yet to be caught.
Their motive is unknown, yet former U.S. Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund testified before Congress that he thinks the viable devices were planted as a possible diversion before the events the day after.
"We were dealing with two pipe bombs that were specifically set right off the edge of our perimeter to, what I suspect, draw resources away," he announced at a congressional hearing. "I think there was significant coordination with this attack."
The FBI is asking anyone with information to view the virtual map investigators designed and come forward with any data.
"The FBI is extremely grateful to the American people who have already provided us with vital assistance in this case," announced Steven M. D'Antuono, assistant director in charge of the FBI's Washington Field Office. "Since January, the FBI has conducted more than 800 interviews, collected more than 23,000 video files, and assessed more than 300 tips related to this investigation. Those tips have helped us uncover new information, which we are releasing today and asking the public to view it and call us with any information you think may be relevant."
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, and the FBI are suggesting a $100,000 reward for data leading to the identification of the bomber.
