The FBI released new footage of the suspect who planted pipe bombs outside the headquarters of the Democratic National Committee and the Republican National Committee ahead of the deadly Jan. 6 Capitol riot.
The newly released video shows the suspect walking with a backpack on a sidewalk and to areas outside the DNC and RNC where authorities later found the bombs.
The footage shows the suspect between 7:30 and 8:30 p.m. on Jan. 5, when officials believe the bombs were planted.
At 7:40 p.m., the suspected bomber, wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and a mask, is seen standing in a residential neighborhood on South Capitol Street with the bag, which is briefly set on the ground as a man walking his dog passes by.
At 7:52, the suspected bomber was seen sitting on a bench outside the DNC. The suspect appears to zip up a bag, stand up and walk away.
At 8:14 p.m., the suspected bomber is seen in an alley near the RNC. Moments later, a security camera captures the suspect walking in front of the Capitol Hill Club.
The FBI also released a new wanted poster with images of the suspect and the distinctive Nike “Air Max Speed Turf” shoes with a yellow swoosh that the individual wore.
The FBI said it is hoping the video will help someone recognize the person’s “gait, body language, or mannerisms” to help identify them.
“We still believe there is someone out there who has information they may not have realized was significant until now. We know it can be a difficult decision to report information about family or friends — but this is about protecting human life,” Steven D’Antuono, the assistant director in charge of the FBI’s Washington field office said.
“These pipe bombs were viable devices that could have been detonated, resulting in injury or death. We need the public’s help to identify the individual responsible for placing these pipe bombs, to ensure they will not harm themselves or anyone else,” D’Antuono added.
There is a $100,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of a suspect.
