As we come on the air, this is a country in search of a bomber and there are new clues inside those bombs. At this hour, investigators think one or both of the bombs may have been encased in an ordinary metal pressure cooker. It may have been packed with nailed and ball bearings to inflict more injury. And tonight new details are surfacing about those who died, including the 8-year-old member of the little league. While at the white house, the flag flies at half staff, the president has just announced he will head to boston on thursday and our team is standing by to bring you the latest. The latest reporting and we'll start with abc's brian ross who is no boston tonight. Brian? Reporter: No one is in custody, but there are new developments about the bomb and the bomber. Vffingsors at the crime scene have already recovered the remains of one pressure cooker bomb which failed to fully explode. According to officials briefed on the case.

Reporter: The fbi agents tell us they have tons of video and somewhere in there will be a picture of the person who planted these two bombs, diane.
