The person responsible for placing two pipe bombs outside the headquarters of the Democratic and Republican parties in Washington, D.C. on the night before the Capitol attack on January 6, 2021, is still at large. The FBI is offering a $500,000 reward for any information that can help lead to their arrest.
The ongoing investigation into the unsolved puzzle remains unresolved after three years, despite efforts to gather information through a public campaign featuring maps, security camera footage, and potential identifying details. Two years ago, investigators released footage of a suspect walking through the Capitol Hill area during the time when the devices were likely planted. They also shared photos of the devices and descriptions of the suspect’s clothing.
According to the FBI, the unidentified person was dressed in Nike Air Max Speed turf shoes, a face mask, glasses, gloves, and a gray hooded sweatshirt.
The explosive devices did not explode, however, the FBI has confirmed that they were “functional” and posed a threat to the community.
