    Police need to verify this information. Mike Mulugeta is an Ethiopian Name. The suspect does not look as an Ethiopian or nor does any Ethiopian will do this type of act. So they are using stolen Identities. Suspect number two must be using a stolen identity of the student who disappeared from Brown University, perhaps even harmed the poor fellow. The police need this information to identify these guys properly and find out what their motives are to harm innocent people of Boston. I hope they catch them and find out who sent these beasts to USA.
