Watertown Hero David Henneberry Points Police to Bomb Suspect
Watertown, Mass., resident David Henneberry is being labeled a hero after he apparently alerted police that he stumbled on a bloody body lying in his boat in the backyard of his home.
Police identified the bloody body as the alleged Boston Marathon bomber, 19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.
Henneberry did not return ABC News’ request for a comment.
The chain of events that led to the discovery of the most wanted man in America began around 6 p.m., when Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick lifted the Boston lockdown and ordered the restart of mass transit.
At approximately 7 p.m., Henneberry took advantage of the lifted lockdown and entered his backyard to walk his dog. Henneberry noticed something amiss with his prized boat, according to Henneberry’s neighbor, George Pizzuto.
