The release follows days of inaccurate reporting about the case and sloppy detective work by Internet amateurs spearheaded by the Reddit forum r/findthebombings. Both Reddit and The New York Post zeroed in on two young men who later turned out to be innocent. ABC news identified one as Salah Barhoun, 17, a high school track star from Revere, Mass., who attracted the Internet and the New York Post’s attention solely, it seems, because of his brown skin. 

If you have any information about these two men, head to FBI tips site or call 1-800-CALL-FBI.
