Boston Marathon Hoax Suspect Gets Day in Court
A Boston man appeared in court Wednesday on charges of staging a hoax at this year's Boston Marathon finish line.
Kevin Edison is charged with disturbing the peace and "purporting a hoax," following the discovery of a backpack in the city's Copley Square.
Police encountered Edison walking the street shrouded and barefoot. The backpack was found to contain a rice cooker.
A second back was found as well, believed to belong to a member of the media.
Bostonians are observing the one-year anniversary this week of the Boston Marathon bombing.
