Reports are coming in from Rhode Islanders who experienced the incident firsthand. One North Kingstown runner finished the race moments before the explosions. Frank Coseglia said he was a block and a half away when it happened, and wasn’t sure what was going on.
State police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a man who called the Warren Police Department two months ago threatening to kill a state trooper.
It happened on February 8th. A man called Warren police saying that a Rhode Island trooper would be assassinated within the next 72 hours. The caller was upset that police did not lodge criminal charges against the driver of a vehicle involved in an accident that claimed the life of a woman and her unborn child.
The call originated from a pay phone in Central Falls.
