Indications NYPD knows who Times Square bomber is . . .

Quickly following up on evidence left in the vehicle that failed to completely detonate in Times Square Saturday night, law enforcement officials have narrowed their search to a man from Connecticut:
This "person of interest" bought the 1993 Nissan Pathfinder that was abandoned with the engine running - and with primitive, but potentially deadly payload in the rear - just two weeks ago, law enforcement and police sources told The Daily News.

Investigators aren't certain whether he is the same man who drove the rolling bomb to the Crossroads of the World, but he has not been seen by his girlfriend - and has not shown up at his home or job - since the frightening incident on Saturday night.

Detectives from the NYPD and FBI identified the SUV owner after tracking down the registration of the previous owner, who told investigators he'd sold the vehicle.

The mystery man met the seller through and paid $1,800 cash for the Pathfinder, the Daily News has learned.
I suspect we'll have some real answers about this attack before too much longer.
