There has been speculation, mostly kicked off by Reddit that missing Ivy League student Sunil Tripathi could be involved in the Boston bombing. He went missing last month without a trace. The FBI became involved in the case, even though it was a presumed suicide.Tripathi was a philosophy major at Brown University, not far from Boston, where the search expanded to. His father is a rich software engineer.
