Tuesday night, a barefoot, black-veiled figure dropped off two backpacks near the Boston Marathon finish line. The backpacks contained pressure cookers filled with confetti. Authorities detonated both in controlled explosions. No one was injured.

The alleged perpetrator of the hoax, one year to the day after the Tsarneav brothers detonated real bombs that killed three and injured hundreds, turns out to be Kevin “Kayvon” Edson, 25.

Mediaite picks up the bizarre story from there.

NECN identified the bomber as 25-year-old Bostonian Kevin “Kayvon” Edson, the founder of a “eco-aware and ethical” fashion company called Natural Selection. Edson was discovered yesterday running barefoot on Boylston Avenue, wearing a black mesh veil and shouting “Boston Strong” over and over again, before dropping two backpack(s), one containing a rice cooker filled with confetti, at the Marathon finish line. (The backpacks were eventually detonated.)

“I really need exposure,” Edson said in a video bio for his company bearing his name, in which he also claimed that that he was bipolar. “I really need to build this world that I’ve already started creating.”

He earlier described himself as a “fashion designer, entrepreneur, performance artist, mental patient, blogger bloggerist, a jailbird, a college dropout, and a drag queen.”

Edson posted this on his Facebook page Tuesday.



Edson is going to get exposure…to lawyers, courtrooms, and prison. He may not have hurt anyone, but his actions caused real terror.

Just this once.

I promise I won't ask again.

Can we forego the usual legal proceedings and just throw this idiot in a dumpster?

Since nobody was actually hurt, I don't even care if he crawls out again. Just pick one behind any Asian restaurant or fish place, make sure it's about half full, toss him in head first, and call it good.

Oh, and make him pay restitution for the money spent on law enforcement activities.

I'm not sure a dumpster is the best idea.

He wants exposure... just drop him off in his skivvies in the middle of nowhere. It's too bad it's April, I guess... where's a Polar Vortex when you need one?

Newest entrant in "really bad decisions." I really doubt the authorities are going to go easy on him. And I don't blame them.
