Authorities investigating the attack have released information suggesting the person in the video is wearing a costume, but have given no further details except to say that there was evidence recovered in a nearby shopping mall that supports this conclusion. While the suspects true identity is unknown they do believe that he or she is still in the State of Maine and may possibly be in or near the vicinity of Asphyxiation Point. Local authorities on the island have been notified.
At this early stage of the investigation not many details are available. State and local police are searching for the person responsible, but have made no statements as to whom they believe the suspect to be at this time. There is also no known motive for the attack, however; the possibility of this being an accidental explosion has been ruled out.
