$2 million raised for Boston victims as Terrorista #1 license plate lands online

$2 million raised for Boston victims as Terrorista #1 license plate lands online, Almost one full week has passed since the horrific Boston Marathon bombings that rocked the world while leaving four people dead and more than 170 injured. A lot has happened since that fateful day, and new information is being revealed all the time. On Sunday, April 21, 2013, it was revealed by the Inquisitr that over $2 million has been raised for Boston victims due to crowd-funding and the good hearts of people.

Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick and Boston Mayor Thomas Menino announced the official fundraising organization on Tuesday as "The One Fund Boston." In just six days, more than $2 million has been raised for Boston victims.

Things got a nice start though with a $1 million starter donation from John Hancock.

Organizers of the London Marathon have donated £2 per runner and that is expected to reach a total of close to $100,000.

Some other news reveals more details about the possible intentions of suspect number two, Dzhokar Tsarnaev. The NY Post revealed news on Sunday that a pic had been found tweeted by Tsarnaev showing a BMW 330XI with a UMass Dartmouth personal plate saying "Terrorista #1."

The image was on the suspect's Twitter account with a caption saying "Place your bets." The BMW with the Terrorista #1 plate was lined up next to a Chevrolet as if they were about to race.

Two of Dzhokar's friends from the school were arrested on Saturday afternoon by federal officials for immigration violations. Neighbors have said that the two students, identified as Azamat and Dias (only first names), are said to rent or lease the car.

They are facing deportation.
