Three contract workers found the backpack about a half-hour prior to the start of the parade and a police bomb squad neutralized the device.

While an FBI official says the bomb was functional and could have caused multiple casualties, FBI Special Agent Frank Harrill says the details of the nature of the bomb aren’t being released.

There were no casualities or injuries. A $20,000.00 reward is now being offered for information in the case.
