The FBI said in a statement Wednesday that no arrest has been made, “contrary to widespread reporting,” tied to this week’s Boston Marathon attack.

Earlier Wednesday morning, CNN reported they had confirmation from official sources a suspect had been arrested.

The network is now saying Boston Police and the Justice Department both deny reports that anyone was arrested.
