The search for evidence in the Boston Marathon bombings sent white-suited investigators combing through the garbage at a landfill in New Bedford, Mass., on Thursday as they hunted for a laptop computer belonging to one of the suspects, a law enforcement official said.

Investigators have been searching for several days for the laptop that they believe belonged to one of the two brothers suspected of setting off the bombs, the New York Times said, citing several law enforcement officials said.

They believe that the computer may have been thrown out, and they searched the Crapo Hill Landfill in New Bedford, near the University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth, where Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, was a student.
