Here's The Guy Charged With Leaving Bags At Boston Marathon Finish Line

This is the 25-year-old Boston man who allegedly left two backpacks at the Boston Marathon finish line Tuesday night and got himself arrested for his troubles. His name is Kevin Edson, though he's now apparently going by Kayvon. He is, or was, a student at Massachusetts College of Art and Design.

Earlier tonight, Barstool found Edson's Facebook page, which has his name listed as "Kayvon Edson." (Alysha Palumbo of NECN was the first to ID him as "Kevin Edson.") Edson's Facebook header is a photo of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, along with some text:


Some other photos:


Edson seems to be involved in performance art, posting videos on a YouTube channel called "Nat Sel," short for Natural Selection.

Here's a photo of a post from, the website advertised on Edson's YouTube channel. There was a post published today, devoted to Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. One of the photos was on Edson's Facebook page. (h/t fdsafds664333)
