SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (WJBK) -

The explosions at the Boston Marathon left two dead and more than 80 injured. Experts say this appears to be a well-thought out, coordinated attack because the blasts appear timed to go off within seconds of one another.

The explosives could have been detonated by a cell phone, a "typical detonation device," says local security expert Ned Timmons, President of L.S.S. Consulting in Commerce Township. He says it's unlikely this was the work of just one person, and encourages anyone with a tip -- even a small one -- to contact police.
