For 90 minutes last Thursday night, a 26-year-old entrepreneur was trapped in his own car with the two suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing.

What happened during that period of time was just one of the many mysteries in the aftermath of the marathon attack.

But now, we’ve heard for the first time from the carjack victim himself. He gave his harrowing account to Boston Globe reporter Eric Moskowitz.

We also speak with Boston Globe columnist Kevin Cullen about his detailed account of the search, from the perspective of police.
