Genius at work...

Is it just me or did our IT genius place the QR code on the bomb. The bomb that explodes and would almost certainly destroy anything on it... like, say, a QR code? Looks to me like the only reason we know there was a QR code is because the cops aren't idiots. The same can't necessarily be said about the bomber... Who may or may not know about MAC addresses (probably doesn't know much... #justsaying).

Regardless, if they can track the MAC address (spoofed or not, phone destroyed or not) through old access logs to anywhere with CC-TV footage...
