It's been a little more than 24 hours since Dzhokar Tsarnaev was found hiding in a Watertown, Massachusetts, boat. Police used a robot to pull the tarp off the boat. Dramatic thermal imaging has since been released, showing the suspect lying in the middle of the boat.

The tense manhunt left Boston on lockdown as police searched for Dzhokar. His older brother and fellow suspect, 26-year-old Tamerlan Tsarnaev, was killed in an overnight shootout Thursday. Authorities sought the brothers based on photos from Monday's marathon. The brothers are suspected of placing bombs at the Boston Marathon and killing a police officer.

Although the motive is not yet known, many people are eager to talk to the youngest brother. Currently, Dzhokar is hospitalized with a throat injury and unable to talk to authorities.

Political science professor Daniel Masters helped us break down how the authorities found the suspect and what may happen next.
