Lives upended in crime scene

James Brennan, an employee of Sugar Heaven, a candy store at 669 Boylston St., walked inside the largest crime scene in the history of Boston on Wednesday to help authorities in their search for the person or persons who set off bombs at the Boston Marathon finish line.

He walked back out between the steel barriers, which have walled off the Copley Square neighborhood while police search for forensic evidence, at Newbury and Exeter streets at 2:30 p.m.
