EXCLUSIVE

0419-boston-suspect-Tamerlan-Tsarnaev-gettyA gruesome death photo of the Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev has surfaced online ... and law enforcement sources tell TMZ it's 100% authentic.

The photo first appeared on Reddit moments ago ... posted by someone who claims the photo was obtained by a "friend" who works downtown.

The picture shows the lifeless corpse of 26-year-old Tamerlan laying on a table.

The body has multiple bullet wounds ... as well as a gigantic gash along his chest rib cage area.

The body is covered in blood ... especially in the facial region.

In the death photo, Tamerlan's mouth and eyes are open wide.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... the photo is authentic. One source tells us officials are investigating to find out who leaked the picture.

Tamerlan was killed in a shootout with police in Watertown, Massachusetts early this morning. His 19-year-old brother Dzhokhar is on the run.

Both are suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing that killed 3 people and injured nearly 200 more.

The last thing we need is Chechen Muslims with a beef with the USA. They are Sunnis, like the ones trying to overthrow Syria. They will fight and brutally if they think they have a cause. They can call up the Sunni network and get them all hopping mad, all the ones training in Yemen and elsewhere for their grand jihad.


Russians have trouble controlling them and they are Russian. Do you think we need that trouble here?

They're not russians they are middle easterners from the Caucasus. A Chechen with a Slavicized spelling of their name does not make a Russian. Russians hate Chechens too.

I checked out the picture. It looks like the "Black hat" suspect. But I was expecting MORE black, burned areas around the big gash. Surprised that there wasn't, I would think there would be, even through clothing. Just saying. They may have cleaned up the area, I guess.
