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.

I am apalled at the "Eye for an eye" mentality of the people. No wonder the world is where it is.
I for one would preffer the brother infront of a judge and find out WHY he did it.
Killing them on a manhunt doesn't give any answers. All it does is remove the "symptom" but not find out the reason.

I have no need to see the photo as I don't take pleasure in seeing anyone's death. But, after all he did to such innocent people, karma finally caught up to him.

I bet the police released it hoping that it would spread and maybe the brother would see it and think twice about engaging in a shoot out and turn himself in.

if you want to see it go to reddit but be forewarned it's extremely graphic. The giant gash along his side is from a thoracotomy incision when the doctors attempted to get to the heart to save his life.

I'd like to see the photo, especially if it gets the image of tanning mom in a bikini out of my head!
