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.

Just close your eyes and envision the little eight year old boy, being exploded all to hell, then open them up and look at this picture. You will be glad to see it and only hope that he lived , just long enough, to see the vision of the liitle eight year old boy, that he murdered, before he takes his last breath...Doesn't bother me , one bit, to look at it!

If you are having a problem viewing this, close your eyes and imagine the little eight year old boy, that this person , blew up. Open your eyes and now view this photo. Doesn't bother me a bit. Obama , wouldn't even give the American Citizens ,, the right to view the terroist leader, Osama Bin Laden , the right to determine if they wanted to view his photo, after he was assassinated. Yet, we got to view the photos of our American sisters and brothers, jumping out of windows, etc., while being blown up, etc. Obama , wanted to show Bin Ladins family respect. Oh, that's right, As Americans, he didn't care about showing us , respect. Obama proudly tauts the fact , that he is muslim.... He uses his middle name Hussein, in his presidential acceptance speech....

You wonder why the people in the middle east hate us. All we do is slander them; I had a friend on Facebook for God's sake that flipping rips on blacks and Muslims ALL DAY LONG! It gets sickening, and what's worse, she's got an answer to everything. It's sad what happened to those people, but we're no better than them if we want them tortured and maimed. Even if they did do it, they deserve to suffer by guilt, not the easy route which is death; one of the brothers already got that route. The violence is getting worse in this country, I expect mass chaos in the near future.

I think the photo is authentic. It looks like his face is burned - I don't think it's blood, unless it's blood that has settled under the skin, like he was face-down when he died. Definitely don't see how he could have survived long enough for "doctors to administer lifesaving attempts for 15 minutes" with his chest blown open like that. Glad he's gone.
