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.

Besides beign shot numerous times. Police report that his brother also ran him over when he backed up the stolen vehicle in an attempt to escape. His brother laid in the street, had been shot and fell to the ground when his brother backed over him....showing us all that a Mercedes SUV is good for something!

THEY'RE BOTH NOTHING BUT COWARDS!

NO    

And this is exactly why the world is the way that it is. Because people don't take the pain of others seriously. This is disappointingly wrong and inappropriate. This sort of reaction is deplorable. This man is dead. Isn't that enough for everyone? Or do we have to terrorize his family and friends in retaliation?
I am just as disgusted with the people taking pleasure in this as I am the bombers themselves. Absolute s*** of humanity. All you are proving is that there is no good in us - that all we do is fight pain with pain, gore with gore.
Maybe someday we will become a better species.

Can not remember if MA has death penalty. If it does, Go ahead and capture. If not, Make him like his brother!!

It's postmortem lividity (livor Mortis) not blood. Starts 3 hours after death hits maximum 6-12 hours after death.

There is something wrong with this picture, it doesn't match the story the cops told. In everything about the story of these brothers doesn't smell right. What about that Saudi student the FBI first questioned? The very same day obama secretly met with the Saudi Ambassador and immediately the student is set for deportation and these blamed. Their backpacks don't look as if they were carrying pressure cookers. I don't think we are being told the truth, something stinks.

Considering families are without their loved ones, many are without their limbs....but this time last week they were preparing to run an marathon, I have NO sympathy for this monster!! Our country allowed this mans family into our country. We gave them advantages that many of our own are not allowed, so don't talk about deplorable!! What is deplorable is when these bombers looked a man in the eyes, sat down a backpack on the ground, walked away and killed 3 people, one an 8 year old child. AND, blew both of a mans legs off.... The same man whose eyes he looked into! And you say there is no good in us! So if you don't like "our", go where these murderers are from!! Perhaps you will be happier there!

So sad to see. What is even more sad is to think about what pushed them to do so much destruction.

I want to frame it! Rot in hell you evil bastard! The media is making like his little bro is an angel and it makes me wanna puke! Damn sympathizers! What is it with people wanting to sympathize with evil? What's it called? Like when kidnap victims fall in love with their captors? The little brother bomber is not an angel! Funny how they're demonizing the dead brother and going on and on about how sweet the living brother is. Makes me sick! The dead one can't defend himself. Even reporters tone of voice changes when they talk about them. They get all sweet sounding when talking about the younger brother then get all serious sounding when talking about the dead one...

Good. Little bro was caught and shot up but is in the hospital. His life is worth nothing now. He has a million people who want to have at him now here in Boston... and he "got some splainin' to do!"

TMZ, you need a better editor. Third paragraph, it should read " ... Tamerlan lying on a table". Not "laying".
