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.

They were Born Russian Citizens so They are Russians The same way when a Person is Born in Puerto Rico is a USA Citizen even though Puerto Rico is NOT a USA State But it is a USA Territory. ------- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chechnya -------------- To Further Answer You, i was Born in The Canary Islands and i am a SPAIN Citizen even though The Canary Islands is only a Territory Of SPAIN. ------ The Same goes for CHECHENS.------ They are RUSSIAN Citizens By Birth...

Lets find the cell and origin of this filth and let them all know just how many smart bombs we as free Americans can make and deliver to the hills of Pakistan and Afghanistan. Let no Terrorist Muslim hiding in his/her sand cave be safe. Kill everything that wiggles.

They ought to put the little fvcker on public display just like the terrorists he killed for do. I guess he was surprised when he was welcomed to his "Allah's" house by the devil. I guess he figured it out by now. Good riddance to bad rubbish.

I believe people like him shouldn't be killed but tortured for life to learn a valuable lesson.

Saw it - the gash in the left chest area is where the docs cracked him open to drain fluid and possibly during efforts to restart his heart.

Definitely a gruesome picture. I hope suspect #2 surrenders or is captured alive but I highly doubt it.

He looks great dead. F-ing dirtball. The slash in his chest could be when his brother ran him over last night, though he was likely already dead. Read that little tidbit this morning. Either/or, in a hurry to save your azz you run over your dead brother? Tells you all you need to know.
