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.

That gaping chest wound was obviously an attempt to stop internal bleeding by medical personnel. You can see betadine (an anti-bacterial solution that looks yellowish), around the incision area. You can also see IV sites and leads. The incision is quite large so it seems it was a last-minute desperate attempt to stop his bleeding out into the chest cavity. You know they wanted him alive to find out anything they could.

Good to see that maybe his bomb is what killed him. If the photo is real, that shrapnel tore a huge hole in his ribcage.

I feel bad for the parents of the boys who did this. They were once little babies in their arms. Posting the picture online is awful. Yes what his children did was reprehensible, but for him to see his child like this?? There is no compassion anymore in the human race. Thats the downfall of humanity!

looks weird. how many people shot? 2 or 3 hits. i'd say sniper shot him in the face. that side shot is random. pretty huge caliber. and it looks amateurish. maybe another one in the right shoulder. the blood distribution looks odd. can't be all from the face. that gash is huge. what did cut thru that ribs. it looks unreal. seriously wtf.
