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 doubt that his brother ran over him. Then he would be crushed, not have his chest slashed open. He was riddled with bullets but he brother was fine . . . I don't see how. Then what happened to the lead that they had him face down on the ground in a turquoise shirt while the man whose car was stolen was sitting nude inside it? Did they just take him off somewhere and shoot and knife him? Why was his mouth and his eyes wide open? Was he completely surprised?


This is the craziest story. It is like insane demons are running the show.

What is going on here? There was NO trial, NO finished judicial inquiry, NO indictment... ALL that it needs to pronounce somebody guilty AND to execute him at once is media hype, pictures and cops.
This has definitely NOTHING to do with a nation of law nor with democracy.

Imagine this happens to you AND YOU alone know that you are NOT guilty. It seems that since 911, that the law can be ignored on demand by the authorities, they just have to declare you as terrorist!

In this context, the terror is effective in changing and destroying a democratic society step by step.

With every case, the public excepts such a procedure by the authorities, the public gets more used to it. And i am afraid THAT THIS EXACTLY what they want. In ten years or so, people who are just declared as public enemy can be killed arbitrary by the authorities. Maybe its really a terrorist, maybe its just you fighting against a new atomic plant or against you firing...

Just reposting how body condition was explained previously: Cut is side is thoracotomy, Red on face/neck could be “traumatic asphyxia”.
What irony if suspect 2 ran over his brother while he was still alive and accelerated his demise.

Saw the pic, and I don't believe that is the guy. If the cops shot him and ran him over, why would he have an IV line in his right forearm, and patches from a heart monitor stuck to his chest? This looks like an autopsy pic of someone they harvested a heart out of.
