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 know there were guns and various types of explosive devices, but did someone have a machete too? That is a really deep cut, it looks like it completely penetrated the chest wall.

Seems odd that he has what looks to be facial hair - enough to look like a beard but the pics from the marathon that the FBI have released shows him clean shaven. How could he grow his facial hair that quickly?

On behalf of all the conservative, pro - 2nd Amendment white males between the ages 18 to 59, I would just like to say we are still waiting for our apology from MSNBC, CNN, NBC, ABC and CBS.

I think we need to let all the muslims live in one country and rest of us have the rest of the world. They don't want peace.

Just My Opinion    

You know these people don't care about human life. His own brother backed over his dying body in the road. No respect for ANYONE. Wow! This is what you call having a black heart. I don't understand some people. They hate the USA, but want to live here.
If they hate us, and don't like our way of life, stay in your own damn country. You don't see us going over to your country setting off bombs, just for the hell of it, or we don't like your way of living. If we do bomb your country, it is in self defense only.
