Alleged photos of the dead body of suspected Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev have begun to circulate around the internet. Liveleak posted them today with a claim that “law enforcement sources tell TMZ it’s 100% authentic.” Tamerlan, 26, was killed in a shootout with police early this morning. His brother Dzhokhar, 19, is still at large.
The photos are extremely graphic and show the suspect displayed on an autopsy table with multiple gunshot wounds and a vicious gash along his left ribcage (which may be due to surgical efforts after the shooting). His face appears to be entirely covered in blood.
