Boston Suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev Was Competitive, Amateur Boxer

A photo of the first, and now deceased suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing -- Tamerlan Tsarnaev -- has emerged on the Internet via the popular social sharing site Reddit. The image was posted by user nfieldflyer on Friday, under the title “Suspect #1 ... in the morgue. NSFW.”

nfieldflyer claims the photo was obtained by a "friend" who works downtown. Typical for images posted to reddit, image itself is being hosted on imgur.

We will not be posting the photo directly here, but it can be viewed here (note: extremely graphic and may be upsetting to many).

As far as the image's authenticity, law enforcement sources have confirmed toTMZ that the image is real. One source told the site that authorities are investigating to determine who leaked the photo.

At one point, the image even managed to break through and reach the front page of reddit, but apparently was pushed off.

For those who want details, but do not want to view the image, the picture shows the corpse of the 26-year-old terrorist, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, lying on what appears to be a morgue table.

Mutiple bullet wounds can be seen, as well as a large gash along the left side of his chest in the area of his rib cage. That could be where the IED exploded (there have been reports that Tsarnaev set off an IED).

The body is covered in blood, particularly on his face. His mouth and both eyes are wide open.

Tamerlan Tsarnaev was killed in a shootout with police in Watertown, Mass. early Friday morning. His 19-year-old brother Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is still on the run.
