LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – A Tamerlan Tsarnaev death photo leaked online on Reddit has prompted an investigation. The Tamerlan Tsarnaev death image on Reddit.com is real, claims reports. Investigators have yet to confirm the same officially. Reddit.com however has been the source of several accurate and breaking stories about the Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and Tamerlan Tzarnaev (Facebook account like photos below) case since yesterday,.
Yesterday Reddit.com was one of the first locations to find a David Green photo of suspect 2 in high definition. But today, it’s Tamerlan Tsarnaev death picture. The Tamerlan Tsarnaev death image shows the 26 year old photographed early this morning after suffering fatal injures. The photo is significant because officials have not clarified Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s cause of death.
Last night, when the Watertown, MA shooting erupted, few news agencies were on the scene at the time, let alone reporting. But also absent was significant police presence. Officials confirmed that nominal federal presence existed during the shootout.
As the Watertown shooting continued, explosions went off. Tamerlan was reportedly throwing home made bombs out of a Mercedes SUV at police. Unconfirmed reports claim that the shooting by the brothers was paramilitary in style. That gunfire is the only indication so far since that the brothers may not have acted alone, and may have had international training.
As the violence settled, police scanners picked up officers saying that the suspect 2 was in custody. They had mistaken Tamerlan, however, for his brother.
Moreover, initial news reports claimed that Tamerlan died from explosives and gunshot wounds. But local news disputes the same. They claim that he died after his brother drove over him fleeing the scene in the SUV. The Tamerlan Tsarnaev death image shows an injury in his rib cage, his eyes and mouth open. The source of the Tamerlan Tsarnaev death picture remains under investigation.
Less than five hours after Tamerlan was pictured as “suspect 1” by FBI images, he and his brother robbed a 7-11. They then proceeded to fatally shoot an MIT officer. The officer did not approach them but was sitting in his car. They then hijacked one car, then hijacked the Mercedes SUV, then proceeded to Watertown. Since then, suspect 2 remains at large. He is armed and dangerous and is believed in Watertown.
