A photo has been making rounds on Reddit claiming to be the death photo of Suspect No. 1 in the Boston Marathon bombings.
The post -- titled "Autopsy pic of Tamerlan Tsarnaev (NSFW)" -- links to the (alleged) photo of the dead body of 29-year-old Tamerlan Tsarnaev. The image displays a bloody and naked body that has already undergone an autopsy with "Suspect 1" written above the picture.
The image, according to Boston.com, is being circulated amongst law enforcement officials. An official revealed that the image is being used "to revel" in his death and seeing the photo is "cathartic" for authorities.
"Mission accomplished. We're halfway there. Justice is served," said the official to Boston.com.
The older Tsarnaev brother was declared dead in Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center at 1:35 a.m. after a shootout with the police. The younger brother, Dzhokar Tsarnaev, is still at large and Boston authorities are currently conducting a manhunt to capture the suspect.
