Just as if you were watching your favorite action movie, shocking images of Boston Bomber #2 have been revealed. Boston Mag published 48 additional photos taken by Sgt. Sean Murphy, who is a 25-year veteran, released the photos to the magazine in July in response to the suspect, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, gracing the cover of Rolling Stone!
Many split opinions about the younger bomber appearing in the cover that was once reserved to icons and now glamorizes Tsarnaev. But getting back to the images; we can clearly see a bloodied Tsarnaev attempting to emerge from the inside of a boat in a Watertown, Mass., backyard on April 19.
In the first bash of images we can see the intense man hunt it was conducted by Boston police, FBI and all authorities involved. We remember how Tsarnaev escaped from police following a shootout in the Boston suburb of Watertown that day, during which he ran over his brother and alleged co-conspirator, Tamerlan Tsarnaev.
In the rest we can see how Tsarnaev appears disoriented in the photos and illuminated by a bright floodlight. He is seen raising his hands and straddling the side of the boat, which is bloodstained. A team of heavily-armed officers is seen moving toward the boat and arresting the suspect on a patch of grass.
He is ultimately arrested and taken to the hospital.
The 20-year-old has pleaded not guilty in connection with the April 15 bombing that killed three and injured 260. He’s also accused of killing Massachusetts Institute of Technology police officer Sean Collier while on the run three days later.
Stunning images indeed.
