Photos released of Boston bombing suspect capture

A police photographer, furious with a Rolling Stone magazine cover photo he says glamorises the surviving Boston Marathon suspect, has released gritty images from the nightDzhokhar Tsarnaev was captured.

The photos released to Boston Magazine on Thursday by Massachusetts State Police tactical photographer Sgt. Sean Murphy show a bloody, disheveled Tsarnaev with the red dot of a sniper’s rifle laser sight on his forehead. Murphy said in a statement to the magazine that Tsarnaev is evil and his photos show the ‘real Boston bomber, not someone fluffed and buffed for the cover of Rolling Stone magazine.’

The music magazine hits the shelves this week, and some retailers have said they won’t sell it. The newly released photos were taken when Tsarnaev was captured April 19, bleeding and hiding in a boat in a suburban backyard. The 15 April bombing near the finish line of the most famous marathon in the country killed three people and injured more than 260.

A police officer was allegedly killed 18 April by Tsarnaev and his brother, Tamerlan, who died following a shootout with police later that evening.
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, an ethnic Chechen who came to the US as a child, pleaded not guilty.
