Graphic Post-Mortem Picture of Boston Marathon Bomb Suspect
We’ve all been following the unfolding events of the search for the 2nd suspect in the bombing at the Boston Marathon. My boss made the apropos statement that it was like watching a bad “Die Hard” movie. It seems that every media outlet is trying to find any way it can to cover this fluid situation. But now someone has leaked some very graphic post-mortem pictures of the marathon bombing victim that was shot and killed today. The photo shows Tamerlan Tsarnaev lying on a table, naked from the hip up, and very dead. The picture is believed to have been taken at Boston’s Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. They are dening responsibility for the leaked photo. The Smoking Gun has the picture here: http://www.thesmokinggun.com/buster. But let me warn you, it is graphic.
I don’t know how much coverage of this event is too much. What do you think? Does the public need access to these types of pictures?
