New Photos Show Boston Marathon Bombing Suspect’s Surrender
BOSTON (CBSNewYork) — Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was the subject of a manhunt that captivated the nation for days, and now, newly-released pictures have documented his final moments of freedom.
As CBS 2’s Alice Gainer reported Tuesday night, Boston Magazine has published more photos taken by Massachusetts State Police Sgt. Sean Murphy, who was punished for giving his pictures to the magazine without permission.
The photos show a bloodied Tsarnaev emerging from a boat sitting in a Watertown, Mass., homeowner’s backyard. Badly wounded, he slumps on the torn boat cover.
He pulls up his shirt, showing he has no explosives or other weapons. He then drops, as heavily-armed troopers move in and take him down.
Another photo shows Boston Mayor Thomas Menino discussing the manhunt for Tsarnaev with the FBI, while another still shows Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis staying in communication with the field.
Murphy gave the images to Boston Magazine, as a protest against a cover photo in Rolling Stone magazine that he felt glorified Tsarnaev.
