Images released of Boston bombing suspect capture

New images of the Boston Marathon bombing suspect show him bloody and dishevelled with the red dot of a sniper's rifle laser sight on his forehead after police found him hiding in a boat.

The pictures were taken by Massachusetts State Police tactical photographer Sergeant Sean Murphy of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev on April 19 after he was captured, four days after the bombing.

He released the images to show the "real Boston bomber, not someone fluffed and buffed for the cover of Rolling Stone magazine."
