Here is a photo of the now deceased Tamerlan Tsarnaev. Is this photo a fake? Certainly anything is possible. It’s all over the place on Mediate or Smoking Gun or Reddit, etc. You can draw your own conclusions. It is important to view it, however, due to the claim of how Mr. Tsarnaev met his demise.
The police chief, Edward Deveau, describes how cops nearly apprehended the older suspect, and were placing handcuffs on him in the middle of the street Thursday night, when the younger suspect came at officers in a carjacked SUV. The cops were able “to dive out of the way,” and the younger suspect then continued to drive directly over his brother and dragging him through the street. That’s how the older suspect died, according to the police chief.
This eyewitness account disputes that statement.
Everyone seems to be in agreement that Tsarnaev was run over by a car. Was it a police SUV or did Tamerlan’s brother run him over? If I understand this correctly, Tamerlan was outside the vehicle being cuffed and the police allowed his brother to remain in the vehicle so that he could run him over and get away leading to the manhunt that terminated at the boat? Or is the lady eyewitness correct in that the police ran him down and he died on the scene and not later at the hospital as the police claim?
