Newly Released Photo Shows Tsarnaev Behind Youngest Marathon Victim

A newly released photo submitted into evidence Monday in the Boston Marathon bombing trial shows Dzhokhar Tsarnaaev standing behind the Richard family, including 8-year-old Martin Richard, the youngest victim, on Boylston Street before the blasts.

Tsarnaev can be seen directly behind the tree in the center of the photo. Martin Richard is in the center-front of the photo, standing on the fence in a black jacket, while his father, Bill Richard, looks on over his right shoulder.

In the trial on Monday, jurors were shown graphic photos of Martin Richard’s autopsy and heard testimony from the medical examiner who performed the autopsy. Multiple jurors were brought to tears.

The government then rested its case, after 15 days of testimony, and Tsarnaev’s defense began calling witnesses.
