State police Sgt. Sean Murphy who released striking photos of the capture of the surviving suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings faces a hearing to determine if he will be suspended until an internal investigation is complete. Massachusetts State Police spokesman David Procopio said the agency didn't authorize Sgt. Murphy to release the photos to Boston Magazine and won't release them to other media.
In response to Rolling Stone putting accused Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (JO-HAR CZAR-NYE-EV) on its upcoming cover, Boston magazine published a series of new, haunting images of Tsarnaev's capture on its website. The images, taken by Massachusetts State Police Sgt. Sean Murphy, ran under the title "The Real Face of Terror."
Rolling Stone triggered outrage, disgust and threats of boycotts with a cover of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev that some readers said gave him a celebrity treatment and a glamorized look.
