Documents released Monday confirm that accused Boston Bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev had what was described as “multiple gunshot wounds, the most severe of which appears to have entered through the left side inside of his mouth and exited the left face, lower face,”
That was just one of several wounds described by Dr. Stephen Ray Odom, a trauma surgeon who treated Tsarnaev after his capture.
He went on telling about “a high-powered injury that has resulted in skull-base fracture, with injuries to the middle ear, the skull base, his C1 vertebrae as well as injury to the pharynx, mouth."
The injuries explain more about why Tsarnaev was so bloody when emerged from the boat he had been hiding in.
Tsarnaev is charged with the Boston Marathon Bombings that killed three people and injured 260 more.
Tsarnaev and his dead brother Tamerlan are also accused of killing MIT police Officer Sean Collier.
