New Image Reveals Message Boston Bomber Scrawled Before Arrest

On Thursday morning, ABC News revealed a new image featuring the last communication from alleged Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev before he was arrested almost one year ago.

ABC News, which confirmed the authenticity of the image with Boston and Massachusetts law enforcement officials, partially transcribed the writing as:

“The U.S. government is killing our innocent civilians, but most of you already know that… I can’t stand to see such [bullet hole] go unpunished. We Muslims are one body. You kill one of us, you hurt [bullet hole] us all.”

It was unclear whether the red stains were paint or blood, ABC News reported.

Tsarnaev reportedly scrawled the message on the side of the boat in which he was hiding from authorities; he was discovered hours later, bleeding from a gunshot wound to the neck, after the city of Boston had gone on a lockdown.
