Boston bombing jury sees gory photos of blast victims
By Scott Malone BOSTON (Reuters) - The jury in the Boston Marathon bombing trial heard graphic testimony and saw autopsy photos of the second of the three people killed in the April 15, 2013 attack. Shrapnel from one of the homemade pressure cooker bombs set off by a pair of ethnic Chechen brothers punched through Chinese exchange student Lingzi Lu's legs, causing the 23-year old to bleed to death within minutes, Boston medical examiner Katherine Lindstrom testified on Monday. "Her injuries were caused by debris hitting her body and going through her body," Boston medical examiner Katherine Lindstrom said. "They would have been very painful." Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 21, is charged with the bombing attack that also injured 264 people, as well as shooting Massachusetts Institute of Technology police officer Sean Collier dead three days later as he and his older brother prepared to flee the city.
