It is one of the most haunting pictures to emerge from the Boston bombings. That of the suspected Boston bomber lurking behind the innocent child that would go on to lose their life for unexplainable reasons.

In the image, the suspect, today named as 19-year-old Dzhokhar A Tsarnaev, is seen in the background as eight-year-old Martin Richard stands waiting to cheer his dad as he crosses the finishing line of the marathon.
