After Murphy released photos showing a bloodied Tsarnaev surrendering in a backyard in Watertown, Mass., he was put on a desk job. He retired from the State Police soon after. Murphy claims he released the photos in responses to the controversial Rolling Stone cover showing Tsarnaev.
His release of the photos was supported by many. “There must be a hundred letters and cards,” Murphy said. “My life has changed ever since, for better or worse.”
