    Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev sustained more than just a few scratches before his dramatic capture, according to court documents. The papers, which were released on Monday, describe multiple injuries, including wounds from a bullet that struck him in the mouth and exited from the left side of his face, fracturing his skull and damaging his pharynx, middle ear, and a cervical vertebra. Tsarnaev also sustained multiple bullet wounds to his extremities, including his left hand. Stephen Ray Odom, a trauma surgeon, said during a federal court hearing that none of Tsarnaev’s wounds were life-threatening and that he had been taking Dilaudid, a powerful painkiller.
