(Warning: Above video shows graphic images of Ibragim Todashev's body after he was allegedly killed by FBI).

 First it was his friends who spoke out. Now, Ibragim Todashev's father has spoken. Abdulbaki Todashev showed the media several alleged images of his son's corpse at a press conference in Moscow on Thursday, reports Al Jazeera. Watch the video above, courtesy of Behold Media (WARNING: Grotesque images in video--Behold Media is not affilated with ILLUME).

The photos were reportedly taken by Ibragim Todashev's friend, Khusen Taramov, who was also present for the early part of the FBI questioning where Todashev was killed.

The photos show six gunshot wounds on his torso and in the back of his head. While the photos haven't been authenticated by ILLUME or its sources, they are consistent with information related to ILLUME by Hassan Shibly, the executive director of the Council of American Islamic Relations in Tampa. In a phone call on May 30, Shibly told ILLUME that CAIR had reliable sources showing that Todashev was shot once in the head and several times near the heart.

Shibly also indicated that while CAIR wasn't suing the FBI or making any accusations, they did want a probe into what really happened.

This sentiment was echoed thousands of miles away, in Russia, by the senior Todashev.

"My son didn't have any weapons," says Todashev, as reported by Al Jazeera.

"But my son didn't have a gun, didn't have a knife. Supposedly there's information that he went to the kitchen and took a knife and threw himself on it," said Todashev.

Ibragim Todashev was originally from Chechnya, which is officially a part of Russia. He was not implicated in the Boston Bombings but was being questioned on an unrelated incident, involving a triple murder. Todashev allegedly knew Boston Boming suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev, although reports on their friendship indicate a thin link between the two.
