Interestingly a check of the SS Index shows no match with 2 of the alias used by him; however a check of his original name Edward Snyder and birth date of 1894 show an only one Edward Snyder "born 1894 in Ohio" who died August 1973. The only difference is that the missing Sands birthdate is given as that April 4, 1894 and the SSI show birthdate of April 15, 1894. Coincidence?:waitasec::confused:

Also have my own theories on Taylor death:
1) Mary Miles Minter goes to Taylor house with .38 pistol-purpose unknown.
Taylor takes pistol from her and places it in his pocket-or does she still carry it?. Taylor and Minter embrace-pistol goes off and kills Taylor;
Minter flees. Margaret Gibson may have come on the scene and was the unknown person seen fleeing the house
Minter's mother Charlotte Shelby goes to Taylor's House and retrieves pistol.
This could explain allegedly odd circumstances of Taylor's wound-the bullet went upward through his vest and Shirt but not his coat; that a blond hear was found on his coat {It seems Minter and Gibson had light {blond{?} hair} ; that Minter's mother Charlotte Shelby was involved in covering up evidence of Minter involvement with Taylor.
2) Another possibility is that it was Taylor and Margaret Gibson who embraced when the pistol went off and that Minter may or may not have been on the scene of the crime.
As the old saying went regarding two suspects in a murder case-against which evidence pointed to either one-but not both-as the suspect-If One didn't do it the other one did!:confused::confused:

Thank you for this:blowkiss: Isn't there also a thread in the cold case-forum about WDT?
Regarding your theories, wasn't he shot in the back? I can't see how he could be shot accidentally in the back while embracing someone:waitasec:
Anyway, I shall re-read my book... it's absolutely awesome.
(And btw, I think the scary mother did it)
