William R Thomas said:Using photoshop, you can blow up the color photo, and it appears that there is something on his arm. I played with both photos for a while last night, playing with gamma, and overlaying them. If you look at the photos on a larger scale, you can see the mark on the right side of Johnnys head. I believe without a doubt, brand or no brand, its him. ALSO, if you have photoshop, blow his face up to about 1000 pixels wide. You can see, without question, that he has been beaten severly. The right eye is actually cut, and it is bruised below that.
Dr. Doogie said:I saw earlier the theory that the color photo is the original and the back and white photo is the "later" version since it is easier to convert a color to a b&w compared to adding color to a b&w. This is true, but both photos could be later variations of a earlier color photo that does have the brand on it - one b&w with the brand still on it and a color version with the brand removed or blurred.

I believe them to be real and here is why: The clothing, hairstyle and room decor are consistant with the tiem frame of Johnny's disappearence. I grew up in the 80's and this is what the boys would wear. The hair is consistant too because most boys were not into the long hair of the 70's but not yet the super short hairstyles of the late 80's to 90s'.
Now for identification of the two other boys......
How's these names for possiblities....
But most especailly.....Randy Parscale OR Kevin Collins.
Take a look and tell me what u think.
Heart of Texas - I can't express strongly enough, how deeply I agree with that!HeartofTexas said:I think Jim Gannon/Jim Guckert, or whatever his name, is a disgusting specimen of a human being, and I hate to see his name tied in with Johnny Gosch because it reduces the credibility of anything that might have happened to Johnny Gosch
