Wim,

I don't think the first photo is of him. I thought the first one is a photo of the fellow who allegedly killed his parents and stored them in the fridge of his home. His name escapes me right now, but it was something like Rogers.

Charles Rogers= Frenchie.

The first one is Charles Frederick Rogers, the second one is the tramp as photographed in Dealey Plaza nov 22 63, the third is Harold Doyle.

Thanks James, Can you also do one with the picture of Harold with the kids? Just his head in the middle picture?

Wim

I think it's a great match. I would say "bullseye".

Is everyone here agreeing that "Frenchy" and Mr. Doyle are the same man? I do not see it. I look at the nose, the forehead, and especially at the ears. IMO, none of them match, even remotely. Of course we know the old saying about opinions, but if the pictures inserted by James are of the two men at nearly the same time in their lives (same age +-), I do not believe that they should even be compared. And, again I add, FWIW, it is just my opinion.

Terry,

Jury is still out for me.

If you look at the two images of the Tramp (Frenchy) I used in my comparisons, they don't even look like the same man. This aspect has always made life difficult when comparisons are made whether it be Charles Rogers or whoever.

Cheers,

James

I am certainly NOT agreeing that "Frenchy" and Doyle are the same man. I am agreeing with YOU.

Wim

PS: Also Doyle was 32 in 1963. Frenchy looks 10 years older if you ask me.

Frenchy had a VERTICAL wrinkle above his nose on the supraorbital arch.
Neither Doyle nor any other contender does.

Jack,

I would prefer to think that "Frenchy" was not Harold Doyle.

However, when I looked very closely at the photo of Harold Doyle in post #8 (above), I could see the same vertical wrinkle which you pointed out in the "Frenchy" photos.
