              Chris, We're talking evidence, not proof. Evidence is what you gather, the building blocks, that help you reach a conclusion, tentative or otherwise. The history of the photo, the date, the location, ... more

                Two mules have been identified. After that, could be anyone as I said earlier. Doesn't mean anything without the faces
