There WAS an Imposter. On the Day of the Miracle of the Sun, We Publish Our First of Many Expert Reports. A Plastic Surgeon's Judgment on the Case of the Two Sister Lucys.
"On the 101st anniversary of Our Lady of Fatima, we are presenting one expert report on the issue of an imposter Sister Lucia. Hopefully, the release of this report demonstrates that we are approaching this issue very seriously and have engaged some of the top doctors, scientists, and companies in the world. There will be much more to come, and we need your support now more than ever. The investigation is intensifying.
As seen in this report (and others) the analysis of the photographic images refers to Subject A (0-18 years old), Subject B (20-40 years), Subject C (60 years old), and Subject D (75 years+). Attached is an example of a photograph from each Subject. These are the four groups we divided the images into to organize the analysis. We are currently of the opinion that Subject A and Subject B are the same individual. We are also relatively confident (though not certain) that Subject C and Subject D are the same individual. As Dr. Garcia notes, we are confident Subject A/B depict a different individual than the individual(s) depicted in Subject C/D. Much more analysis to come!
A few highlights of Dr. Garcia's analysis:
- Dr. Garcia possesses a degree in art history and is of Hispanic descent giving him a unique background to assess this question.
- Dr. Garcia is the individual who first identified the presence of a fake image that has been previously discussed on this site.
- Dr. Garcia thinks that multiple items suggest a different individual but the strongest evidence is the chin and eyelids. He also thinks the noses are different.
Here are some of the sample pictures which were analyzed by Dr. Garcia. One picture is presented as an example of Sister Lucy A (Child), B (40s and 50s), C (1967), and D (post-1982).
