I showed that pic to my lab professor and she said she didn't think it was real. She didn't believe that a person missing that much of their frontal lobe would be able to be functional at all.
This mugshot of inmate #100087196 looks like a fake but a guard at a Florida criminal booking facility swears it's for real.
The man's picture was no longer on the Miami-Dade County website because he has been released, she said, adding that she didn't know his name.
But the mugshot could still be found at http://miami.whosarrested.com
, a database of Florida arrests.
The website identifies the man as Carlos Rodriguez, 25, and says he was picked up on a charge of allegedly soliciting prostitution on Nov. 9. Other websites were identifying him as Carlos Sosa.
The police report, posted on the Miami New Times website, shows that cops wrote "half a head" in the form's "unique physical features" box. His name isn't legible on the form.
Yeah I read all that, still doesn't mean it's real. I'm not doubting that it is or isn't, just passing on what my professor told me. It could be very possible that the guy did have some of the top of his skull missing. I mean, he's obviously got some scaring going on that I don't think is shopped. But someone easily could have doctored the photo to make it appear much more severe than it is.
