Isabella asked:

Good so far. What do people think of the theory that a "boy" shot VanGogh?

Diane Nowak I also believe that Vincent was a victim of foul play. We'll never know,
but I feel that the way he was followed and harrassed by local youths, one of which showed off a gun on several occassions, and the facts that Vincent walked back to town for help after the shooting and the gun and his art materials were never found certainly points to someone else shooting him.
Victoria Nicholson I think Vincent was murdered. Back when he was a missionary preacher
the coal miners loved him. He preached the areas most notorious alcoholic into sobriety etc.Yet Van Gogh became a eccentric even bizarre ahead of his time in some ways but seizure having eplyptic only 5'7 in height did not fit in anywhere with anyone for long person. He was often bullied and its not shocking to think he was murdered.
Isabella Very interesting answers~!
Vincent Sargenti It's very possible, this scenario of his death not being a suicide. I would like to think of Vincent as someone lovable and selfless to the point he would cover for his own murderer. His situation is surely heart rending any way you go about perceiving it.
Lara Check out the last chapter in "Morgue: A Life in Death" where renown criminal pathologist Vincent DiMaio comes to this same conclusion about the two boys. I had never heard of such before but this makes me want to read this bio even more. It's now on my list.
