Tom Killen Isn't Sam Thomas—He's Thomas Killen! (Or So It Seems)
Note: This post may contain Find 815 game spoilers.
The latest theory about the mysterious Tom Killen is that he's not Sam Thomas at all. Apparently, there may be a real person named Thomas Killen (who also goes by Tom) and is attending Queensland University of Technology. (Actually, we don't know for sure at this point whether Thomas Killen is a real person or whether his site is an extended part of the alternate reality game.) Remember how uncannily similar Sam Thomas and Tom Killen looked? Well now let's compare Thomas Killen with Tom Killen:
There's no doubt about whether the people in these two photos are a closer match. They even have the same curly hair—no hair cutting or styling required! As sure as I was about Sam and Tom, I'm much more certain that Thomas and Tom are the same person.
Shortly after his page was discovered by ARG players, Thomas removed all contact information from his page, posting instead a note that says simply, "actually dont contact me right now".
So, the question remains: Does this Thomas Killen fellow have anything to do with the Find 815 ARG? Or was he just some clever guy who happened to find the Flickr group early and thought he'd have some fun with the LOST fans? If the latter, I'm sure he got more than he bargained for. If the former, then perhaps more information about this character may yet be forthcoming.
