Now that the family has conducted their own independent DNA analysis on the man in the movie, we know for a fact the man in the movie is not John Hartley Robertson.
See the documentary The Imposter for the reliability of sisters being able to positively ID their long lost brothers. Wishful thinking is powerful. And so called positive IDs have sent plenty of innocent people to jail. That's why we rely on DNA evidence. Which the family has now sourced. And it's shown Ngoc is not JHR. You're really splitting hairs claiming the mtDNA test is more conclusive. What's your goal post? If the nDNA test indicates there's a 1 in 10 million chance it's a false negative and the mtDNA test indicates there's a 1 in billion chance it's a false negative, it's pretty academic at that point. The smart money is Ngoc just ain't JHR. I know you guys got a film to sell, but, come on. Finally the film maker tested only one tooth. The testing lab's own documentation on this test require a second control tooth. Ngoc's alleged provenance is he's half French, half Vietnamese. As a boy he could have easily been moved around a lot by a father who was a soldier or a merchant, resulting in an isotope level that's a mix of various regions and just happens to match someplace in the USA. The USA is a very big and diverse geological area. There will certainly be some place that matches within error bars unless you have the second control tooth. You should consider publishing the actual report and submitting it to peer review. Finally, the "brain trauma" claim might be true or might be a cover to explain why he couldn't remember obvious stuff, stuff no man should ever forget, like the names of his children or the men he served with. Why not take him to a neurologist to see if you can confirm this brain trauma story.
