Boo was surrounded by many rumors....... here's a few I will refute. Boo did not try to kill his parents with scissors, not did he eat small, innocaent animals. He did not have bloodstained hands, yellow teeth yellow, or eyes that popped out of his head. He did not drool, wasn't six and a half feet tall, and did not have a scar on his face. Boo could not freeze flowers, and was not chained to the bedpost....... nor did he poison nuts and peep through the neighbors windows.  

The truth of the matter is that Boo got into trouble when he was 18. He got mixed up with the wrong crowd, stole a car, and disappeared for a number of years. It is possible he stabbed his father with scissors, but he did not kill him. Boo lives with his brother Nathan.
