FBI Senior Forensic Examiner Brian Booth has gone dark.
After several damning stories by Frank Report investigating whether Booth lied about EXIF data in the Raniere trial, Booth has become more anonymous on LinkedIn, now calling himself “Brian B.”
FBI Examiner Brian Booth was on LinkedIn
As of recently, Brian Booth had a publicly listed profile on LinkedIn that listed his full name.
When we first started writing about FBI Senior Forensic Examiner Booth and his bizarre testimony about EXIF data, it seems he offered his full name and title on Linkedin. See the Google search below.
After a few stories, it appears he changed his Linkedin to remove his title and only that he worked for the US Federal Government.
His LinkedIn URL was https://www.linkedin.com/in/brian-booth-969a243
Frank Report Investigates Booth’s Testimony About EXIF Data
Then Frank Report began seriously investigating Booth’s claims about EXIF data, and allegations of FBI tampering:
Nicki Clyne Tweets About Booth
During this time, Raniere supporter Nicki Clyne tweeted about Booth’s testimony about EXIF data:
In a criminal trial, an FBI forensic examiner testified that EXIF data was the proof to date photos to prove a crime. He swore that EXIF data is almost impossible to change. But is it? pic.twitter.com/FOCTrZui3J

Many people made comments on Frank Report and in Twitter saying it is absolute nonsense that EXIF data is hard to change.
Brian Booth Goes Private, Now “Brian B.” on LinkedIn
It may be a coincidence but suddenly Booth went dark, just as if someone removed all his EXIF data.
Now when you go to Booth’s LinkedIn URL, it’s no longer available and you get the following message: “An exact match for brian-booth-969a243 could not be found.”
A search within LinkedIn reveals that Booth made his profile private – he is now known only as “Brian B.”
We know it is the same person because the new URL contains “brian-b” instead of “brian-booth” and contains the same LinkedIn identification number (brian-b-969a243) in it: https://www.linkedin.com/in/brian-b-969a243″
First, he took his job title away, and then he took his name away. We know him now as Brian B.
But seriously, why did Booth, a public servant, become a bit more anonymous on LinkedIn and change his displayed name from “Brian Booth” to “Brian B.”?
