You may be thinking, "Hey MatPat, don't we already know everything about Crying Child?" No, Theorists, we do NOT and you proved it! "Crying Child" is what we've referred to the victim of the Bite of '83 as since the beginning but that child has a name! A name I have figured out! This is one of the oldest mysteries of the franchise and I am sure that we've cracked it wide open! Theorists, no FNAF mystery will go unsolved as long as I am on the case.

    I think this will help, In the Book The Fourth Closet is there Carlton seeing things with Micheal, about lost drawings, but there was a boy mentioned that had a black and white Shirt that is with Carlton Micheal, maybe it's the" Crying Child" I don't remember everything but I think it's the crying Child. That's my Theory. Please read it.

    I have a feeling that 'Evan' and Michael are not full brothers. Going onto your theory about Henry being the father of 'Evan' (which i very much enjoyed btw) made alot of sense but however would a brother kill another brother without feeling upset about it? (Bite of 83) Michael puts Evans head into freddy and when the accident happens he doesn't seem to show being upset about it perhaps they are half brothers one whos father is Henry (Evan) and the others purple guy (Michael) it would make alot of sense then for the two half brothers to hate each other and for the story to line up

    13:45 “he’s intense about making money, and he’s really good at it” Flashback to that one theory where Scott is purple guy because of family pictures on the fnaf 4 hallway wall. I think MattPat made it not sure though Scott = Michael. But that’s just a theory, A GAME THEORY aaaand cut I haven’t read the book so I don’t know if they tell us what his job is
