An Intriguing Hypothesis: Shroud of Turin=King Tut?

As I have been droning on about for a couple weeks now, I have been reading some vintage issues of Omni Magazine. I came across a small article in the Continuum section (which is on the opposite page featuring a great little article about enigmatic killer clowns and has commentary from Loren Coleman!) that tells of Long Island accountant George Smith's assertion that the Shorud of Turin boasts not the image of Jesus, but the boy King Tut Ankh Amun. Smith claims that:
"...both are identical in height and structure..." and "...both have a beaded collar, a swollen right eye, and a shortened right leg."
The article says Smith has been studying the Shroud of Turin's markings for 11 years, and theorizes the image was made by some sort of radiation process.
I cannot find any references to Smith or this theory on the web anywhere.
