Actually, I might have to revise my vote in favor of that - after all he did look pretty different by the time that meeting took place and I am sure if piqued Dumbledore's interest ... I mean it would be a screaming clue considering the one handsome Tom Riddle now a few years along the path looked the way he did!

Re: Dumbledore's Horcrux suspicions

We also have to take into consideration that Dumbledore has seen this before. He is one with many years and many experiences, including defeating a dark wizard himself. It was Dumbledore . . . Professor Dumbledore, not Headmaster Dippet, that was so adamant that the subject of Horcruxes be banned. This of course gets us back to possibilities in time travel too though . . .

Re: Dumbledore's Horcrux suspicions

I voted that Dumbledore at least highly suspected that Voldemort had created at least 1 horcrux when Voldemort asked for the DADA job. His appearence and red flashes of the eyes had to give Dumbledore this impression.
