In the scene where Donnie is fighting Francis, it is clearly visible that it is in fact Francis. But when it zooms in on Donnie punching Francis, it is someone else. This boy has blonde hair instead of black hair. Than as the boy rolls over, you can clearly tell that it is Francis and his hair is back to it's normal color.

Factual errors 

The poem quoted in the funeral is found in William Blake's "Songs of Innocence" and "Songs of Experience", not in "Marriage of Heaven and Hell". (possible character error?)
