Brown Recluse??

Description:

Brown and about 2 in. wide. Fast with very skinny legs.

Habitat:

In our house during late spring. Hot day outside and the ac was on inside.

Notes:

I'm increasingly convinced that this is a brown recluse. Although the zoomed in picture is somewhat blurry, I believe the thorax displays the telltale violin shape.

As far as I know not all the spider with violin in the cephalothorax are recluse spiders...
