He has $600 in his sock and no memory of who he is or how he got there. He is fluent in English, French and German and has an apparent deep knowledge of European cultural history. He seems to have traveled the world. And he says he is a widower. Doctors suspect he is not faking it but they don’t know how to help. Police are stumped as well.
The man has provided a list of clues
but nothing authorities are able to use to identify him.
Within hours of his story going online, a reader in Shanghai, China recognizes
him. At least, now, they know who he is
but they still don’t know how he ended up in Seattle. The story is still unfolding and the stories in these links may change.
