On September 5, 2001, six days before the tragedy of 9/11, someone found me deceased in a wooded area near a cross country ski trail. Specifically, I was at Deep River, Ontario, on a bench in an outhouse, in a wooded rest area of cross country ski trail, in the Laurentian Hills.
It appears I had been there a couple of day before they found me. They say there was no trauma found to the body. So I guess I wasn't shot, or hurt that way. I didn't hear any findings on drugs or anything that could have been in the blood system.
I appear to have been traveling due to my possessions, well tanned body and sunburn face. Maybe I skied?
Usually a picture is placed above that is an estimated description of what I look like. Here are two sketches but I'm not sure if they look like me. At the end of my story you will find a link that will show you a more accurate picture of me. The only thing is you must be aware before viewing that it is a post mortem photo.
I'm a male Caucasian. Estimated to be about 28 to 40 years of age. I was about 5'3 to 5'4, slim build with brown hair. I had normal teeth with good dental hygiene.
My glasses were blue and pictures are provided below.
I was wear black cotton jockey shorts, faded button fly blue jeans size 30, a black leather belt and a black T shirt. I sported triathlon socks and black small size, fairly worn running shoes.
When they found me, I had plenty of personal effects but still couldn't identify me. Check this list out:
- Silver ring with aquamarine gem stone worn on right hand, little "pinky" finger
- Blue "Eagle CreekTravel" nylon knapsack containing hiking items such as:
- Candle lantern
- Mini mag flashlight
- Water container
- "Levi's" pocket watch with blue face and built in compass
- Luggage tag from a Costa Rican domestic airline
- Plastic laundry bag from Sutton Place Hotel, Toronto
- Matches from Sheraton Hotel, W Hotels (American Chain), and Barclay Hotel in Vancouver
- 2 Protein Bars from a G.N.C. store, more than likely from the United States
Plus my Eyeglasses that are for a near-sighted person and are described as follows:
Frame is "Koh Sakai"Model # is " KS9365"Colour is " 6CPR"Size is " 46-23-145" Right lens prescription is "2.50 -1.75 X 182"Left lens prescription is " 3.50 -1.00 X 008" There is a reflective coating on the lens which is said to be expensive.
One might wonder with so many personal effects and my detailed glasses why can't they identify me? It seems like I had plenty of travels. Don't the hotel's remember me? How about the airlines, can't the flight roster provide a list of names that can be narrowed down to identify who is missing?
I think because foul play is not suspected they didn't try all that hard to figure out who I am. Yes, I'm sure they did the normal routines. However, I think more can be done to figure out my identity. Come on, I had all those personal items on me but no identification?
Sounds like a robbery? Or a lost wallet? If my wallet was lost maybe the lost and found at the ski resorts or lifts could be checked. It really doesn't matter if my money and credit cards are stolen, but maybe my picture ID could be found!
First we have the mystery of who I am, then how about my lack of identification considering all the other items I had with me, and finally what was the cause of my death?
Did I die of a heart attack as I was being robbed? Or Was I simply having a good time partying or having relations with some one who spiked my drink with too much and I overdosed?
I'm a good looking guy, with great teeth and lots of possessions that show I've been places. Someone must know me! Someone must be looking for me!!
Do you know me? Are you looking for me?
