My name is John Dradel.

My name is John Dradel and this is the story of my final hours. Before we jump in perhaps you’d like to know a little something about me:

I was a respectable gentlemen in the prime of my life. You know, the best years of your life: those between your fifties and seventies. I stood 5'7" and weighed 120 lbs. My hair was balding and gray. I sported a beard and moustache as well. I had blue eyes. My medical state was less than desirable; at some point in my life I suffered a stroke, I had no teeth, and I smoked. I was a fan of brown. I wore brown shoes, jeans, belt and jacket.

And here is the story of my final moments: On May 24, 2006, in Phoenix, Maricopa County, Arizona on Dunlap near the I-17 frontage road, I was struck by a vehicle. Upon arriving at the hospital and receiving treatment I told the staff my name was John Dradel; shortly thereafter, I passed away as a result of my injuries.

The hospital was unable to confirm the spelling of my name.

My final story is sketchy at best. Unfortunately, this is all the information available to help you figure out who I am.

On the website anywho.com, there are several people listed with the last name Dradel, who live in Arizona. Has anyone tried to contact them?

"Drehmel" could be a possible spelling as well.

Last name could also be Treidel. As the victim had no teeth, his pronunciation might be off. Just a thought.
