    Sad story. He was found not too far from my house. Good luck finding out about him...some one out there might want to know and every one deserves to be identified.

    that's real sad. Everybody's got people that care for them somewhere, even if they don't know it or don't know where. I have often wondered about many homeless people - many die anonymously. You ever read a book called "Hobo" by eddy joe cotton? Those in the bay area might recognize eddy from a wacky show called "the yard dogs roadshow". Another interesting character was Robert Burnham Jr. He was a god to amateur astronomers, yet spent his last few years homeless in san diego trying to sell paintings of cats in balboa park.
