    GA - Duluth, WhtMale, 50's, died at hospital, Jul'14 - John Rogers

    Hope I did this right.

    http://www.gwinnettdailypost.com/new...ll-unidentifi/

    White male, 50s, found in the midst of a cardiac event on the side of a road.

    "Now deceased, the man was wearing khaki cargo shorts, a white shirt, white Nike sneakers and a white University of North Carolina hat. He had a “distinctive scar on his left arm” and was wearing “what appeared to be purple gardening gloves.” Based on keys found in his pocket, authorities believe he may drive a 1998 to 2002 Toyota."

    Unless I've provided a link, most of what I say is my own opinion. Sometimes, I'm thinking out loud and may explore avenues I don't necessarily think are true, but I'm always aware I could be wrong, so I check other stuff out.

    "Police released a photo of the man Thursday evening. He was in cardiac arrest when first responders found him off the side of S. Old Peachtree Road, near Lou Ivy Road, around 10:15 a.m. on July 29. That’s an area in Peachtree Corners near Berkeley Lake."

    Can anyone think of why someone would be out in a random neighborhood wearing gardening gloves?

    Working as a gardener or landscaper

    Dumpster diving or trash picking

    Gathering aluminum cans to turn in for cash

    All great answers! I wish they could have IDed this guy before he passed so his loved ones could have said goodbye.

    Necco's article shows a good picture of the scar on his arm. It's quite large - looks like a surgical repair? He also has a pretty good tan line on his wrist, maybe from a watch. Looks like he spent a fair amount of time outdoors.

    I agree about the scar and the tan line. That is definitely a scar from the surgical repair of a break, my BIL has a very similar scar from a broken arm. And that tan line is from a watch or wide bracelet (which is unlikely on a man of his age) for sure!

    One more suggestion as to why he was out there: perhaps a college professor/teacher, collecting some sort of botany specimen or insect in preparation for teaching or some type of research?

    Identified as John Philip Rogers by his son who flew in from CA. Seems he was just out walking near his home. . I am glad they found his identity!
