    Rohnert Park is a pretty nice little area (been there)..I'd bet you this man was recently homeless, had some ties to the area, and probably suffered a serious health issue like a stroke or a heart attack.

    Curious detail: The decedent possessed various journals with writing indicating he was interested in mathematic, physics, and science. A university professor or a man who has worked in the field of applied physics?

    There is a University near Rohnert Park. Someone might remember him.

    According to news at sfgate.com he was found at 2 p.m. Jan. 2 along an access road that travels parallel to a creek between the Motel 6 and the Expressway Self Storage on Commerce Boulevard (http://www.sfgate.com/bayarea/articl...ar-6040679.php) and died of natural causes.
    He did not seem to be a transient since found with the body were: "a red 7-inch Polaroid tablet, a Cobra camera in a case, four micro SD cards, three memory cards and a micro solar panel.". The contents were checked by LE and did not help ID the men.
    His notes talked about Einstein.
    He may have been local since staff at the Rohnert Park Public Library recognized him and mentioned that he would go there and do research.
    The press democrat has a scanned page of the manīs notes at http://www.pressdemocrat.com/news/46...-id?artslide=0
    they show definitions of physics concepts that look like transcriptions from an undergraduate textbook of physics. Another page shows a table with melting points and enthalpies of fusion of several chemical elements.

    Believe it or not it's common for some people in Northern CA to go voluntarily homeless to save money. I knew of it back in the 1990s & it's happening now due to the record high rent costs in the Bay Area & nearby areas.

    It's very possible this UID was just enjoying a "hippie/freegan" lifestyle & neglected the health issues that caused his death. I'd bet money on him having ties to Rohnert Park but not any relatives living there. He probably just wanted to hang around where he was the happiest.
