    I found the following on zabasearch.com:

    FREDDIE AKERS
    419 GLENCASTLE DR NW Recorded: 03/10/2004
    ATLANTA, GA 30327 (404) 256-2888

    FREDDIE AKERS
    419 GLENCASTLE DR NW Recorded: 03/10/2004
    ATLANTA, GA 30327 (404) 256-5577

    They were recorded in 2004. The victim was located in 1997. What do you guys think? I think either they are wrong about the name, or there is some kind of stolen identity issue involved.

    Here is the obits of a man who owned a trucking company in Gastonia NC, he died in 2000 and had a son named J. Fredrick Akers. Maybe? People who use initials for there first name tend to go by the middle name, right?

    I printed out a bunch of info while I was at school today. I found info on fultonassessor.org about the address I posted originally, which gave me a few names to follow. Those names turned up quite a few other adresses possibly related to the current owner. I don't want to openly post information right away because I don't know yet if any of it is connected to "Freddie", but I can share the info I have through PM or e-mail.

    Also, I have a question for anyone following this... If Freddie is a nickname, what are some possible first names?

    DiamondGirl - You might be on to something... I traced one of the names connected to the Glencastle address to an address in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida. A zabasearch of Akers in the city of Ponte Vedra Beach, FL brings up a Fred Akers and a John F Akers for the same address. John F Akers could be John Fred/Fredrick Akers?

    ETA: John F Akers is also connected to the Glencastle address.

    Holy freakin cow! Diamond Girl... I just read that obit. J Fredrick Akers wife's name matches up with the Glencastle address too! Unfortunately that probably means I'm following the wrong Fred/Freddie/Fredrick Akers since it sounds like this guy was still around in 2000, 3 years after the John Doe was found.

    Gotta leave for work, but I'll work more on this tonight.

    Oh darn, so its prolly just a coincidence. It just seems interesting because it was a trucking company in NC and they lived in Atlanta

    There seems to be a lot of people in this family with Fredrick in their name. I wonder if the father's brothers (he had 3) also used this name for his kids.

    Ok, so was he located in 97 or 95? And if he owned his own rig, wouldn't there be some kind of registration information on file?

    B.A. - Sgt. Bosco Baracus (Mr. T) from the adventure series THE A-TEAM/NBC/1983-87 was fondly called "B.A." by his fellow A-Team members, Vietnam veterans on the run from the United States Army for a crime (robbing a bank in Hanoi) they did not commit. According to the series, B.A. meant "Bad Attitude," because of his constant scowl and his threatening statements like "Don't mess with me, Sucker!" Sgt. Baracus was an expert mechanic whose vivid technical imagination could turn old spare parts/machinery into rocket launchers, armored tanks or machine guns. B.A.'s real name was Elliot. His childhood nickname was "Scooter."

    I thought the same thing. There is so much that I don't get. Who told the police that he was from these places or that his CB handle was B.A.? I wonder if he had a tattoos. Did it say how long he'd been deceased?

    I would think if he was with a motorcycle gang, he would have tattoos.

    I would think that a phone call to the police handling this, may prove fruitful. Also be able to clear up the discrepancy with the date.

    I agree, if he owned his own rig, why wouldn't they be able to know his true identity? Something isn't right about the ownership of the rig.

    There seems to be alot of questions that need some clarification.

    This man was able to talk when he was found enabling him to give the information, and later died?
