    Theories on what may have happened to Benjaman Kyle

    I know that we have the general discussions but as pointed out by a fellow ws'er, we don't have a thread for theories on what may have happened.

    I really have none right now. My brain is fried. Maybe I will come up with some later.

    Any thoughts?

    Car accident? Maybe he was in an accident and disoriented, and walked from the accident location and then collapsed by the Burger King? If he walked a distance, he could have gotten sunburned. Do we have an EXACT address of the Burger King? I would love to see the topography of the area where he was found.

    I honestly believe he went through some sort of trauma that affected his family as well. Perhaps his family is deceased and he is the sole survivor.

    Didn't I see somewhere in this forum that the psychologist said his amnesia is psychologically based, not based off of some kind of brain trauma or anything? If so, in my opinion that means his brain is pushing out the things that happened... maybe even his wife and children that he may have had before the traumatic incident occurred.

    This is all speculation... but that's what I think.

    If he was dumped behind that dumpster after the event, then that's why he might have been found there. Perhaps whoever dumped him there didn't want him identified, so they stripped him of all clothing and belongings and left him there to die.

    OK, I found the Burger King. I do not know how to post google earth, but those that have it, here are the coordinates:

    Latitude: 3155'35.05"N
    Longitude: 8119'59.82"W


    This looks like a residential area, but is RIGHT off Rt 95, which is a major highway!

    That could be BUT he was found naked and beaten!! So maybe he was disoriented then got mugged! Boy, that would be just a bad day! Car wreck then mugging and being left for dead! LOL!!

    See, this is kind of what I think. I think maybe he went away for a trip or some other reason and got attacked, which brought on the amnesia. But I think he has some deeper trauma in his life than just the attack. I think that is just what set it off. Make sense?

    I will look more when I get home. I'm off to bowling! Thanks for your input so far guys! I'm hoping that maybe one of our theories may end up helping in some way. Ya never know!

    I agree. Didn't he say that he wanted to get to the ocean? Maybe his family and him were going on vacation to the ocean, got hijacked or something along the way, and the attackers rid him of is wife and children and then dumped him off the highway at the Burger King where he was found after awhile.

    I'm sort of afraid for Benjaman. No one knows what is lurking in his past and it may not be something that would be exactly good to remember, kwim?

    Hurricane Charley hit Florida on Aug 13, 2004. Does anybody know if there is a list of the people missing from this storm? Just a possibility?

    My thought was that it was water-related...As I recall, not only is this BK near I-95, it also appears to be near a canal or waterway. Maybe a boating accident? Sunlight reflecting on water could have affected his eyes, and if he were dazed and disoriented he may have undressed himself to get out of his soaked clothing.

    Just tossing some thoughts out there.

    i think he has had some painful things happen in his life = death of parents....perhaps child.
    i keep wondering if someone had him declaired dead and is living off of his assets and insurance money.

    With the memory of the ocean, I wonder if he was on a business trip or vacation. Ocean vacations near Richmond Hill, GA are Hilton Head Island, SC, St. Simon's Island, GA- both are just over/about an hour from where BK was found. Hilton Head seems to be a place for conventions, both islands seem to be heavy on golf. I don't know if BK could be a golfer with his surgical marks that are reported? I've looked for people missing from these two areas and am not having much luck. Could he have been targeted for robbery while in a beachside community and dropped over an hour away?

    If he had blinding cataracts requiring surgery soon after he was found, he most likely was not legally able to drive a car or a boat.

    Good point!

    Is his estimated age young to have cataracts?

    Weren't his cataracts from prolonged sun exposure? It is possible he may have been in a coma-like state for awhile with open eyes, causing the cataracts? I would like to see how the dumpster was laid out at that Burger King... to see if he would have been back there for awhile without being noticed. Someone dumped him there, in my opinion. I don't think he wandered there and stripped off his clothes. And he had fire ant bites which means to me that he had been there (or somewhere) awhile.

    Someone knows what happened to him, but I think that it's a criminal who will never come forward about his identity because I bet they don't know it... they just know the crime they committed against him.
