A Canadian man solved his own cold case — by suddenly remembering his identity 30 years after he disappeared.
Edgar Latulip was 21 years old when he vanished from a group home in Kitchener, Ontario in September 1986.
Police concluded that Latulip had some kind of head injury that caused him to forget who he was.
“It’s the only case, that I know of, where we’ve been able to find someone who has been missing for this period of time,” Det. Duane Gingerich told CTV News.
An incredible outcome. I'm usually dubious over the notion that someone could be missing for so long because they forgot their identity but this is proof that such a thing can occur.
This story just blows me away. I've never heard any case quite like this. It gives me some hope for other missing person cases and makes me wonder if there are any other similar cases.
