I wondered the same thing. It's an interesting case, as here's a guy who seems very well put-together and with some means. Not the usual John Doe. One would think someone would know the man or report that he's gone. Any knowledge on how they know he was in New Rochelle and took the train? Did he live in the Brewster area? If not, why pick that place as where you'd end it all?

:welcome:

I have to wonder if the last people to see him think he's happy and thriving somewhere else? Maybe he was planning on moving?
