This case has always intrigued me. I tried getting information out to other countries years back and would like to try again, since it's been a few years back.

I've often wondered if he committed some kind of a crime in another country and couldn't forgive himself.

Maybe...very possible. I always thought he killed himself because he lost everything playing in the casino's, being a high roller. Already estranged from his family because of his gambling addiction. Just a theory. The identity theft I find interesting. It suggests he had means to hide his own identity, indeed he could have been a criminal or a fraudster, but it also suggest he had some connection to California.

Oh yeah.... I didn't think of that angle. His wife may have been done with him because he wouldn't stop gambling. I wonder if LE asked to see any camera footage from the casinos?

Can't be a match...color of eyes differ....unless one of the files is wrong, but a story like this one would fit.

They look a LOT alike. But, the neck doesn't fit, either.
