People often reflect and ask the question “Who am I?,” but seldom do people mean it in the most literal form. A Georgia man who was beaten in a dumpster in 2004, however, still has no idea who he actually is.

Benjaman Kyle was not named after a relative or a historical figure, instead named by authorities who discovered him naked and beaten nearly to death in a dumpster in 2004.

His initials are the same of the restaurant he was found outside of: Burger King.

Kyle, to this day, has no recollection as to who he is or how he got there.

The Georgia man suffers from retrograde amnesia, which means he does not know any of his personal details or anything before the day a woman found him in a Burger King dumpster.


Kyle does not have a photo ID or social security number, so he cannot check out a library book, and homeless shelters don’t accept people without ID or papers.

In addition, his fingerprints aren’t in any databases, and authorities are truly stumped as to who he is.

The internet has come to the Georgia man’s rescue, however, as with the help of a petition, a website in his honor, a documentary, Reddit, Facebook and Twitter, Benjaman might finally get the help he needs.

I’m not in any of the databases that they can search,” Kyle said. “Basically, I don’t exist. I’m a walking, talking person who is invisible to all the bureaucracy.


“When you think about it it’s pretty pathetic, if no one is actually looking for someone who disappeared. 


“Isn’t there anyone important enough in your past life that they want to look for you? But for all practical intents and purposes, I don’t exist. No one is looking for me.

“I don’t have any plans for the future. Sometimes I wish I just hadn’t woken up.”

Hopefully someone will come forward with information about his identity so he can finally have some peace of mind.
