Police are having trouble identifying the name of the African man who mysteriously fell from the sky in West London in September.

This M. Night Shymalan-esque tale started when a few residents of a suburban neighborhood of Mortlake in West London woke up on a quiet Sunday morning to find the crumpled dead body of a black man just lying on the sidewalk in front of a convenience store.

Police first thought him to be a murder victim, before concluding (that same day) that he had fallen out of a jet that had lowered its landing gear to land at a nearby airport. He was already dead before taking the fall.

The victim had no identification papers, just some currency from Angola, leading police to believe that this was in fact his nation of origin. Airport records also showed that a plane from this African country was beginning its descent into the West London airport at the time in which he was discovered.

As crazy as this must’ve been to wake up to, the explanation as to why a random dead man appeared on the ground at the time of a plane passing by made perfect sense to the residents of Mortlake.

Police have ultimately determined that he climbed into the landing gear to make the fatal jump, but then died from the lack of oxygen in either the wheel base or cargo hold. Why he chose to kill himself this way or what he was running from is still unknown.
