A man was found near the Burger King dumpster in Savannah, Georgia. When found, this man was unconscious and unclothed with wounds on his body. Further examined, he suffered fractures due to blunt force and many red marks on his body due to ant bites. But when asked about his identity, this man could not answer it. Even the FBI, who stepped in, failed to reveal who this man was.
