    The unknown man was admitted to, and treated for kidney and bone cancer, at the Veteran's Medical Center on February 6, 2001. At that time he identified himself as James Morgan, White Male, DOB: 1/18/37, of 716 Main Street, Cincinnati. He listed no Next-of-Kin.

    The man died on February 20, 2001. At the time of his death, it was determined the social security number he provided was not his. Subsequently it could not be verified he was a military veteran. A check through NCIC with the name and DOB showed no record found. His fingerprints were sent to the FBI due to finding no local record. A report from the FBI indicated their Criminal and Civil files were checked with negative results.

    The photo of "James Morgan" was shown to residents at the Dennison boarding house, where Morgan reported he lived. Several people at the boarding house knew Morgan and they said Morgan worked for a local grocery store. Morgan spent time in the Cincinnati Veteran's Hospital and that they visited him while he was a patient. One of the individuals stated Morgan told him that his real last name was Wasson. The social security number Morgan used indicated he previously worked in California and for the city of Memphis, Tennessee. City of Memphis, verified a Mike Wasson was employed there in 1998 and 1999 as temporary summer help. They identified Wasson as a black male 16 years old.
