I’m Matt Wolfe, a writer for the New Republic who wrote a really long story about Benjaman Kyle — the mysterious man who lost his memory in 2004 and only just discovered his real identity and returned home to his family! AMA!
In 2004, Benjaman Kyle was found naked, blind, and unconscious behind a Burger King in Richmond Hill, Georgia. He had no memory of who he was or how he’d gotten there. For the next decade, countless people — including Redditors — worked doggedly to figure out who he was. Finally, last year, the mystery was solved. I’ve been reporting Benjaman's story for almost three years and just published a long piece about it in the New Republic. Ask me anything!
