The blond-haired man with the walrus mustache wandered out of Seattle's Discovery Park three weeks ago, with pressed khakis, an expensive dress shirt, a blue blazer and $600 hidden in his sock. He was uninjured — but said he was confused, lost and frightened.
This much is clear: He is fluent in English, French and German. He possesses a professorial knowledge of European cultural history. He seems to have traveled the world. And he says he is a widower.
But he said he doesn't know who he is or
Prior to embarking on a career in public relations, Dr. Lighthart worked as a consultant in financial and logistical systems designs, when he worked with Wall Street concerns such as JP Morgan, Goldman Sachs, Citibank, and Kidder, Peabody & Co.
Dr. Edward Lighthart has provided consulting services for over 25 years. As President and Managing Director of EF Lighthart, GmbH (Vienna, Austria) and EFL Enterprises Slovensko, s.r.o. (Bratislava, Slovakia), Dr. Lighthart has been delivering public relations consultancy services to international businesses in Europe, the Middle East, and the Far East.
Prior to embarking on a career in public relations, Dr. Lighthart worked as a consultant in financial logistical and systems designs, when he worked with such Wall Street concerns as JP Morgan, Goldman Sachs, Citibank, and Kidder, Peabody & Co.
In addition to public relations and financial work, Dr. Lighthart has also taught in Slovakia, Austria, and the Peoples’ Republic of China undergraduate university courses in sociology, comparative religion, philosophy, ethics, English, and research methodologies.
Dr. Lighthart also served as Director of Training and Education of the PACE Program in Chicago and later as the program’s Managing Director in Sydney, Australia.
But he said he doesn't know who he is or when he was born. Or how he got here and why. Or whether he even wants to know.
"I find myself in tears that I don't know if I want the memories," he said. "But if you don't have an identity, it's very difficult to survive."
Editor's note: Within hours of posting this story online, a reader identified Jon Doe as Edward Lighthart, an English teacher he knew in China. The reader, David Akast, said Lighthart taught at English schools in China and "had an incredible knowledge of European cultural history."
Photos of Mr. Lighthart on the Internet suggest that it is he.
But it doesn't answer the key question of how he ended up in Seattle.
The Times is on the way to contact Mr. Lighthart in person to discuss the news.
