“This is an extremely unusual set of circumstances,” Maj. Michael O’Connor of the Atlanta Police told reporters in February.
“The most unusual factor in this case is that every single belonging that we are aware of was located in the residence,” O’Connor said. “His keys, his cell phone, credit cards, debit cards, wallet, all his identification, passport — everything you can think of, we’ve been able to locate. None of those items are missing.”
