Who is Benjaman Kyle?

 

In 2004, Benjaman Kyle woke up outside of a Burger King in Georgia without any clothes, any ID, or any memories. Benjaman was diagnosed with Retrograde Amnesia, also known as the “Hollywood Amnesia”: where you wake up remembering nothing (think the Bourne Identity, 50 First Dates, etc). Benjaman couldn’t remember who he was, and with no ID, couldn’t find out. The trouble was, authorities couldn’t identify him either. Local and state police tried their hardest, but Benjaman remained a mystery.

 

 
 

In 2007, the FBI became involved, but could not identify him: making him the only US citizen in History listed as missing despite his whereabouts being known. Benjaman can’t remember who he is, and not even the US government can tell him: leaving him without an identity, and without a social security number.

 

 

Without a social security number, Benjaman can’t get hired or even stay in a homeless shelter. In other words, there’s nothing he can do. He’s trapped in a loophole that nobody anticipated. Only legislation on the national level will allow Benjaman to work and have a place to stay.
