Mystery inmate identified

Yesterday I posted about a mystery man who had been locked in a Utah jail for several weeks on misdemeanors because he refused to tell cops his name. He's now been identified. And he's not former Centre County, Penn., District Attorney Ray Gricar, DB Cooper, or famed Alcatraz escapee Frank Morris, all of whom the public suggested to police as possibilities. He is Philip Todd Beavers, 61, of Farmington, New Mexico. A family member identified him after seeing his photo in the news. "Utah County jail’s ‘mystery man’ identified" (Salt Lake Tribune)



  1. He’s willing to spend weeks in jail rather then let cops make fun of his name, and now the entire internet is doing it?  What a cruel twist of fate!

  2. Dammit, why couldn’t he have gotten himself arrested in Beaver, Utah? That would have been perfect.
