Adult Male’s Identity Still a Mystery for Sacramento Coroner

Public encouraged to call Coroner’s Office with information

The Sacramento Coroner’s Office has been unable to identify an elderly white male who passed away on May 9, 2011 of natural causes in a nursing facility in Sacramento.

The Coroner was informed that the elderly man was under investigation by the California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) prior to his death for receiving health care under false declaration, grand theft and identity theft. DHCS began their investigation in February 2010 when it was discovered that the elderly man had assumed the identity of Manuel Calderon of Texas.

Interviews with the elderly and debilitated man conducted in 2010 produced minimal information which investigators were not able to confirm. Subsequent fingerprint comparisons revealed that the man had assumed the name of Manuel Calderon sometime prior to 1989. The combined investigations of the DHCS and the Sacramento Coroner have produced the following information about the elderly man:

1989 – Known to have already assumed the name Manuel Calderon
1998 through 2011 – Resided in various care facilities in Sacramento
Interview information:
• His true first name may sound similar to “Carlos”
• His true last name may sound similar to “Flotte”
• Father’s first name is Luis
• Mother’s first name may be Maria de Jesus
• A brother or other family may reside in Yuba City, CA

Physical characteristics:
•70+ years (estimated)
• Caucasian
• Height - 5’7”; Weight - 154 lbs.
• Brown eyes; gray hair
• No teeth; no dentures
• Scars on chest and both upper legs
• Left hip replacement with metal orthopedic implants
