(Newser) – Mystery solved: Utah's "John Doe" inmate is a man who had gone missing from New Mexico. Phillip T. Beavers has been locked up for more than three weeks and has barely said a word to authorities, but after his case got more publicity his brother identified him, the AP reports. Beavers, who was arrested for trespassing in the police parking garage, is being held on $1,200 cash bond for three misdemeanor charges—including, not surprisingly, failure to provide information to a police officer.
