Identities of 5 in IL state care elude authorities
Dozens of unnamed people show up in emergency rooms or police stations every year, and in most cases they eventually are identified. When a hospital patient doesn't have identification, nurses, social workers, doctors and secretaries question the paramedics and call police and homeless shelters. They look for clues in personal belongings, such as a grocery coupon card on a key chain. Employees at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, for example, have identified people based on video rental cards.
