Is it possible this is our missing FBI agent?

Or possibly that missing Fox executive?

I doubt it because the missing FBI agent is only 35.

Well, Gavin Smith IS 57, but I hope it's not him...

I arrived perhaps 15 minutes after the man collapsed (according to others) and his friend was performing CPR when I arrived. The man was face-up when I arrived and it was my impression that multiple people were with him during the entire incident.
