 It was November 12, 2013 when trucker, Ray Specht, traveling eastbound on I-88 called the police to report something unusual along the interstate: a man laying on the right shoulder of the road.  A call was placed to the Lee County dispatch center about a man laying along the interstate around the 51.5 mile mark.  The caller says the man looked suspicious and that's why he didn't make make an effort to stop and see what the problem was.
The caller says he saw the man laying partially on both the grass and shoulder with no vehicle in sight. Minutes later a second call comes into the dispatch center.  Illinois State Police say they responded to the scene, but found nothing.  The next day, Lee Catlin of Bettendorf was found dead.  The cause of death hasn't been determined, but the Lee County coroner's office says foul play was not a factor.  Still, many questions remain. Why was Catlin on foot on the highway?  Why was he waving his arms? The 9-1-1 calls only add to the mystery.
