    Was the West Virginian "American Lockpicker" by chance? That could explain a lot.

    Dolan had been hitchhiking, so he probably looked a little sunburned and gruff. Throw in he was sitting by the side of a highway. The shooting motorist probably figured Dolan was just another illegal from Canada.
