Killed as a pedestrian while crossing Santa Fe Drive. He died of massive head injuries.

He was born in Hornchurch, England, to Helen Thompson and Joseph L. Fisher, said Cal Vine, supervising investigator for the county Medical Examiner's Office. But neither his parents nor any other relatives could be found.

A medical examiner's report describes Fisher as a "known transient" in the Encinitas area who had been arrested about three weeks earlier for being drunk in public. Fisher was 6 feet tall and had red, wavy hair that was turning gray. His eyes were blue-gray.

He had a pager on his belt. Vine said Fisher was carrying the phone numbers of two men he had met through Alcoholics Anonymous, but neither could provide any personal information about him. They had only talked to him briefly at a meeting or two. When he died, Fisher's blood-alcohol level was 0.22 – nearly three times the legal limit. Toxicology tests also showed the presence of two sedatives equated with the use of chlordiazepoxide, a drug used to relieve mild anxiety and tension related to muscle spasms. It's also used to ease the symptoms of alcohol withdrawal.

With no one to claim him, county authorities disposed of Fisher's body as they do others who die unknown or without the assets to pay for a funeral. His body was cremated, and his ashes were scattered at sea off San Diego on Dec. 2.
