    I went on Family Research Later Day Saint’s website to see if anything came up on him. Nothing about death date. Several F. Cramer of Iowa did come up with with variations of spelling on name. I was hoping that death date would come up. Do you have any other information on him, like age, homelessness, was he positive id, to help locating his life prior to his death. This man is a ghost in more ways than one.

    ? Noi circumstances as to how Mr. Cramer’s body was found? Any indication how he died? No details as to his personal life at the time, etc.?

    That is the problem with some of these cases. Also, how many missing persons cases from around the country have no other details then the person’s name, age and when last seen. As a former police officer & detective with the Veterans Administration Police, it was drilled into us at our hospital to did up as much information as possible.

    There is no age or date of birth information on Mr. Cramer, unless he had no further identification information on him. But, I would think that a major police department, would have done some further digging to see what they could find. A minimum would have been to send his fingerprints to the FBI, and see if they had any records of him. He could have been served in the military, or had a minor criminal record.

      I’m wondering if maybe he wasn’t a homeless man, and they were weren’t able to find anything on him or if the police (at the time) didn’t care enough to dig any deeper.
