33 Years Later, Family is Found

On October 16, 1982, President Ronald Reagan made a radio address about the nation’s economy. Jackson Browne’s “Somebody’s Baby” made #7 on Casey Kasem’s American Top 40. In the heartland of America, a 29 year old man was struck by a train and died. The medical examiners were able to identify him and locate his former wife who stated that his mother was deceased. She provided the first name of his possible sister but the sister was never located. Today, almost exactly 33 years after his death, I located his sister’s contact information and dialed the phone. Her husband answered and said that she had died last year, always wondering what had happened to her little brother.
