    On June 26, 1972, an unidentified male pedestrian was involved in a fatal accident when he was struck by a vehicle near the I-40 overpass on Highway 183 in Clinton, Oklahoma.

    He had long brown hair, just above his shoulders in length. He also had unshaven faint hair growth along the sides of his cheeks.

    He was wearing a blue double-knit shirt ("Never Iron brand" by CAMPUS), blue jeans with a brown leather 30-inch belt with “Captain’s” buckle, tall brown leather boots (size 9-9.5) with 1 inch closing strap and brass rings on either side and a blue armband on his left arm made of denim material. Also found with the decedent was a pack of cigarettes (“MARLBORO” brand) with a St Louis, Missouri stamp #42289, a white-gold colored promise ring with “TC968” engraved on the inside, and a sheet of paper with dates June 16 through June 30 suggesting that the subject was employed by a company or location called Mollincrodt/Mellincrodt/Mallinckrodt.

    Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals is an Irish company that has the main operating headquarters in St. Louis, MO. I would doubt that the company has records that go that far back. I would hope LE was able to locate this company back then. The write up makes it out like they had no idea what it was. It is a global company and wouldn't have been difficult to research even in the early '70s.

    Yeah the writeup does make it sound like they don't know what the company is/was...
    But then NamUs said this... So maybe they're just looking for anything else it could be since this company had no records of him.

    Thanks for pointing that out. I should probably read everything twice before I respond!

    If this John Doe was a contractor or traveling to/from a job site then it would make sense that Mallinckrodt didn't know him directly as an employee but the agency he worked for would. Mallinckrodt does have records dating back to at least the 1942 Manhattan Project. They produce nuclear medicine and by Federal law have to maintain detailed work project management records.
    (My parents retired from this company 20+ yrs ago.) ;)
