    That last name doesn't seem like something you'd randomly make up. According to Peoplefinders and Ancestry, there are several Wordemans around his age in Cambria/San Luis Obispo, CA. Perhaps he used the last name of a friend, former classmate, coworker, etc. Hopefully, that was already explored.

    Any word on how he died?

    Here's his page on CP with a little more info. There's a lot of chatter on Topix about him; people seem to think he was murdered, but that's just rumor.

    Very country style belt. I have heard that when people give a false name that they use a name that is similar to their real name. Maybe a play on the name (ex: Dick Workman)

    I wonder if he's a writer of some sort, journalist or teacher or something. A Word Man.

    I found two Richard Dean Wordeman that live in Oregon, age 67. if he was using someone elses name. Back in the 90's I guess motels didn't make a copy of the DL that was used.

    His ticket was to finally take him all the way to Florida. I searched the California missing page with no luck. His hair looks like it has red in it.
