I also found an article from 1988 (10 years after he was found) that mentions him! http://articles.philly.com/1988-07-0...-several-times
The man, who might have been a wayward seaman, has been unidentified since he was found shot to death at the edge of Crum Creek in Ridley Township nearly 10 years ago. The woman, probably a drifter, lost her life and her face to a shotgun blast in an Upper Darby playground in 1981, according to investigators.
Dr. Dimitri L. Contostavlos, the Delaware County medical examiner, said both bodies were kept refrigerated for years while investigators searched for clues about their identities. When the clues ran out, the bodies were interred in the potter's field off Route 352 in Lima.
The man found in Ridley Township and the woman killed in Upper Darby fit the pattern of the most-difficult bodies to trace: they were slain; they had no identification; and they almost certainly came from someplace else.
During spare moments, Hurst spreads the thin sheaf of documents that detail what little is known known about the man and woman. He wonders what more can be done to solve the mystery.
"They're beside my desk in a filing cabinet with a big 'unknown' label on it," he said. "But they're never forgotten."
The man's body was found Dec. 13, 1978. He had been shot several times and was partially submerged in the creek. He was white, 6 feet tall, weighed about 175 pounds and had dark brown hair and eyes. For a long time, investigators tried to link him with the merchant marine because he was wearing a watch purchased in a military store. He also wore an arrow-shaped earring and a necklace with a silver horn and heart.
I wonder how hard it would be to get him in NamUs...
