    SL51
    This one gift company offered an SL 51 at one time but I was unable to find a pic of it since the search result link was out dated but I did see they offer a hooded thing as SL21

    Edited to add: I did find an SL51 current hooded shirt number but it was not what pictured on the J. Doe but maybe in 88 they had a different shirt with that number?
    Sapo gifts makes those promotional gift items
    http://www.sapo.com.cy/about.php

    Maybe his shirt was a promotional gift. Sapo was started in 1987 according to them and the body turned up in 1988 (I'm ignoring the estimated death year) Still its probably too close on dates to be connected.

    user ID of SL51 not likely connected in any way but it popped up in search results.

    Note:SL51 was a very popular part number for many products according to a simple web search.

    I wonder if the shoe was worn for orthopedic reasons? Not sure where that thought would take us but maybe there are some records somewhere of specially ordered shoes?

    Something I found almost by accident.

    I am curious if this guy was perhaps from Scotland; according to their website, DE shoes have been in Scotland since 1867. May be just a coincidence though and completely unrelated...FWIW, here is the link.

    The tobacco can looks like an old Velvet brand tin

    Stephen Mysick? I googled the route from Rapid City, Manitoba to Correctionville, IA and it is interesting...can't put it in other words other then if Mysick wanted to disappear and hitched a ride and headed south instead of Winnipeg. Or if he did end up in Winnipeg and decided to keep going, the route to Correctionville gets even "straighter".

    Namus has the age estimation to 60; Mysick was 61. No mention of dentals on either Doe or Namus for the UID, it does say Mysick had significant tooth decay.

    Not sure this is even helpful at all, but the Tobacco tin is Velvet brand, though I can't narrow down a specific time frame. A quick google search and a little reading & img searching has made me lean towards post 1930s, likely 60s-70s for that style with that particular logo/font.
