    Case History
    The victim is suspected to be an itinerant railroad worker. Authorities have speculated that the man may have been one of about 80 Navajo who worked on a Union Pacific Railroad track crew in the Broadwater area for several months in 1979.
    No American Indian residents in the Morrill County area had been reported missing at the time, and the partial skeleton did not appear to match any missing persons reports.
    Only a partial skeleton was recovered, with no clothing or other materials.

    Rudy Victor

    Was said to have been travelling from Denver to Canada which leaves a very good possibility he went through Nebraska.

    New rule out list:

    Gary Locklear 1958 South Carolina
    Rudy Victor 1953 Colorado
