On February 25th, 1972, skeletonized remains of a black and Native male were found near a railroad outside McAlester, Oklahoma by a maintenance crew who were burning weeds.

The male was likely in the 50-70 age range. He is estimated to have been 5’7 with black hair. A skeletal analysis showed he was possibly a manual laborer with a lower socioeconomic status. He had a old healed nose fracture. The analysis showed he had lower spine immobility and he habitually held his head forward and flexed. He had arthritis in his lower back and hips. He was right-handed. There were burnt pieces of fabric with the remains – thin, finely woven, khaki-colored cloth. He is # UP3015 in Namus. DNA is available for comparison and there are currently only two exclusions.

Please call the OCME at 918-295-3400 with any inquiries or information on the identity of # UP3015. Let’s give him his name back.
