Thanks to Steve Kruger for the following information:
"Graveside rites for the unidentified hitchhiker who was burned to death in an automobile crash at the Wabash River Bridge on Interstate 74 at the Fountain County line on Nov. 3, were held at 11 a.m., Saturday at Lower Mound Cemetery, south of U.S. 136 on old Indiana 63.
According to state and county authorities, all efforts to identify the hitchhiker has failed.
The young man, believed to be in his mid 20's, had been picked up at the U.S. 41 and I-74 Interchange at Veedersburg.
He told the driver of the car that he had spent the night in Rockville and mentioned that he planned to stop in Danville, Ill., to see if people he had known still lived there.
There was indication that he might have been going to Iowa.
All identification was destroyed by fire.
The Bodine & Shelby Funeral Home in Covington was in charge. The Rev. Henry Karg, Pastor of Benson Chapel Church, officiated."
