On September 30, 1991, Duecker walked up to an attendent at Barkley Regional Airport in Paducah and asked if he could hitch a ride on one of the airplanes. He was refused and waited until one of the planes at the airport was ready to take off. He chased the plane and grabbed hold of one of the wings. While the plane was in the air, the force of the wind ripped him from the wing and he fell to his death. His body remained unidentified for 8 years until his family recognized his picture on an episode of Unsolved Mysteries and paid to have the new marker with his name on it erected.
