I don't know if the pilot (assumption) was ever identified or even if the type of plane he flew was ever identified (he was found still strapped into his seat.) I am left to wonder if this unknown burial in First Cemetery in 1946 was a member of the US military or US Coast Guard. It seems more likely given the time period and looking at the statistics that this is true. Hurricane Audrey 1957 left two markers in this cemetery. I sent an email out to Calcasieu in hopes that more is known concerning this burial that just isn't online, even though the transcript indicated Cameron Parish.
In 1946, the skeleton of an airplane pilot
still fastened in his seat belt was found on Broussard Beach. His unidentified
remains were buried here.
