Ricky is not in the Social Security Death Index
I decided to go looking for Ricky the other day in the Social Security Death index using my Ancestry.com account. I think I read somewhere he was on disability so you would think even if he never worked a day in his life he still would have had a number and been in their records. The conspiracy theorist in me briefly came out and wondered if what the FBI is putting out there happened as they say it did. I am never one to believe in such things but I have done extensive genealogy research in the past and everyone I know that has died in recent years has been in that index. I might request the death certificate from the Missouri department of vital records assuming I am eligible to make that request. I don't think you run into privacy with death records, only birth and marriage.
