If you read further, you'll find that his young female assistant may have also fudged her qualifications for the job.

I just read the same in another article.

She never had any children. Technically there's one last living sibling left (out of several), so she'd be in line to get any money. I don't know if she ever knew about this, but if she did, she wouldn't tell me about it.

Company's been blown up...killed 17 (my aunt & her boss included on that day), injured 150. Even disturbed homes in the nearby area too.



Maybe I'll PM you.



Thanks a lot! Actually, a university law professor I contacted said generally, damages for an incident like this must be filed w/i 2 yrs of the incident, but that I should speak w/ a local personal injury attorney to get his or her opinion. So he didn't say all hope was lost.
I thought it was the Monsanto one in 1947 but that killed over 500. Let it go. It has been far too long to do anything about it and all the people involved are either dead or close to it. Some things are just better left alone.

You don't need to image search. It's clearly titled with the name of the company and the date. Kinda explains why he might have been a victim of identity theft...

OK everyone, thanks for the comments, I'm pretty much done w/ this thread. Again, I'll research for my own personal interest, collect/save some articles & info, & that's it.

I contacted that chemist who reached out to me that he wrote the article about my specific family & the explosion incident. He wanted to really know what happened to my grandfather, which I couldn't tell him much. He might help me locate a book about the explosion, which would be an interesting resource to keep.

So, it ends. The last I'll say is that I wish I had known my aunt who passed & even my grandfather on my father's side of the family. Perhaps, I'll see them in heaven whenever I pass.

Nah. Won't ever happen. It's been too long a time.

My aunt was killed in a chemical explosion back in the 1940s while she was at her job site. She was in her early 20s. Her boss was responsible for this. He lied about his education, credentials, etc. to get his job. There's plenty of proof online about this...countless articles, photos, and even a book written about this tragedy that I'm trying to find/obtain. I know boss' name, the name of the company she worked for, the address, etc. I just learned of all these articles, etc.

Is there here anything at all I can do to pursue this and if so, who can I contact? (My father has passed away a few years ago now and there are no other relatives of mine to ask about this.)
No. By any measure at all all the statutes of limitation would have run.

I also question if you have any standing to pursue a claim on behalf of an aunt.
