On Friday, September 25, 1992, an unidentified man was dropped off at the Community Health Center in Scranton. He was admitted under the name Albert Crazy Buffalo and gave his address as PO Box 546, Mission, SD. He died the following day.
It is unknown who dropped Mr Buffalo at the hospital since that person did not enter the building. A business card for a motorcycle painting business led investigators to Davy's Last Chance bar in Chenango Forks, Broome County, NY. Patrons at the bar stated that the man, an American Indian with Indian Chief on his arm, would paint motorcycles for drinks. Unfortunately, that was all the information the bar patrons could provide and the trail went cold. It is believed that Mr Buffalo was hitchhiking and was picked up near Binghampton, NY.
Albert Crazy Buffalo was laid to rest in the Diocese of Scranton's Cathedral Cemetery. He remains unidentified.
