Corriveau(L) and Erickson(R)

The NCIS (Naval Criminal Investigative Service) needs help solving the cold cases of Daniel Erickson and Robert Corriveau.

Daniel Erickson (Minn)

Daniel Erickson, then 20, was home on leave back in 1975. He was to celebrate his birthday and drive his car from St. Paul (Minn) to California to his new assignment aboard the USS Durham. He never made it. A Carrollton farmer found his body in a barn.  He had been shot twice in the chest and once in the head. His family is still looking for answers and set up a website with pages for memories and tips. You can find it here.

If you have information about Erickson’s killing, email [email protected] or visit to contact the family.

Robert Corriveau (PA)

A Pennsylvania state trooper was on patrol on Nov. 18, 1968, when he saw a man sitting up on the side of the highway. That man was dead, stabbed once through the heart. Since the man did not have identification on him, he remained unidentified for more than 40 years until his body was exhumed for DNA testing in 2009. His name was Robert Corriveau.

Marine Cpl. Robert Daniel Corriveau, a decorated Vietnam veteran, went missing from the Philadelphia Naval Hospital and was declared a deserter. But he did not desert the Marines.

Robert had enlisted in the Marines at age 17 and was sent to Vietnam, where he served two tours. He fought with the Third Battalion, Fourth Marine Division, and was wounded in action three times. He was sent home with two Bronze Stars, two Purple Hearts, and a chest full of ribbons.

If you have any information, if you served with Corriveau or, if you knew him from the hospital, please call 610-268-5158. You can also leave information bye-mailing to [email protected]
