There would have been no reason for censorship. In fact, the accident was probably reported in such a way to suggest that the troop movement was larger than it actually was. Such misinformation was circulated at every opportunity, ostensibly to mislead enemy agents as to the true strength (or understrength) of our forces.
There may be a deceased file. It probably won't consist of much more than a copy of his Report of Death - a standard form issued in lieu of a death certificate - but it's worth a try. Local officials usually deferred to military authorities in cases involving deaths of military personnel but there's still a chance a death certificate was filed in the county where death occurred.
You'll find instructions on how to order his deceased file at Message #2112. Go back to the Main Page, enter "2112" in the box in the upper right corner labeled "Jump to #_____" then click on "Go".
If the above is unsuccessful, I can obtain a copies of other files that should contain much, if not all, of the information you're seeking. These other files, however, usually incur expenses that must be passed along.
