As far as just the SSDI, there are actually 600 people listed.
You'll have to check that figure out with Ersun Warncke - who performed a serious, comprehensive search and only found 446 (not 600).http://salem-news.com/articles/septembe ... ons-ew.php
With all due respect, I performed an even more comprehensive one because i included not only the listings on Fox but the later edited list on CNN Memorials. Also did more due diligence in terms of noticing names that were listed differently with and without hyphenation and names where middle names were used to begin the surname that may not have turned up in an initial SSDI search.
I will gladly post the names if you would like but here is the breakdown:
Victims Listed In SSDI (Social Security Death Index )
67 out of 212 passengers listed in SSDI (31.6%)
6 out of 33 crew listed in SSDI (18.2%)/
73 out of 245 overall listed in SSDI (29.7%)
487 out of 2652 listed names in SSDI (18.4%)
40 out of 126 listed names in SSDI (31.7%)
TOTAL VICTIMS LISTED
600 victims out of 3023 names in SSDI (19.8%)

(updated list referenced)
Now of those 600 interestingly enough only 63 are listed in the Victims Comp Fund. Now give or take you can remove 2-3 people I included even trying to help the pathetic perps out by including a couple people who were listed as say 80 something when the victim was not. But still the number is certainly higher than 400 something. It's still 590+. I can give you the breakdown again of all the victims listed and you can check for yourself.
The main point is the perps found a way to include basically 600 names in the SSDI, so the process in doing so can't be that hard. Or maybe it could suggest they had real bodies, but then again they probably wanted to keep this process as simple as possible, so maybe not. Who knows, maybe they just got lazy.
