Leopold Hoschander Mystery Update #records


The SSDI information I have found gives Leopold Hoschander's last address as the US Consulate in Moroni, Comoros. When Leopold emigrated to the US, he gave his profession as a salesman working in the field of egg produce. There is no record of his moving on into a diplomatic career. Can anyone kindly explain what this could mean?

Meanwhile, in trying to access more information about Leopold's death, having checked several years' worth of the reports online of the deaths of US citizens, I then sent an inquiry to the National Archives, and was informed that death-related information must be sought from the place where he died, i.e., the "appropriate state, territory, or local bureau of vital statistics". They kindly gave me this link http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/w2w.htm to begin that search. However, there does not seem to be an option to request anything about deaths that occurred outside US sovereign territory. All suggestions for further research options gratefully received!
