If you're not able to contact the person who set the lock, it's impossible.

If you are able to contact the person who set the lock, it depends on how difficult it is to get them to remove it.

In the event that person is dead, take it, its purchase receipt, and that person's death certificate to a physical Apple Store.

It's impossible to re-set it without the credentials for the account used to lock it. Don't waste your money.

By rights, the pawn shop should probably contact the police and turn it over to them. Actually, they shouldn't have purchased it at all.
