Over 70 body parts from 9/11 victims were found in 2010.
Could it be that more remains in 2011 have been found? The NY Medical Examiner does not make it 100% clear if these were body fragments from previous recovery efforts in 2010 or 2006; or if perhaps more fragments have been found in 2011. Here is the latest from CBS New York:
Forensic technicians have identified another set of human remains found in the rubble of the World Trade Center, nearly a decade after the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
The office of New York Cityâ€™s medical examiner announced Tuesday that it had successfully matched a set of remains to 40-year-old Ernest James, who had been assumed dead in the Twin Towersâ€™ collapse.
To date, authorities have identified the remains of 1,629 victims. Nearly 2,800 people died at the trade center on 9/11.
