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 City’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 Towers’ collapse.
To date, authorities have identified the remains of 1,629 victims. Nearly 2,800 people died at the trade center on 9/11.
