More Human Remains Found From 9/11?

Searchers found more bones believed to belong to Sept. 11 World Trade Center attack victims Sunday in manholes and utility areas, areas that were apparently overlooked years ago. Deputy Mayor Ed Skyler, who is overseeing the recovery effort, also said that search officials had identified 12 additional underground areas that will be examined in coming days. Utility and city officials have excavated about five underground areas, yielding more than 100 pieces of human remains, since construction workers discovered bones earlier in the week in a manhole excavated as part of work on a transit hub. The medical examiner’s office said 18 pieces of remains were found Sunday. The bones found thus far range from tiny fragments to recognizable bones from skulls, torsos, feet and hands. Some are as large as whole arm and leg bones. They say that this excavations are secondary to rebuilding. Can you imagine those poor families who never received word about their relatives hearing this? It is seriously sad, but can imagine that they want to rebuild the area and try to eliminate that ghastly reminder.

Pfff! That really shows, once again, that money is the only thing that interests them! Awful and not human at all for the families!!! They already said, at the time, the same day they found the gold that was in one of the undergrounds, they stopped the researchs for other victims... Strange, he? Strange also, this news was only said once on the tv-news, they never repeated it...

Yeah it is strange. I think it is awful dirty of them to make it their priority right now to finish exploring under there to find more. Kloot!

Sorry, it was only to tell you that personally I'm not surprized that they do not want to continue the excavation now, because what they build now will bring them money when it will be finished. So, if they continue the researches, they'll lose time, and time is money. At the time, they found the gold, they stopped the reseaches. Now, it would lengthen the rebuilding. Money, money, money, I really find it disgusting. If you (or anybody else) found / read another believable reason to it, please tell me, it would interest me a lot.

Ick. I feel so bad for those families. I also kind of hope that these "remains" have had a chance to properly decompose...

Yeah I think they are just bones, but I am not sure. I know what you mean though, in a way you do hope that it is just bones and nothing else. How sad indeed!

I pray that this gruesome discovery might bring closure to some people who lost a loved one. What was the last casualty count from 9/11?
