A 9/11 Victim Is Identified by DNA in 2011

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.

James was identified within the last few days through DNA testing, a spokeswoman said. He worked for the professional services firm Marsh & McLennan Companies, which lost more than 350 employees and consultants that day.
