Two more 9-11 Victims Identified
By AMY WESTFELDT, Associated Press WriterMon Apr 2, 8:24 PM ET
The city said Monday it has positively identified two more Sept. 11 victims from thousands of unidentified human remains that have been retested in recent months.
The new identifications were made in the past week, said Ellen Borakove, spokeswoman for Dr. Charles Hirsch, the chief medical examiner. The identified remains are from the "initial recovery effort" of victims' remains in the first year after the 2001 terrorist attacks, not from a renewed search at ground zero, she said.
Borakove would not say how many pieces of remains were identified or exactly when and where they were recovered. The names of the newly identified victims also were not released.
The city has been storing more than 10,000 unidentified bone fragments and other human remains, including more than 1,200 found since 2005.
