    Post Report: Thousands of unidentified human remains at coroners' offices

    WASHINGTON (AP) - Business has been backing up at the offices of the nation's coroners and medical examiners.

    A government report says they receive about 4,400 unidentified human remains on average annually but about 1,000 typically remain unidentified after a year.

    Overall, there were more than 13,000 unidentified human remains on record at those offices as of 2004, the latest year for which there's data.

    Cleveland had the coldest case, dating to 1900.

    Can you imagine how many might be cold case murders or missing persons?

    Multiply that by the extended families that may not know where their family member is or what has happened to them. Really sad.
    Some people try to turn back their odometers.
    Not me! I want people to know why I look this way.
    I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.

    Don't hold hate in your heart, it takes up too much room
