Another Katrina Victim Found in New Orleans

From Scout:

I just never thought it would be possible in America that nearly a year after a disaster we would still be finding bodies. There are stilll 144 people missiing in Louisiana. From WWL….

Eleven months after Hurricane Katrina hit, firefighters broke through a back door of a destroyed home filled with debris and furniture and found skeletal remains.

The remains were found yesterday in a home in eastern New Orleans. The discovery was made after the Louisiana Family Assistance Center in Baton Rouge received information from a woman’s son who said he believed she was still in her house.

Chief coroner’s investigator John Gagliano says DNA tests will be used to identify the remains.

With the help of a search dog, authorities found the bones under a pile of debris in a front bedroom.
