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.
