NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Nearly a decade after the Sept. 11 attacks, forensic technicians are still identifying pieces of human remains found in the rubble of the World Trade Center.
The New York City medical examiner’s office announced Thursday that it had successfully matched another set of remains to a 32-year-old man who had been assumed dead in the collapse. Officials declined to release the man’s name.
To date, authorities have identified the remains of 1,630 victims. Nearly 2,800 people died at the trade center on 9/11.
