Some 2,750 people died at the World Trade Center in the Sept. 11 attacks, but remains of only 1,634 people have been identified.
A total of 18 pieces that might be human remains were found in debris from around the World Trade Center, according to a published report.
Police told 1010 WINS that the remains were found by a person in a row boat Tuesday night.
Police said the remains were hidden about four years ago. An autopsy and dental record comparison conducted on April 4 confirmed Kimberly Adler’s identity.
All bodies were recovered, but some unidentified remains are buried at a gravesite at Brooklyn’s historic Green-Wood Cemetery.
The relatives of victims of the 9/11 attacks have lost their bid to get proper burial for material taken from the WTC site because it could contain the ashes of victims.
A distraught family demanded answers Wednesday after thieves vandalized a Long Island cemetery. Suffolk County Police say a group of thieves broke into a mausoleum, stealing the remains of a woman who died 12 years ago.
