Bodies Still Being Found In New Orleans

News & Politics

On October 3, official body recovery efforts in New Orleans were called off, even though over 100 homes in the Ninth Ward remained unsearched.

The search resumed amid public outcry. But it appears that residents are still returning to find the bodies of their loved ones.

Body collection was subcontracted out to Kenyon Worldwide Disaster Management, a private firm with close ties to the Bush family.

Ah, private sector efficiency--cutting costs by skipping black people's houses.
