Who owns the dead?

by Jay D. Aronson | 23 September 2016
Category: Other Books
Synopsis
After September 11, with New Yorkers reeling from the World Trade Center attack, Chief Medical Examiner Charles Hirsch proclaimed that his staff would do more than confirm the identity of the individuals who were killed. They would attempt to identify and return to families every human body part recovered from the site that was larger than a thumbnail. As Jay D. Aronson shows, delivering on that promise proved to be a monumentally difficult task. Only 293 bodies were found intact. The rest would be painstakingly collected in 21,900 bits and pieces scattered throughout the skyscrapers' debris. This massive effort - the most costly forensic investigation in U.S. history - was intended to provide families conclusive knowledge about the deaths of loved ones. 'Who Owns the Dead?' tells the story of the recovery, identification, and memorialization of the 2,753 people killed in Manhattan on 9/11.
