New York City Seeks to Put Names to Unidentified Bodies

WTCTraditionally, New York City officials have preferred not to draw attention to the unidentified bodies that pass through city morgues and receive public burials in mass graves on Hart Island, off the coast of the Bronx.
But on Saturday, city officials, for the first time ever, they said, organized a day geared partly to help identify the roughly 1,200 bodies they have received since about 1990 that they have been unable to identify.
