Media Release

WTC FAMILIES FOR PROPER BURIAL, INC. WOULD LIKE TO ISSUE THE FOLLOWING STATEMENT CONCERNING THE LMDC’S MISTREATMENT OF THE HUMAN REMAINS FROM THE SEPTEMBER 11TH DEAD:


WTC Families for Proper Burial, Inc. deplores the LMDC’s disregard for the human remains of the September 11th dead. Four years ago the LMDC said that the Deustche Bank building (130 Liberty Street) was cleared of all human remains. In recent months, almost five years later, nearly 700 fragments were found, with the expectation of finding hundreds more. Elected officials and families asked that JPAC be included in the search for human remains, but the LMDC arrogantly states it does a more thorough job than JPAC. If so, then why are we still discovering remains five years after the victims died? What possible reason is there for rejecting additional expert help? Why are they focusing only on the roof? Experts and experienced volunteers agree that the gash, cooling towers, louvered areas and other floors certainly will yield shockingly substantial remains? Contrary to an official City statement that, “The LMDC and OCME have developed protocols, which were established in conjunction with family members…,” many family members do NOT approve of these protocols. Our concerns and recommendations have been summarily dismissed as has the experienced fire fighter/recovery worker who discovered a human scalp, complete with hair, tissue and bone at the Deutsche Bank building.

The City continues to show flagrant disrespect for our American heroes and civilians killed in the worst attack on our nation. They have bulldozed remains into the Fresh Kills Garbage dump, have left remains to languish and be further degraded near the WTC site and have denied all of us the solace of treating the dead with the respect and dignity they deserve. This must stop.
