Still finding bodies.

Reuters AlertNet :
"Coroner's investigator Orrin Duncan said more bodies are being found each week as the pace of home demolition picks up in the Lower Ninth Ward, a mainly African-American community that was hammered by a torrent when the levee that held back the city's Industrial Canal breached after the Aug. 29 storm.

He is still not used to it.

'It affects me. It's my home,' the 35-year-old said. 'It definitely affects me, thinking that they didn't search.'

The bodies on Tupelo are too decomposed to immediately determine their gender, he said. They are darkened, stiff, vaguely human in form, anonymous."
