Just weeks before the tenth anniversary of 9/11, the city's medical examiners have used DNA to identify the remains of Ernest James, who was one of the over 350 employees and consultants of the Marsh & McLennan insurance brokerage firm to perish in the North Tower. A total of 2,753 people died at the World Trade Center, but the remains of only 1,629 victims have ever been identified. [NYDN, City Room/NYT]
