Body thought to be Katrina victim
Workers demolishing damaged houses found a body thought to be that of a Hurricane Katrina victim, authorities said.
The body, believed to be an adult, was found in a yard in the devastated Lower 9th Ward, Orleans Parish chief coroner’s investigator John Gagliano said. The body’s gender and identity were unknown.
Gagliano said a pathologist and an anthropologist would examine the remains, and the coroner’s office would consult records to see whether anyone was reported missing at the address.
