Everyone, note the day that this post is being written: 4 Dec 2006.
Coroner Frank Minyard told the City Council last month that the Michoud area of eastern New Orleans had never been searched for bodies since Katrina and should be investigated as soon as possible.
Katrina made landfall on August 29, 2005. That was 1 year, 3 months, and 5 days ago. After that long, you’d think it was buried under a ton of debris, something like the bodies being found at the World Trade Center, right?
The body was found Wednesday night in a yard at St. Maurice Avenue and North Robertson Street, chief coroner’s investigator John Gagliano said. (emphasis mine)
In a yard. Decomposed to the point that they have to call in an anthropologist to determine the victim’s gender. Their gender.
