The report in today’s New York Times reveals that body parts of some of the 9/11 victims were incinerated at the mortuary at Dover Air Force Base and then released to a landfill.

Families may have assumed that the bodies of their loved ones had become part of the wreckage that mixed with the ground where it all rested.
