    Post World Trade Center Remains to be Interred

    NEW YORK (Aug. 25) - The unidentified remains of more than a thousand people who died in the World Trade Center attacks will be interred at a memorial at the site until science can find a way to identify them.
    More than 12,000 body parts have yet to be identified and they will be stored at the rebuilt site at the requests of many of the victims' relatives, The New York Times reported in Monday editions.
    The remains are to be dried, then individually vacuum-sealed in opaque white pouches. The procedure means memorial designers will not be faced with needing to include a refrigeration or freezer system.
    ''Our job is to inter them and if technology changes in the future, and we have a better chance to identify them, we will have to keep and preserve the remains in such a way that we can use this new technology,'' said Shiya Ribowsky, deputy director of investigation for the city medical examiner's office.
    Since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, the medical examiner's office has recovered 19,936 remains and has tried to match them with the 2,792 missing people. As of last week, 1,271 victims and 12,471 remains had not been identified, the Times said.
    The memorial will also house remains that have not been collected by victims' families.
