Unidentified remains to return to Sept. 11 site

May 6, 2014
Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) — The unidentified remains of those killed at the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001 are set to be moved to a repository at Ground Zero.

The remains will receive a NYPD and FDNY escort when they travel from the medical examiner's office on Saturday.

The move is renewing a more than decade-long debate among grieving family members about the best resting final place for their loved ones.

Some don't feel the repository, which is in the same building that houses the National September 11 Memorial Museum, is an appropriate setting for the 7,930 unidentified remains.

Others are happy that they will get "back to the site."

The museum opens to the public May 21.

The decision to move the remains was first reported by The New York Times.
