From Mon Jan 15, 2007 2:00 am to Wed Jan 17, 2007 1:59 am (included)
This is the latest update that I have received from Joe Ostroski pertaining to personal items.
As of today we have received no feedback to our inquiries.
Our call for an outside investigation into these claims has gone unanswered.
We will continue to keep you posted as we find out more.
Put It Above Ground
The following is a summary of the possible DNA match ups and property lists.
Approximately 4600 recovered items within our data bases have links/audit trails to the ME's Office (DNA identification). Those recovered items are contained listed on approximately 1200 Vouchers. This has a great potential to provide a link to positive ID Matches of Victims.
Approximately 1200 Highly Identifiable items of recovered heirloom Jewelry items are still being held by the Manhattan Property Clerks Office. This is according to our (Accurate)data base, NYPD Contracts, and various conversations with the NYPD on this matter.
Over $875,000 in cash was recovered from the WTC Site. Our data base indicates that over $225,000 has yet to be returned to the Victims / Owners. The NYPD claims that only $225,000 was recovered and that only about $25,000 remains. Our accurate data base and audit trails indicate otherwise. We (Sconset) have provided the Internal Investigations Bureau with complete audit lists of every cash transaction which substantiates the $875,000 number.
Many of the items listed above have identified owners such as Karol Keisler (Victim) who was featured on the CBS broadcast. The property that has identified owners includes both Cash and Jewelry.
In October, Sconset was contacted by a Mr. Peter Human (Survivor). He asked our assistance in finding a cherished piece of jewelry that was lost in the WTC disaster. It took less than 20 seconds to perform a complete investigation and location to this item for Mr. Human with Sconset's JCS system that we were contracted to provide the NYPD. We instructed Mr. Human to contact the NYPD on this matter. Mr. Huiman was told that it would take more than two weeks to investigate (vs. 20 seconds with the JCS). Mr. Human was reunited with his property by the NYPD. The NYPD has labeled our JCS ineffective. ( I suppose it provided a too rapid investigation)
