From Thu Jan 25, 2007 2:00 am to Sat Jan 27, 2007 1:59 am (included)
|Three more remains were uncovered from the haul road at the site and one additional remain was uncovered at 11 Water Street.
We have heard nothing back from the Mayor’s Office in regards to Community Board 1’s Resolution but he will probably ignore that as well.
It has become apparent that the haul road was not constructed from “fresh fill” but no one seems to be following up on that as well.
We have been unsuccessful in our attempts to get footage from the 24 hour video cam that was installed early on at the site.
We had hoped to view footage of when the haul road was constructed.
We also find it very odd that no other than human remains have been uncovered or are they just not reporting them.
We met with Senator Clinton’s Office today and she is still in full support of brining in JPAC.
Her office also promised to follow up on the personal items issue with the NYPD Property Department.
Even though we are interested in the alleged missing $750,000 and over 1,000 personal items we are even more concerned about why the NYPD is not using the built in tracking system to identify remains.
For those who are not aware.
When items were recovered with human remains, (not to get too graphic a ring with a piece of a finger bone) each was given a number.
These types of items were linked in the database.
If a person game in to claim the ring, by using the inventory system the companion human remain would also be identified.
The problem is the NYPD is not using this information.
It is very possible that personal items have been picked up but the human remains were left behind.
The developer of the tracking database has all of the information but the NYPD will not say why they are not using it.
This same information could also be used for audit purposes to prove or disprove the allegations of missing funds and personal items.
Just like the recovery effort the questions continue to go unanswered.
We can’t even get the media to ask the questions.
We have written to the Governor as well and will follow up with the Attorney General.
We still have heard nothing back from Councilman Gerson and his resolution supporting JPAC has yet to be introduced into the City Council.
Maybe a few phone calls will help.
