40,000 Unidentified Dead in the U.S.: Who Were These People?

by CharlesRutledge in Death, September 7, 2009

The story of 40,000 dead in the U.S. hasn’t been sufficiently reported.

In late May, 2006 the USA Today reported that there were 40,000 dead unidentified bodies in the morgues of the United States. It was frontpage news, though it was not a headline. Many questions about the dead remain unanswered.

Who were they? How did they die? Was foul play involved? If so, why were they killed? What was the cause of death?

When did each of these people die? Where were the bodies found? Were they found in a particular region of the United States?

40,000 people are dead. That’s an extremely large number of people. By comparison, some 58,000 Americans died in the Vietnam conflict. Some 2400 died at Pearl Harbor, and about 3000 died in the attacks on the World Trade Center.

According to Wikipedia, 1,836 people were confirmed dead as a result of Katrina, and another 705 were missing. The number of dead is too disproportionate to have been caused by Katrina.

Why hasn’t the press reported the matter?

Congress has received emails about the situation. One problem with communication is that the security measures implemented around the Capitol have inhibited person-to-person communication between citizens and members of Congress. Some citizens have been stopped at the doors of the Congressional Office Buildings while trying to communicate. They were told that it would be necessary to go to another government office to obtain a pass in order to distribute letters to Congressional staff.
