Joplin families say its taking too long to identify storm victims

JOPLIN Families of those who died or are presumed dead in the Joplin tornado are frustrated by what they say is a slow, confusing process of identifying victims and notifying their relatives.

Their concerns prompted the Jasper County Coroners Office on Thursday to say some family members would be allowed access to the morgue on Friday.

The state has called in a federal disaster mortuary team to help organize the process of identifying the dead, which remained unchanged at 125 on Thursday. The Missouri Department of Public Safety also announced that the list of missing people from Sundays EF5 tornado has been pared to 232.

The list of missing includes 12 residents of Greenbriar Nursing Home, which was reduced to a pile of rubble. The list also includes a family of five people: Allen and Brittany Merritt and three young children. The missing range in age from 96-year-old Wilma Wolfe to 1-year-old Hayze Howard.

Gary England, of Neosho, Mo., is almost certain his brother and his brothers friend are dead, although both are on the missing list.

1. I gotta say that Anderson is a little off on this one.
The fellow being interviewed seemed to be on the task. How does Cooper expect people to go into the morgue shopping mall of body parts, and methodically pick out their loved ones without going nuts and becoming another problem?. I do think that people should be able to get a picture with identifying marks to the morgue so that the process could be streamlined where possible. The Police officers in the field however, seem to be full of themselves. Enough said.
