EVERETT, Wash. - Members of the medical examiner's office in a Washington county devastated by a mudslide work around the clock to identify bodies. Of the 29 sets of remains delivered so far just one is still a mystery.
Journalists on Wednesday were given a tour of the Snohomish County office in Everett and told about the difficult task of identifying bodies from the March 22 disaster.
Medical examiners have worked with detectives to match human remains with missing people.
Spokesman Ed Troyer said all but one man have been identified. The victim doesn't match reports of those listed as missing.
Although 29 people are confirmed dead, officials so far have released the names of only 25.
