Troops Find Grisly Scenes in New Orleans

UPI, Sept. 6

NEW ORLEANS — Troops scouring New Orleans for survivors and victims reported finding at least 40 mutilated bodies in the Convention Center refugee center.

Arkansas National Guardsman Mikel Brooks told the New Orleans Times Picayune many of the dead were elderly, or showed signs of trauma.

“There’s another one in the freezer, a 7-year-old with her throat cut,” he said.
