Some of the eleven people found dead last week in a railroad car may find their final resting place in Iowa. The work of identifying the eleven is slow, partly because the bodies found by workers preparing the cars for harvest had been there a long time…they’re estimating June and partly because, as they’re presumed to be illegal aliens who were trying to enter the country, they carried little identification. Mexico has confirmed the identity of two, and another two have been I-D’d by the government of Honduras. Iowa governor Tom Vilsack met this week with Jose Cuevas the Mexican Consul in Omaha, and said any of the remaining individuals who don’t wind up being positively identified may be buried in Iowa.
