(Newser) – Nearly 10 years after the 9/11 terror attacks, another victim has been identified, reports the New York Daily News. Ernest James, a 40-year-old risk manager who worked at the Marsh & McLennan brokerage, was identified from a DNA sample, the medical examiner announced yesterday. Of the 2,753 people killed in the World Trade Center collapse, only 1,629 have been identified, most of those by DNA evidence. (In other wrenching 9/11 news, more 9/11 cops have now died from cancer than died in the attacks.)
