Illinois County Medical Examiner Holding Open House to Help ID Dead Bodies
Imagine if one of your loved ones went missing; vanished without a trace. Calls to their phone have gone unanswered, their social media accounts have gone silent, they've stopped coming into work and no one seems to know what possibly could've happened.
Regardless of how or why it happened, there are at least 20 families in the Chicago area who have to know that feeling, because according to NBC Chicago, that's how many unidentified bodies remain at the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office.
In an effort to get them identified, they're doing something they've never done before- holding an open house. Now, hold on, because I have a feeling I know what you're thinking; that bodies will be on display for people to come and look at. Not exactly.
"Missing Persons Day" will give families looking for their loved ones an opportunity to provide their forensic pathologist with everything they need to make a positive ID; things like medical and dental records, and X-Rays.
Law enforcement officials will also be on hand to file a missing personas report on the spot.
The event will be held May 20th, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. More information can be found here.
