Pierce County Hopes To Connect Families With Unclaimed Remains

(Tacoma, WA)  --  Pierce County officials are trying to connect families of 37 deceased people with their cremated remains.  The county Medical Examiner's Office says the ashes are currently being stored in an evidence locker.  Officials say one of the deceased died in 1998, but most of the remains are those of people who have died during the past couple of years.  The Medical Examiner's Office says ashes that go unclaimed will be loaded onto a boat and taken to Puget Sound to be scattered.
