Police Identify Remains of ET Crash Victims

After six months of investigation, the identification of human remains from the crash of Ethiopian Airlines Flight is completed, Endeshaw Tassew, commissioner of Federal Police Commission, announced early last week. The plane, which carried 157 passengers and flight attendants, nosedived into farmland in Tulu Fara Wereda last March. “The investigation was very challenging,” said Endeshaw. The initial sampling of the remains was done in Ethiopia and then transferred to Cellmark Forensic Services, a UK-based laboratory that was contracted by the government, according to Endeshaw. Experts from Blake Emergency Services, another UK-based company, and from Interpol and the Ethiopian police were involved in preparing DNA samples and fingerprints.
