The Pentagon released Tuesday that remains of 9-11 victims were dumped into a landfill in Virginia, according to Boston.com.
The remains involved in the dumping were victims from both the crash on the Pentagon and another crash Shanksville, Pa. A report from the Pentagon stated that the number of bodies and identities of such involved are unclear, Boston said.
According to MSNBC, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta found after an Air Force-conducted investigation in December that some remains of U.S. military personnel hadn't been handled "in accordance with procedures."
MSNBC said that, last year, conducted investigations had " found no evidence that anyone intentionally mishandled the remains, but they concluded that the mortuary staff failed to 'maintain accountability' with some remains."
The report said that the remains had been cremated and then incinerated by a biomedical waste disposal contractor before they had been taken to a landfill, Boston.com said.
