    And plus, the heat is causing the bodies to what's the word? You know, making them unidentifiable or tough to identify the longer they leave it.

    Decompose. Its not the best conditions for the body and by the time there recovered it'll be tough and awful for the fmilies to make an accurate ID visually.

    Must be awful. I mean, my mum was getting a bit worried when she couldn't get hold of me on thursday, because I was at Russel Square. That was only for about 30 minutes. To think that these people have been feeling that for days, it's awful!

    I lay awake unable to sleep last night.

    It was after reading about the experiences of a copper in the underground. He walked past what he thought was a pile of clothing, only to hear a cry for help. The clothes were infact a women who'd had both her arms and legs blown off. He believes she later died on the concourse.

    R.I.P.

    How on earth can the scum who did this square what they are doing with religion? What is more astounding is the number of them involved, surely tens of thousands worldwide who are prepared to carry out such acts.

    I dearly hope these people aren't British citizens. It's academic for the dead, the injured and the bereaved but its even more horrifying to think people who've been raised in our society can attack us like dogs.

    One of my close friends still has a work colleague missing. The police have unoffically told her parents and boyfriend that she is dead - killed on the Piccadilly Line.

    Actually, if the bodies are in bad condition, the investigators may have families identify loved ones that don't have ID based on clothing or jewelry. Of course, insurance companies will probably require DNA tests on the bodies, as well, so that may also spare families from having to ID based on the body itself.

    The bodies will be in a horrific condition - some are still down on the Piccadilly Line - it was 60 degrees F down there during the relative coolness of last week - yesterday and today have been schorchers here in central London...

    Plus you can only make a positive ID based on a positive family ID or forensics. You can't give a positive ID based on jewellery/tattoos/etc. All the police can do is to tell the family that it is highly probably that their loved one is dead.

    Like I said, they'll do either DNA tests or use dental records for positive identification, but, in cases such as this, they normally will allow families of missing people to examine recovered jewelry or possessions, as it will give them some closure before the definitive tests have been run.
