A gift shop in the National Sept. 11 Memorial & Museum in New York City has angered some family members and others, who say it cheapens the tragedy of what happened that day.
"To me, it’s the crassest, most insensitive thing to have a commercial enterprise at the place where my son died," Diane Horning told the New York Post. She and her husband, Kurt, never received the remains of their 26-year-old son Matthew, who died in the attack.
About 8,000 unidentified human remains are stored at the museum, making it a burial crypt of the missing.
"Here is essentially our tomb of the unknown. To sell baubles I find quite shocking and repugnant," she told the Post. Horning said she also objects to a cafe at the museum.

A gift shop there can go wrong pretty fast.
To date, a few arrests have been made (none by the FBI). As of May 2014, no one has yet been prosecuted.
