Are you attributing these 45 to Katrina, Mayet?
Where they confirmed mercy killings because they could not be evacuated?
Where they [the dead bodies and/or in the morgue] there before Katrina hit and were simply left or not removed?

NEW ORLEANS, Sept 12 (Reuters) - The head of the U.S. disaster agency resigned on Monday amid a storm of criticism over Washington's response to Hurricane Katrina as the confirmed death toll from the calamity passed 500, including 45 victims found inside one abandoned New Orleans hospital.
THE toll of Hurricane Katrina deaths rose to 657 overnight after Louisiana confirmed 144 additional deaths.
The state toll jumped as swiftly receding floodwaters enabled rescue workers to get into more areas of New Orleans.
The total number of deaths attributed to Katrina now stands at 423 in Louisiana, 218 in Mississippi, two in Alabama and 14 in Florida, according to officials in the different states.
Katrina's death toll so far stands at 883, with 646 of those in Louisiana, 218 in Mississippi and a total of 19 in Florida, Georgia, Alabama and Tennessee.
Floodwaters continued to recede in New Orleans and appeared confined to the eastern end of the city.
Yet medical experts in New Orleans said they still feared a "second disaster" as returning residents suffered injuries amid the rubble, toppled trees and dangling power lines.

I talked to a friend today that told me that his brother had just got back from New Orleans. He is in law enforcement and says that the situation there is not like it is being told on the news. He says that there are LOTS of bodies that are being found with bullet holes in them. He was doing secutity for the recovery of the bodies there.

BATON ROUGE, Louisiana, Sept 19 (Reuters) - The death toll from Hurricane Katrina climbed to 973 on Monday after Louisiana officials raised the number of confirmed fatalities in that state to 736.
RESCUERS have found a 70-year-old man who had been in his New Orleans house since Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast three weeks ago, but his wife had died, Mayor Ray Nagin said today.
"Yesterday we rescued a 70-year-old man from a home. He had been holed up there. He had water and food. Not a lot," Mr Nagin told legislators in Louisiana's capital Baton Rouge.
"His wife had passed five days earlier. So we were able to rescue him yesterday," Mr Nagin said.
"So the rescue efforts are still going on and we are continuing to recover bodies."
Rescuers found a 76-year-old man in the loft of his flooded home on Friday, 18 days after the storm.
At least 799 have been confirmed dead in Louisiana since the August 29 storm.
The death toll in Louisiana stood at 799 on Wednesday, an increase of 153 since the weekend and nearly 80 percent of the 1,036 deaths attributed to Katrina across the Gulf Coast region. Officials said the effort could last another four to six weeks.
AUTHORITIES have recovered the bodies of 33 more Hurricane Katrina victims in Louisiana, bringing to 1066 the number killed in the storm.

Sure, the government is going to tell the truth. Don't you see?
They bring in 25000 body bags for slightly more than 1000 deaths.
Would it be the first time they were over prepared??
WTC....9/11.....What was the result of that sneak attack in buildings where a million people pass through a day?
Forgive me for doubting the goodness of the American government.
