Debunking Dome Deaths

During the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, rumors were flying about how may people had been murdered in the Superdome. Oyster takes the rumors to task with his post Why the Superdome is a Sacredome not a Thunderdome

Here's a piece of the post:

that FEMA's deputy coordinating officer estimated there were 200 homicide "bodies" between the Convention Center and the Super Dome. That when FEMA's mortician crew arrived at the Super Dome with refrigerated trucks to collect the bodies, they found precisely NONE in the arena. Overall, the Dome's dead numbered six bodies: a heart attack victim, three natural deaths, a suicide and a drug overdose.
