In this episode of FBI Retired Case File Review, SSA Richard Marx reviews the FBI Recovery Team he lead at the Fresh Kills Landfill on Staten Island, where a multi-agency team carefully sifted through tons of World Trade Center debris to recover criminal evidence and the remains and belongings of the victims of September 11. The work at Fresh Kills, miles from Ground Zero and closed to the general public, is an important part of the 9/11 story most people don't know about. From September 12, 2001 to August 9, 2002, Richard was in charge of the site, along with New York Police Department Inspector James Luongo and New York Bureau of Waste Disposal Deputy Director Dennis Diggins. During the 11-month operation, the forensic recovery effort sifted the 1.8 million tons of World Trade Center debris and recovered over 4,500 human remains and over 75,000 personal effects and processed over 1,300 vehicles.

SSA Richard Marx is currently assigned to the Evidence Response Team Unit at the FBI Laboratory, Quantico, VA. He has been involved in support efforts following many of the mass casualty events and disasters both domestic and abroad that have occurred during his nearly 25 years in the FBI.
