Forensic experts have had serious difficulties in identifying the victims for most of them were seriously burned or smashed in the crash.

The July 17 crash was the deadliest in Brazil's aviation history, in which a TAM airlines Airbus A320 crashed into a fuel station and exploded on landing at the Congonhas airport, killing nearly 200 people, including 187 aboard and at least four others on the ground.
