3 more Hurricane Ike victims raises toll to 67

Law Reviews     updated  2008/09/27 03:47


Three more bodies were discovered over the weekend in areas of Texas ravaged by Hurricane Ike, increasing the storm's toll to 67 deaths nationally.

The discoveries in Galveston and Orange counties raised the toll in Texas to at least 32.

Volunteers and fishermen found the bodies while searching through storm debris. The body of Greg Walker, who had been missing since Sept. 13, was discovered in the tree-line of a levee in Orange County, about a mile away from where his truck was discovered last Tuesday. Walker had called 911 for help after he got caught in Ike's storm surge, said Orange County sheriff's Lt. Jimmy LeBoeuf.

On Saturday, fishermen found the body of a white male on Goat Island off the Bolivar Peninsula, according to the Galveston County Medical Examiner's Office. The body of a white female was found on Pelican Island, the medical examiner's office said.

Neither of those victims was immediately identified but autopsies were planned.

More than 1 million people evacuated the Texas coast due to Ike. The storm caused flooding and deaths as far away as Pennsylvania and Illinois.
