Experts say many of the bodies found in the floodwaters may never be identified.

(CNN) September 9, 2005;-- In the coming weeks and months, the dead may outnumber the living in St. Gabriel, Louisiana. Some 6,000 people live in this rural town about 70 miles from New Orleans, but 25,000 body bags are waiting.

St. Gabriel, already home to a women's prison and a former leper colony, is where the grisly work of identifying Hurricane Katrina's dead has begun.
