Work to identify Lac-Mégantic victims ended; 40th victim IDed

The Quebec's coroner's office has identified a 40th victim of the Lac-Mégantic tragedy from last summer.

The body of 30-year-old Jimmy Sirois has been positively identified, and with that, the coroner's office announced it was officially putting an end to efforts to identify the remaining seven victims of the July 6, 2013 train derailment and fire.

The other seven who are still missing have been declared legally dead by the courts.

Discussions are underway on how the human remains which have not yet been identified will be turned over to the community.
