Identifying all those who died in the Ermenonville crash was an enormous task because of the general confusion at Orly Airport and the last-minute rush for seats just before flight 981’s departure. The Turkish Airlines passenger manifest contained dozens of inaccuracies: many of the victims’ names were spelled incorrectly and some didn’t appear on the list at all. For at least six weeks the police were not even certain of how many people had died. It took a painstaking inquires into twenty-one countries to produce the full catalog of victims.
