Louisiana Nixes Ashes From Ebola Victim

Louisiana Attorney General Buddy Caldwell says he will seek a temporary restraining order to stop the incinerated belongings of Dallas Ebola victim Thomas Eric Duncan from being brought to a Louisiana landfill. The items include linens, carpets, and bedding from Duncan’s apartment. Six truckloads of what Caldwell called “potential Ebola-contaminated material” were burned at a facility in Port Arthur, Texas, on Friday, the attorney general said. The ashes are to be brought to a hazardous-waste landfill in Louisiana, but Caldwell is trying to stop that from happening. There’s no evidence that doing so would spread the disease, but Caldwell’s office is completing an application to seek a restraining order and expects to file it Monday morning.
