Woman seeks dead brother's return from Haiti

A Holbrook woman who lost her brother in the Haiti earthquake is trying desperately to get his body flown back to Spain, where he lived before returning to Haiti.

Alice Mitman says she fears her brother, Yve, and his wife will end up among the nameless corpses buried in mass graves, or be burned.

News 12 Long Island contacted Rep. Steve Israel, who represents Mitman?s district, and case workers from Israel?s office got in touch with the Spanish government. They say they are working together to get the bodies of Mitman?s relatives back to Spain for a proper burial.
