When they say “Bodies were recovered and taken from scene” of Kobe Bryant crash, what state would the bodies be in?

Would they have collected dust? Teeth? Charred arms and legs? How are they able to recover the “bodies” if they were in an explosion. I just thought in an explosion people were cremated essentially because of all the fire but maybe not?

    Some body parts were probably still identifiable, but the strong impact and blazing fire after damaged the bodies beyond identification. But, firefighters and investigators are more likely to remove vital mechanical parts first for examination. The body parts are also scattered over a large area, and a lot of the bodies are in small pieces. In a plane or helicopter crash, metal on impact gets sent flying everywhere, and bodies get sliced and diced on impact. Then, the fire does most of the damage to the body parts. Sometimes, however, bodies are thrown out of the aircraft on impact, with much of the body still intact.

    There would probably be intact bones, and some charred flesh and limbs. When a body is cremated, there are still relatively large chunks of bone. They are sent through a processor to be ground into a powder. They would have collected what they could of the remains, and there will probably be autopsies to determine which remains are of which individual.

    Some parts may have been cremated instantly but it takes more than an explosion to do that to bones and teeth. Also the explosion may well have blown parts outward from the source of the fire. There would have been parts found.

    California I believe is the place they ought to be. So they loaded up the hearse and moved to Beverly, Beverly Hills.
