Salvage workers discovered the crater on Monday and immediately found more body parts and personal items than during earlier searches of the mud and water above the limestone base. Until then, only enough human remains to identify 24 of the 110 people on board had been found and less than half the disintegrated DC-9 plane. Meanwhile, a salvage worker faces up to 10 years' jail after two small pieces of the plane's wreckage were found at his home by FBI agents. Experts said one piece, a circuit breaker, could be important for the investigation of the crash. Michael Gadsden, 35, said he had just wanted "a couple of souvenirs".
