More tests being done on bodies exhumed from graves

More DNA samples have been sent for testing on the two bodies pulled out of potter's field in Cumru Township.

The bodies are believed to be two young women from Philadelphia who vanished 45 years ago. They were never identified.

The Berks County coroner said the first round of testing was not successful, but he said enough material has been extracted so that DNA identification should be possible.

The coroner exhumed the bodies in October.
