CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

The Cook County medical examiner's move to post its list of unidentified bodies online has helped one family identify their loved one.

The office says the family of 52-year-old Baldomino Moctezuma called Monday and said they recognized him. Moctezuma died in November, but didn't have any identification on him at the time.

There was some controversy when the medical examiner's office started posting pictures of some dead bodies earlier this month, but the medical examiner says the idea is to bring some peace to families.
