  • Anderson Cooper isn't amused by Jay Nixon's joke.

CNN's Anderson Cooper spoke with Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon yesterday to find out why the identification and release of Joplin tornado victims' bodies is taking so long. In one case, Cooper said that a family was told it would take two weeks for a family to get in to identify the body of their child.

Nixon told Cooper that help is on the way, and the process should be speeding up. He also told a horribly timed joke about looting. "We're in the Show-Me State, but we're not in the Take-Me State." Cooper wasn't amused. Watch the video after the jump and also see the list of people still missing.


This is the list of people still missing as of 10 a.m. May 27.



The death toll is now at 132, according to the Associated Press.
