The crash site of the Malaysia Airlines flight has been picked over and family members of the crash victims have no idea where the remains of their loved ones have gone. Some of the corpses lay in body bags in the hot summer sun along the side of a road with one witness saying the damage to the bodies is "very, very bad," according to Yahoo News on July 20.

OSCE (Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe) spokesperson Michael Bociurkiw reports that "the smell of decaying bodies was unmistakable." He was also the witness to report the condition of the corpses being "very, very bad."

According to the Huffington Post, Ukraine has accused Russia and the pro-Moscow rebels of "destroying evidence to cover up their guilt" in the downing of this Malaysian airliner. The site is barely accessible to outsiders today trying to investigate this crash.

"Fox and Friends Weekend" live on Sunday morning reports that body parts are all that is left from the victims among the rubble of the crash. About half of the bodies have been removed to a location that has not been disclosed and some of the bodies remain in bags at the crash site.

Evidence from the crash site would be able to distinguish between the plane suffering an explosion set off inside the plane or from an explosion that came from outside the plane, such as the plane being hit by a missile. That evidence is slowly disappearing today.

The delegation of 24 people who went to the crash site on Saturday were given access to the site, but the rebels limited their movements while they were there. Bociurkiw said they had to be extremely careful while at the site.

The OSCE group consisted of unarmed civilians and they were in no position to argue with these people who were limiting their movements as they were heavily armed, reports Bociurkiw. The crash site was scattered across fields of wheat and sunflowers for about eight miles between two Ukrainian villages.

The rebels had removed bodies and carted them off to the rebel-held city of Donetsk. They did this with the help of "specialist with distinct Russian accents," which only strengthened the reports that the Russian government was involved in this Malaysian plane crash.

These rebels at the site are "seeking large transports" to cart off the fragments of the downed aircraft to an undisclosed location in Russia. This has made any investigation attempt by anyone other than the rebels a difficult pursuit.

The government of the Ukraine has made calls to the Russian government insisting that the Russian rebels allow international experts access to the crash site and everything that was taken from it so that a thorough investigation can be done. A day earlier President Obama had made the same demand to Russia.

As the crash site stands today, Malaysian Transport Minister Liow Tiong Lai reported from a news conference in Kuala Lumpur that: "The integrity of the site has been compromised, and there are indications that vital evidence has not been preserved in place."

196 bodies have been taken by the rebels from the crash site and no one could stop them because the rebels were armed. Pieces of the downed jet are now missing and it looks as if any evidence that could be used to piece what happened to the downed plane has been removed.

The black box, which was found within the rubble is also missing, according to "Fox and Friends Weekend." The families of the victims of this flight are now living through another horror as the remains of their loved ones are unknown today.
