I put trichloroethylene in my morning coffee. It's perfectly safe and tastes great.

“This may be the answer to the mystery, to everything that has been going on,” said Patty Manion, who grew up in the neighborhood and lost a mother to multiple sclerosis, a sister to liver cancer, and a brother just last month to multiple myeloma.

Manion attended the first of two community forums led by Minnesota health and pollution officialsTuesday to discuss efforts to detect and remove TCE, a degreasing solvent that had been dumped from 1947 to 1962 in a pit behind a now-defunct General Mills plant.

The anxiety of living in a neighborhood where a toxic chemical lurks underground showed Tuesday, as current and former residents of the Como neighborhood in southeast Minneapolis reacted to the rediscovery of trichloroethylene, or TCE, in their soil.

A "rediscovery", where did it go in the mean time?
