More Graves Found at School

December 11, 2012 by  

More Graves Found at School, Anthropologists have found evidence of 98 deaths and more graves than previously identified at a now-closed state reform school in the Panhandle, according to a report released Monday.

An interim report released by the University of South Florida in Tampa says the researchers found at least 50 gravesites at the former Arthur G. Dozier School for Boys in Marianna, about 60 miles west of Tallahassee.

That’s 19 more than had been identified by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement in a 2010 investigative report. The university’s researchers also believe there may be even more gravesites than those they’ve found so far.

The FDLE was unable to substantiate or refute claims that inmate deaths were caused by the school’s staff, or that staff members physically and sexually abused them. The school opened in 1900 and was closed last year as a cost-cutting measure.
