Dozier School exhumation to begin
MARIANNA -- Researchers are in Marianna right now ready to begin digging up bodies buried at the former Dozier School for Boys.
They plan to start the exhumation project on Sunday.
Their goal is to try to reunite the remains with their families.
But not everyone is on board with the idea.
The majority of the people who live in the town of Marianna where the school is located are against it.
They say the past is the past and should stay that way.
If we find remains that have broken bones or fractures, how are we going to determine whether those injuries were inflicted by guards or whether they were delinquent on delinquent".
The researchers have one year to dig up remains, look for additional graves and perform DNA testing.
