27 possible graves found on FL reform school grounds

27 possible clandestine graves were reportedly discovered last month by cleanup crews on the grounds of Florida's highly-controversial shuttered Dozier Reform School for boys.

A contractor hired to clear a fuel storage site discovered with the use of ground-penetrating radar quote "27 anomalies interpreted as possible graves." The school in Marianna, which was closed in 2011, was plagued by decades of allegation of brutality, sexual abuse and even death.

In 2013, 55 bodies were dug up from unmarked graves, and if confirmed as the remains of youths from that detention facility, it would bring the total number of campus burials 82.

Last month's discovery was made just several hundred feet from another burial site.

It is unknown just how many boys -- most of them African-American -- died or disappeared from the reform school.

But the 2013 exhumation alone was well above the number of burials reported in official records.

The Florida Senate formally apologized in April 2017 to victims of the school.
