USF anthropologists prepare to examine graves at Dozier cemetery

A team of anthropologists from the University of South Florida began making preparations Friday to find suspected graves at the now-closed Arthur G. Dozier School for Boys in Marianna.

Thirty-one metal crosses mark a cemetery on the reform school property, but ground-penetrating radar shows other possible burial sites that are unmarked.

The team searched for markers that indicate possible grave sites among the thick underbrush at the Boot Hill cemetery.
