Permit to Exhume Bodies Granted

Aug 6, 2013

The Florida Cabinet voted Tuesday to allow University of South Florida researchers to exhume bodies at the now-closed Arthur G. Dozier School for Boys, the Tampa Bay Times reports. The secretary of state had turned down the request, but Attorney General Pam Bondi took up the cause. The research team wants to find out whose bodies are buried at the old reform school, allegedly the site of widespread beatings.
