Grave News: Update on the Alabama Mass Grave

Here's a quick update on yesterday's story about the possible mass grave in Alabama. The Montgomery Advertiser is now reporting that 3 sets of remains, found in a different location than the others, may date to 1977. Apparently a piece of plastic of a type not used in the US until 1977 was found with these remains. Police are investigating but apparently aren't calling it foul play at the moment.

Without seeing the area where the bodies were found it's hard to make a call. This is near the city cemetery, so it's possible that these 3 individuals were buried and then forgotten. That's a pretty common scenario, sadly. Sphere: Related Content
