On the Radio
Researchers from USF have excavated the remains of 55 people from a graveyard at the closed Dozier School for Boys in Marianna, Florida. We’ll take a deeper look at the investigation on this week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7, including how objects as small as coffin nails and shirt buttons may make a difference in identifying those remains. We’ll also hear from a former Dozier student and from a woman who hopes this will bring her one step closer to finding her brother, who was possibly buried at Dozier seven decades ago.
