Florida researchers have gotten the green light to exhume graves at the former Dozier School for boys.
Records show no burial records for 22 of the nearly 100 who died at the Dozier School for boys. Former students say these deaths came at the hands of abusive administrators, but state investigations show no evidence of that.
State leaders say despite a tarnished and disputed past, they must acknowledge the situation to move forward.
10 families have been identified that they have descendants who are buried there.
Many are seeking the bodies of their loved ones so they can be buried properly in family cemeteries.
