10/11/2012 IMPORTANT UPDATE ON THE FORENSIC DIG AT THE DOZIER GRAVEYARD BY THE
UNIVERSITY OF SOUTH FLORIDA'S ANTHROPOLOGY TEAM: 49 BURIAL SHAFTS HIDDEN IN THE WOODS


OCTOBER 12, 2012   BREAKING NEWS: 49 GRAVES DISCOVERED:  Erin Kimmerle, Assistant
Professor, USF Department of Anthropology and Richard Estabrook Director, Central Regional Center of the
Florida Public Archeology Network, and their team is now conducting a forensic dig at the Dozier School "Boot
Hill" location. So far they have cleared land and found 49 burial shafts in which Kimmerle called a "conservative
estimate." These were unmarked and hidden in the dense growth for an undetermined time. Kimmerle said it's
clear that the marked cemetery doesn't account for all of the burials." The FDLE did not do a legitimate
investigation considering that at least five burial shafts were found on the first week while Professor Kimmerle
was on the Dozier property. Researchers on Kimmerle's team, having studied many aerial maps of the Dozier
property have found "sufficient evidence" to conclude there's likely another clandestine cemetery on school
property, in a patch of woods on the south side of campus. ( As reported by Ben Montgomery, Waveney Anne

Our Complaint:
The State of Florida allowed boys from 8-17 yrs old to be flogged (whipped with a weighted leather strap with a
wooden handle) for 68 years at the Florida School For Boys aka The Dozier School For Boys. Boys 11-13
received most of the beatings. If a boy ran away and was caught the punishment was 100 lashes. We have
reported numerous times to the press, the Justice Dept., the FBI, Senators and Representatives, the DJJ and the
FDLE that boys went missing and that we believe there are many, many bodies buried on the Dozier property,
including the white side of the complex as well as woods that surround the complex on two sides. A graveyard
has been witnessed on the white side as well as good suspicion that there are other random, shallow graves
inside and outside of the complex. The level of brutality at Dozier stands out as a horrific example of brutality and
the lash that started the day the school opened in 1900. The
overwhelming amount of historical and present
witnesses confirm this to be true.

The Justice Department's Civil Rights Division released a harsh criticism of conditions at the Dozier School For
Boys (now closed) and the Jackson Juvenile Offender Center. The report said the state’s “failed system of
oversight and accountability” likely has resulted in dangerous conditions at youth prisons throughout the state."
Conditions are so severe, the U.S. Department of Justice said, that they violate the Constitution.The DOJ report
link here.

Former Governor, Charlie Crist, called for an investigation by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. This is
the investigative arm of Florida and is not going to find Florida guilty of anything. Their report was a shameful
cover-up.
Go to this link to find out why.  A letter from the DOJ was sent to Governor Scott, serving as a warning
to clean up Florida's juvenile justice system. Since then three institutions have been closed and many people
fired, the most recent misfortune was the
death of Eric Perez.

What the FDLE has done is write a blank check of immunity to any brute that works in the DJJ system. Instead of
sending the message that this will never happen again they have sent the message that this can happen again
and we will defend the abusers.

Someone should be held accountable. A real graveyard and a monument should be built for the remains of these
unknown boys, especially for the boys that may never be found. Bear in mind these were teenagers and pre-
teens. The state of Florida could at least give them a proper burial or release the bodies to their relatives. Surely
that is not too much to ask.
