A Mass grave of torture victims was uncovered in Jackson, Mississippi, reported The Jackson Telegraph.
“A Mass burial site of many dozens of black men, who had been subjected to brutal torture and [then] murdered, has been found,” FBI spokesman Adrian Cartwright said. “In many cases, body parts are missing; most victims had been shot in the head.”
The mass grave was uncovered when the current owner of the property was doing some digging to make extensive renovations to the house.
“The current occupier was excavating the southern end of the property when he came across some leg bones,” Said Cartwright. “He notified local law enforcement who then called in the FBI once they realized the extent of the number of victims.”
Authorities said it’s still very early in the recovery and identification process, but they guessed the grave was at least 50 years old and contained about 10 bodies.
