Anthropologists have exhumed 55 bodies at the site of the former Florida School for Boys, the Tampa Bay Times' Ben Montgomery reported yesterday. That's 24 more bodies than the state initially suspected.
The reform school, which went by many names during its 111-year existence, was notorious for its egregious mistreatment of students. Among reported abuses were boys being locked in irons, put in solitary confinement, and raped by the school's employees. It was finally shut down in 2011.
