Another Local Graveyard Story

On Thursday, October 29, 2009 in the Tampa Tribune on page 8 in the Metro section there is a story, Body, skull maybe reunited. The next day another news story ran in the newspaper on the front page, After 20 years, skull at rest.

The story involves the Royal Palms Cemetery in Pinellas County (one of our neighboring counties), gravediggers, USF anthropologists, family member, sheriff's officers and more.

This story may become part of some novelists fiction in the future.

There have been other stories concerning graveyards in the Tampa Bay area in recent months. Most have not involved disrespect, but quite the opposite. The earlier blog mentions are about attempts to identify individuals in unmarked grave.
