University of South Florida researchers have found the remains of 55 boys in a graveyard at the former Arthur G. Dozier School for Boys in Marianna.

The Arthur G. Dozier School for Boys has been the subject of several investigations amid allegations of child abuse during its 100-year history.

Finally, in June 2011 the school was closed.

The mind can only imagine the cruel an inhumane situations that occurred at that institute.

Found in the Graveyard were: bones, teeth and several artifacts, including belt buckles, zippers and buttons.

The bone and tooth samples are being sent for DNA analysis in order to try and discover their identities.

So far they said 11 families of former Dozier students have been located.

Researchers said they will continue to search for additional unmarked graves on the school grounds.

One this is for sure, that place must be filled with such a supernatural energy.

We found this information on Wikipedia:

Throughout its 111-year history, the school gained a reputation for abuse, beatings, rapes, torture, and even murder of students by staff. Despite periodic investigations, changes of leadership, and promises to improve, the allegations of cruelty and abuse continued. Many of the allegations were confirmed by separate investigations by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement in 2010 and the Civil Rights Division of the United States Department of Justice in 2011.[4] State authorities closed the school permanently in June 2011.

A question to our iHorror fans:

With this location being so close to our iHorror.com headquarters.

Would you want us to go there and stay overnight while filming with some paranormal experts ?  Then post the video for you to watch here on the site?

Or perhaps even live stream the whole night here on the site so you all can see things as we do?

Or do you feel this place is best left alone?
