Researchers, Sen. Nelson, to meet on reform school

TAMPA , Fla. (AP) - Researchers from the University of South Florida will meet with U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson to discuss the excavation of the graveyard at a former reform school on the Panhandle.

The meeting will be held Tuesday at Nelson's Tampa office. According to Nelson, the researchers will share what they have found at the Arthur G. Dozier School for Boys.

The USF researchers will also talk about information on DNA testing.

They will also reveal the first facial composite of one of the sets of remains excavated from the site.

Some former students from the 1950s and 1960s have accused employees and guards at the school of physical and sexual abuse, but the Florida Department of Law Enforcement concluded after an investigation that it couldn't substantiate or dispute the claims.
