215 bodies found behind a Mississippi jail, families are outraged

Some 215 bodies were found in a pauper’s cemetery in Raymond, Mississippi. Located just outside of Jackson, the graves are marked with metal rods and numbers. The gravesite is intended for people who have no known family, but according to relatives, they were never contacted by officials.

Civil rights attorney Ben Crump is representing the families of Marrio Moore, Dexter Wade, and Jonathan Hankins, who were all buried in the cemetery without the knowledge of their families.
