What will happen to remains of laborers found in Sugar Land?

The bodies of nearly 100 people were found earlier this year in Sugar Land as the property was being prepared for a $59 million Fort Bend ISD school.

Historians believe the unmarked graves are those of imprisoned African American laborers who died more than a century ago.

Once all the bodies are exhumed and studied, officials plan to rebury the remains at a different location.

Some community activists want DNA tests done on the bodies, before they are put in coffins in a cemetery with a memorial.

A lead archaeologist on the site says this discovery changes the history books in Texas.

On the Factor to talk about this is Dr. Gene Preuss from UH Downtown’s College of Humanities and Social Sciences.
