Grave sites discovered in south Huntsville dig

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WAFF) - Diggers uncovered at least six recorded grave sites and five grave markers at a site in the area of Hobbs Road and South Memorial Parkway, according to Huntsville police.

The Tennessee Valley Archeological Research and the Alabama Historical Society were digging at the site to look for evidence of an old cemetery. It is part of an ongoing investigation into whether a historic cemetery was unlawfully disturbed when land was developed without a permit.

Officers say it could take several weeks for them to finish a report on the work.
