The Knoxville News Sentinel profiles the mass grave research project being conducted the Forensic Anthropology Center. For the next three years, scientists will monitor fresh burial sites made at the center from the sky, from the ground, through sampling and in different light spectrums to determine if the mass graves can be detected from afar. If the remote sensing technology they plan to use works, it could mean huge gains in the ability to uncover clandestine graves around the world and to prosecute the killers.
