The Florida State reform school, notorious for its abuses, is now in the headlines for more than just abusing its guests. Bodies are being discovered and the deaths are referred to as being the most brutal killings of the century. This is mainly because the boys were young and some innocent. Not everyone that stayed at the Dozier school was guilty of a crime but rather simply had nowhere else to go. Some residents around the area where the school was built have other thoughts in regards to the oddities they have witnessed since the school's closure.
Shadows, colorless shapes, and eerie sightings were also present within the area the school was located. No one knows the whole story - and we may never have an ending to the mysterious happenings within the school's walls - but there is one thing for sure, something evil caused the boys to be murdered.
Boot Hill is the location where the bones are being discovered. Some of the shallow graves held children as young as six to 10 years old. No one can say they all died of natural causes when bullet holes were left in the backs of their skulls. No honorable burial, no notification to their next of kin or anything that a normal death would require.
This story is fiction based on true recollections, events or whichever word you might want to use. The author doesn't claim to know the whole story - no one really does - but what she does do is make it come full circle, so that an ending could be had.
