Construction workers carrying repairs of a road in Okół, South Poland, unearthed bones of numerous individuals that were buried together in a mass grave.
The mass grave is said to contain remains of 11 individuals. Forensic investigators that were called to the site established that the remains possibly date to the times of World War II, but they might be also much older, dating to the 18th century. At the present time no causes of death and other information concerning circumstances of these individuals’ death are disclosed. Local prosecutor’s office is going to determine whether these remains are archaeological in nature or will be subject to a criminal investigation.
