A final resting place is finally coming for 53 people whose remains have been kept in a metal box for years.
The first set of Native American bones was found almost five years ago by crews building the Jackson Flat Dam Water Supply Storage Facility near Kanab. Over a year’s time, a total of 54 set of bones were found. One set of bones was left undisturbed.
There are still some legal loose ends to tie up, but reburial is expected sometime in the end of May or early June.
