(St. George, UT)  --  Leaders from the Paiute Indian Tribe of Utah and history experts are suggesting that bodies of Paiute children are buried at a former boarding school site in southern Utah. It's unclear how many children lie under the school grounds in Panguitch, but they suspect at least 12 bodies.

Paiute leaders say that the boarding school would take children and force them into labor. Utah State University is planning to investigate the site to see how many bodies are in unmarked graves.
