Finding the Mass Grave
Upon seeing the following article from the Washington Post I was struck with an urge to help in any way I could. As an investigator into the paranormal, I knew my outreach to the Archeology team wouldn’t likely be met with much success. To my surprise, the Chair of the Committee was open to our data and findings. I began an effort to recruit trained metal detecting experts from the great State of Oklahoma. Justin Finley of the Oklahoma Metal Detecting club answered the call, and technicians drove in from all over the State on November 9th.
Below is a timeline of events to get you caught up to where we are. I’m happy to report we have developed several locations in Oaklawn Cemetery that could be possible locations for the mass graves based on hits the technicians got. We do not dig in the ground, only running equipment over the surface, and we are cautious not to walk over the graves.
We are looking for more technicians to volunteer to find our lost Oklahomans that vanished on those horrible May 31 and June 1, days in 1921. Please email me via the Contact page if you have a metal detector, experience using it, and free time on the weekends.
On October 18th, 2019, I penned the following email to the Archeology team searching for the lost graves:
