NatGeo Program "Decrypters" Investigates Washington Park Body Snatchers

You are probably aware the Washington Park near Music Hall in Downtown Cincinnati is undergoing a massive renovation.  The park covers what had once been an early Presbyterian/Episcopalian Cemetery.  When the park was initially constructed in the mid-nineteenth century, graves were moved to other cemeteries in the city.

When construction on this project began in August 2010, additional human remains were uncovered.  You can read about this and related stories here.  Interestingly for us, the story was intriguing enough to the National Geographic Channel to include the results of an investigation in their series "The Decrypters."  The program will air on NatGeo on April 19th at 8:00 PM.

I will be setting up my DVR as the showing coincides with our next Chapter Board Meeting.  Thanks to Jeff Herbert, Chapter Vice-President, for making us aware of this exciting program, so relevant to Cincinnati history.
