This map shows the location of the desecrated burial site near Eagar.

Bones -- including skulls, ribs, femurs, jaws, and fingers -- from at least 10 ancient adults and adolescents were ripped from their graves, broken and scattered by bulldozers and backhoes. The devastation occurred in late April 2011 when the Arizona Game and Fish Department started construction on a public fishing pond. Read the full story by Monica Alonzo.
