cursed site?

I thought I'd post this on Halloween.

There was a large cemetery relocation project that took place a bit back in the mid-atlantic. Over 3,000 residents were removed to make way for a hospital. Since then the owner of the company has passed away, along with the site's manager/field director, the site's photographer, the lab person/illustrator, and three of the techs. There may be more that I don't know about.   

not Howard Carter type spooky, but still....

Did you know that every single person who worked on Howard Carter's excavation of Tut's tomb is dead?

Pretty spooky stuff.

It was the Cathedral Cemetery in Wilmington DE. I was there for at least 9 months. There were probably 70 techs. Considering the drinking habits of the Lab Director I would be surprised if he was alive. Considering the arsenic and heavy metal content in the burials. I wouldn't be surprised.
