On the 14th, through the contact number left in the announcement, a News reporter contacted the relevant staff member, Mr. Qiu. Mr. Qiu told reporter that there are construction needs on the Xiquzhijiang land parcel, so archaeological excavation was conducted before construction. As a result, a large number of corpses were discovered during the excavation. Since the remains could no longer be identified, an announcement was made to identify the remains. “No one has come to claim them yet.”
