Police to open secret chamber at care home
by UPI

ST. HELIER, Jersey - Authorities on the island of Jersey are preparing to break into a second underground room at a former orphanage where children are believed to have been abused.

The Daily Telegraph reported Monday that police have already found human remains at Haut de la Garenne, where victims said they were lowered into the rooms.

When investigators made a hole in the chamber, police dogs reportedly detected the smell of human remains, the newspaper reported.

In the first chamber, a 12-square-foot room, police found a pair of shackles and line of graffiti scrawled on a wooden post: "Iv been bad 4 years & years."

The second chamber is believed to be larger than the first discovered room, police said.

"It is thought this room could be up to three times the size of the first room and examining it properly in the search for evidence will take some time," a police spokesman told the newspaper.

A hundred victims and 40 witnesses have come forward to Jersey police with claims of physical and sexual abuse at the orphanage from the 1960s to 1980s.
