TULSA, Okla. -

Crews will continue their search for possible mass graves related to the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre July 15.

The search began Monday morning and after two days, the team is shifting south in hopes to have a break through in their dig.

On July 14 it was announced they would be expanding south partly because archaeologists said they weren't finding any indicators. Non-human skeletal remains were found including a cows tibia and ribs.

The dig will be broadcast live on the 1921 Graves' Facebook page.
