In 2008, Florida's then-Gov. Charlie Crist ordered a state investigation into allegations by a group of men, known as "The White House Boys," who had came forward with stories of how they were beaten with leather straps by school administrators in the 1960s.
The Florida Department of Law Enforcement issued a report that found 31 boys were buried in the cemetery, although each individual plot could not be identified. That report found that most of the boys had died either in a 1914 fire or from a flu pandemic four years later.
At the time, the law enforcement agency said it could not determine where another 50 boys -- who died at the school as a result of illnesses or accidents -- were buried, blaming poorly kept school records.
FDLE closed the case due to the lack of evidence that anyone had died as a result of criminal conduct, and no charges were filed.
The new findings will undoubtedly lead to speculation that the newly discovered graves are evidence of a generations-long criminal coverup by administrators of the prison.
In a statement to CNN, FDLE said it is aware of the new report.
"In the absence of any additional evidence, we do not anticipate further criminal investigative action," said Keith Kameg, an FDLE communications coordinator.
