    WEST PALM BEACH—
    The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office is going underground to solve cold cases.
    Detectives and the Medical Examiner's Office have started digging up unidentified bodies that were buried before the widespread use of DNA. Samples of DNA will be taken from the skeletons and put it in the FBI's DNA database to look for matches.
    Working with a $40,000 federal grant, the Sheriff's Office is unearthing 15 bodies to determine whether identifications can help close the cases, which are from 1974-1999. Three are homicides victims; the rest were found in canals, sugar cane fields and the ocean.

    Pembroke Pines-based Missing Children International Ministries is working with the Sheriff's Office to bring closure to families who have had questions for decades.
