LANARK, Scotland ( – The Scottish prosecutors and police have exonerated the Daughters of Charity of criminal activity surrounding an unmarked mass grave of children at this time.

The discovery of a mass grave on the grounds of Smyllum Park Orphanage in Scotland sparked a media frenzy of allegations of wrongdoing and child abuse.

In a statement released Tuesday, the Scottish Crown Office said, “Based on the information currently available, there is no evidence to suggest a crime has been committed or that any deaths require to be investigated.” They have assured the public that they are keeping a watchful eye on the situation and “any allegations of criminality will be thoroughly and sensitively investigated.”
