The Associated PressOregon hunts for bodies at ex-asylum seen in 'Cuckoo's Nest'
FILE - This April 19, 2012, file photo, shows copper canisters holding ashes of some of the thousands patients who died long ago at the Oregon State Hospital in Salem, Ore. Oregon will use ground-penetrating radar to search for bodies buried on the campus of the former psychiatric hospital that inspired the book "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest." The Statesman Journal reported Tuesday, May 21, 2019, that the facility had a cemetery but all the 1,500 bodies buried there should have been exhumed in 1913. There's no evidence that any remains were left behind, but some tribes are asking the state to make sure before a housing development is built on the land. (Kobbi R.
