You don't say

Workers digging up land find human remains. Seems like something fairly newsworthy, right? Especially if the number of bodies is in the hundreds.

Yeah, except when the bodies are found while relocating a graveyard that contained mass grave plots, potentially for yellow fever victims.

Sorry, but when you're excavating a graveyard, you don't get to make a big deal out of finding human remains. In fact, it would be newsworthy if you DIDN'T find any bodies. The simple fact that bodies were found pretty much means that the land was used for the exact purpose designated. That would be like people complaining about a pet store smelling like animals.

Now, if the new construction ends up having strange happenings, including attacking trees and people vanishing into the television, then we've got a story.
