Bayamon, Puerto Rico - Plaza del Sol

Plaza del Sol Mall is a popular hang out amongst young teens, and it's distinguished by the 3 landmark hills surrounding it. But it holds a dark secret. Before construction, the crew had to destroy and dig through parts of the 3 hills, unlocking what it appeared as a Taino Indian Burial Ground. There they found skulls, human bones and many Taino artifacts, but all of this had to be kept under the table to avoid protests and ultimately, a stop to the project. The Mall was finally built; but some people feel the presence of the old, leering in anger by such disturbance.
