Here's the a link to the article and a short excerpt:

Inside the Mayans' bone-ridden 'Midnight Terror Cave' where scientists believe children were trafficked from hundreds of miles away to be sacrificed to the gods
An underworld network of caves in Belize may have been used to traffic Mayan children as young as six for sacrifice. Teeth discovered among the thousands of human bones lying in the so-called Midnight Terror Cave have been found to all belong to children aged between six and 14. And chemical analysis suggests they were not originally from the Cayo District, where the cave is located, meaning they may have been brought to the area en masse. Midnight Terror Cave is located to the south of Belmopan near the Mennonite Community of Springfield in the Cayo District of Belize. It was discovered in 2006 and reported to the Institute of Anthropology due to the large number of human remains found in the cave. The California State University then completed a three-year survey of the cave, which ended in 2010. Student Samantha Lorenz is part of a team of experts studying the chemical composition of these remains, including the teeth, in an attempt to learn more about who they belonged to. She told Ben Marks at Collector’s Weekly: 'No one’s from Belize, so that means we have this population of children that was brought in from somewhere else for the purpose of sacrifice.
