GAINESVILLE, Ga. (AP) - Gainesville leaders will allow a building at the site of a deadly tornado 76 years ago to be demolished. 

A local architect says human remains might still be buried there.

Garland Reynolds Jr. says an archaeological investigation is needed. 

The tornado collapsed the roof of the Cooper Pants Factory, touching off a fire that killed up to 125 workers.
