ACTON, Calif. — A cemetery — which some residents called fake — popped up on an Acton property right in the path of where a high-speed rail was proposed, which raised eyebrows of residents who said they believe the entire thing is a ruse to stop the rail project, NBC4 News reported.

Google Satellite Map images of the property from 2016 did not show any tombstones as of Monday, according to the report. Dale Bybee, the man who owns the property, said the tombstones had been there for some time, and perhaps residents began to notice them because he was clearing brush on the property.

The California High Speed Rail Authority, which has a project for a proposed rail that would go from Palmdale to Burbank, said the routes under consideration — including the one that goes through the "cemetery" — were in the environmental analysis phase. The Authority did not have information on a cemetery in the area, according to NBC4 News.
