Unburied fetuses, other bodies found in second funeral home

Detroit police find 63 fetuses in funeral home amid probe

Police and license inspectors found the remains of 63 fetuses or infants - some of whom died three years ago - at Perry Funeral Home on Friday, the Detroit Police Department said.

The funeral home was also accused of several licensing and financial violations, the agency said.

The incident comes about a week after the badly decomposed bodies of 11 babies were found hidden in a false ceiling at a different funeral home in the MI city.

"I've never seen anything (like this) in my 41 and a half years", James Craig, Detroit's police chief, said. An anonymously written letter led MI inspectors to find badly decomposed remains of 11 infants hidden in a ceiling compartment of the shuttered Detroit funeral home.

Some of the 63 sets of remains found at Perry Funeral Home on Friday were fetuses or infants that died in 2015, Licensing and Regulatory Affairs said.

Absent any statutory exception, the failure or refusal to properly supervise the final disposition of a dead human body after agreeing to provide the services of a funeral director within 60 days of receiving the body is a criminal violation under Section 160c of the Michigan Penal Code.

It's the second funeral home in the area found to be harboring the bodies of deceased infants and still borns in the last few weeks.

The cremains of four people were found, this week, by someone working on the former funeral home.

The funeral home allegedly embalmed the dead bodies of the fetuses and infants without first being given permission to do so by a relative of the deceased.

Details about why the remains were being stored at Perry Funeral Home and the former Cantrell Funeral Home, or whether the cases are in any way related, weren't immediately available. Nine bodies were found in a cardboard box, two were found in caskets.

Cantrell did not respond to CNN's request for comment.

"We had federal state, local law enforcement and prosecutors in the room", Craig said.
