  • Police 11 baby bodies found in ceiling of closed Detroit funeral home

Authorities found the remains of 11 infants and stillborn children hidden in the ceiling of a former funeral home in Detroit, Michigan, police said Friday.

The bodies had been hidden inside the former Cantrell Funeral Home. He says officials have determined the names for some of the infants and would try to contact the families.

Inspectors of the Michigan Department Licensing and Regulatory Affairs received the letter at approximately 2:30 p.m. Friday, and inspectors went to the Cantrell Funeral Home on Detroit's east side, Bowser said.

LARA had told the business to reassign prepaid contracts or refund the people who's requests they could not carry out. "The police responded, they removed the box and the casket from the false ceiling, or the lowered ceiling, and they opened them up and obviously they discovered the remains".

Also in April, state regulators suspended the funeral home's license and suspended the individual mortuary science license of the manager, Jameca LaJoyce Boone, according to the state website. They found 20 bodies, seven in caskets, three in cremation containers and 10 bodies lying on tables, left to decompose. Investigators are now working to identify the remains. Investigators found bodies not stored properly, including at least least two that reportedly appeared to be covered in mold.

It never reopened. Lately, there had been talk of a new owner turning it into a community center, the Detroit News reported.

'If I had them in the funeral home then my funeral home wouldn't smell fresh, ' he previously said.

The successor to the closed funeral home operates as Cantrell Funeral Services, the paper said. Bowser added that police do not know why the bodies were stowed in the ceiling.

The Cantrell Funeral home was shut down this past April due to several violations and "deplorable, unsanitary conditions". "It's very unfortunate and they definitely need to find out who put them there".
