DETROIT (AP) — About 36 fetuses and infants have been removed from a Detroit funeral home, the second facility where remains have been improperly disposed.
Detroit police raided Perry Funeral Home on Friday and found the remains.
Jason Moon of the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs says the remains were found in three unrefrigerated boxes. Also, additional remains were found in a deep freezer. Some of the bodies had dates of death in 2015.
Perry Funeral Home is the second such facility in Detroit where fetuses have been found. Several cremated remains were found by cleaning crews at the former Cantrell Funeral Home where mummified remains of 10 fetuses were discovered last week in a ceiling.
