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

Police are investigating after authorities found nine badly decomposed bodies inside a box and two inside a casket, all hidden in a false ceiling at the former Cantrell Funeral Home, Detroit police Lieutenant Brian Bowser told reporters.

Police have found the decomposed remains odecomposed remains of 11 babies in the ceiling of a closed funeral home in Detroit.

Inspectors cited decomposing remains that were covered in what "appeared to be mold" stored in an unrefrigerated garage, according to a press release from the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs.

According to The Detroit News, eight bodies were found in a cardboard box and three others were found in bin bags inside a casket, all concealed in a compartment in the ceiling.

The bodies of 11 bodies of babies have been found hidden in a closed funeral home in Detroit, Michigan.

Construction workers made a gruesome discovery as they worked to transform a funeral home into a community centre on Friday.

"Obviously they had knowledge", he said.

"If I had them in the funeral home then my funeral home wouldn't smell fresh ... so yes they are embalmed and serviced we put them in the garage", Cantrell said at the time.

LARA shut down Cantrell Funeral Home in April for multiple violations including the improper storage of embalmed bodies, two of which were in an advanced stage of decomposition.

The department suspended the establishment's license.

Police ordered a search of the building to ensure there are no additional bodies inside. That suspension order remains in effect as does our investigation.
