Criminal investigation underway into closed Cantrell funeral home

Detroit Babies' remains found in second funeral home

Detroit Babies' remains found in second funeral home

The funeral home on Mack Avenue in Detroit was shut down in April after the state department of licensing and regulatory affairs found decomposing moldy bodies and multiple violations.

Perry Funeral Home is the second such facility in Detroit where remains have been found, after 11 foetuses were reportedly discovered in a ceiling at the former Cantrell Funeral Home on Friday 12 October.

Licensing and Regulatory Affairs said the funeral home also failed to certify and file death certificates "for the dead bodies of the fetuses and infants for whom they assumed custody with the appropriate governmental authority within 72 hours of death".

According to the Detroit Free Press, Detroit Police Chief James Craig told reporters at a press conference that officers uncovered the remains after the department received a tip about the funeral home.

A person can be found guilty of a felony under Michigan Law for "failure to or refusal to supervise the final disposition of a dead human body" more than 180 days after a funeral, ABC News reports.

Friday's raid comes after another Detroit funeral home was shuttered after the remains of 11 infants were discovered in the ceiling, authorities said.

Maurizio Sarri insists manager Jose Mourinho deserves more respect
Mourinho is hoping to win at Stamford Bridge for the first time as United manager and, more importantly, start climbing the table after a disappointing start.

The statement said the funeral home has been closed and had its business suspended because it posed "an imminent threat to the public health and safety".

Jermont Terry was at the Perry Funeral Home Friday night and shared a live update to the Local 4 Facebook page. Nine bodies were found in a cardboard box, two were found in caskets.

In the meantime, there even more questions - like what's happening with the hundreds of cremated remains from Cantrell Funeral Home.

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.

The Wayne County Medical Examiner's office said it is working to identify the Cantrell Funeral Home remains and notify any families.
