Remains of 63 infants, foetuses found at funeral home in Detroit

Remains of 63 infants, foetuses found at funeral home in Detroit”

Craig said a man involved in a civil suit over the improper burial of his infant daughter tipped off the police about violations at Perry Funeral Home.

The police in Detroit city of MI in the United States on Friday found remains of 63 infants and foetuses in a funeral home.

"This is deeply disturbing", Detroit Police Chief James Craig told reporters on Friday.

This is the second grisly discovery MI investigators have made at a Detroit funeral home in the past week.

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.

Jermont Terry was at the Perry Funeral Home Friday night and shared a live update to the Local 4 Facebook page.

Inspectors raided the funeral home in response to a complaint, the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs said, without releasing details of the complaint. It was an anonymous tip that helped uncover these remains.

They added that it is unclear in what condition the remains were found.

On Friday police raided Q.A. Cantrell Funeral Home in Eastpointe as well as the home of its owner - confiscating computers, cellphone and paperwork.

The shocking discovery comes only one week after Detroit police found 11 infant corpses in the ceilings of Cantrell Funeral Home after LARA followed up on a complaint. It also alleges the funeral home may have fraudulently billed Medicaid, as well as the Detroit Medical Center, for burials it never performed. Officials also located a deep freezer containing an unknown number of deceased bodies. However, Detroit police chief James Craig said no connection between the two cases had yet been established, Reuters reported.

Exterior of the former Cantrell Funeral Home building is seen on Monday, Oct. 15, 2018 in Detroit.

Charges have not yet been filed in the Cantrell Funeral Home case, but Craig said he has been in touch with both the Michigan Attorney General's Office and the Wayne County prosecutor about what the next steps might be.
