Bodies of 11 babies found in closed funeral home: authorities

Bodies of 11 infants found in ceiling of shuttered Detroit funeral home

This comes after MI inspectors reportedly shut down Cantrell Funeral Home in April after discovering the funeral home had several violations "including decomposing remains and deplorable conditions".

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

Investigators have names for some of the remains and officials were contacting relatives, Bowser said.

Bowser told reporters that inspectors from the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs had received an anonymous letter on Friday detailing how to find bodies inside the now-closed Cantrell Funeral Home. I don't know how long that's been going on there... it's very unfortunate and they definitely need to find out who put them there'. "I really don't know how that could even have happened".

Lt. Brian Bowser, Detroit Police Department, briefed the media on the discovery of 11 bodies of infants found at a shuttered funeral home in Detroit on Friday, Oct. 12, 2018.

United Nations criticized over latest picks for rights council
Following the election, Akbaruddin tweeted , "Voting for a Happy Outcome". The new members will take their seats at the council in January.

The State of MI closed down Cantrell Funeral Home, located at the city's east side, six months ago.

The failure to properly dispose of human remains by a funeral home within 60 days of receiving the body is a criminal misdemeanor under the Michigan Penal Code.

Violations also included two improperly stored bodies covered in what appeared to be mould and a third body with unknown fluids covering the facial area. Using prepaid funds for unauthorized personal use is a felony punishable by a fine of $5,000 and up to five years in prison for each violation.

"If I had them in the funeral home then my funeral home wouldn't smell fresh", Cantrell told Fox.

"Whether they're an employee or whether they actually did it, we don't know yet".
