The remains of 11 infants were found Friday at a former funeral home in Detroit, Michigan, police said.
Police said the remains were found inside a drop-down ceiling at the former Cantrell Funeral Home, which was being turned into a community center, WDIV reported. Investigators with the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs found nine bodies in a cardboard box and two in caskets, all found in a drop-down ceiling. Construction workers found the bodies Friday as they were working, the TV station reported.
The funeral home was shut down in April for multiple violations, including improper storage of embalmed bodies, two of which were in an advanced stage of decomposition.
