  • The closed Cantrell Funeral Home in Detroit

The discovery was made after the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA), which licenses funeral homes, was sent an anonymous letter Friday afternoon, which described exactly where the remains could be found.

An investigation is underway after the remains of 11 infants were found inside the ceiling a former Detroit funeral home that had been shut down due to deplorable conditions.

Of the 11 bodies, nine of the babies were found in a cardboard box and two others in coffins, all found in the drop-down ceiling.

"We do have names for some of the remains and we're going to try to contact the families", Bowser added.

The bodies of 11 infants have been found at a Detroit funeral home, which has been shuttered for months after accumulating a slew of violations, ranging from fraud to gross negligence.

At the time of the discovery, construction was underway to convert the funeral home into a community center. No additional bodies have been found inside the building.

"It's just the callousness of the owner, the operators, the employees of the funeral home", Bowser said.

He did not know how long the bodies had been stored there or how old they were. Other embalmed bodies that were improperly stored for months were covered with mould.

Cantrell Funeral Home is located on the city's east side where 10400 Mack Avenue meets Garland, about 10 blocks east of the Indian Village neighbourhood.

'That suspension order remains in effect as does our investigation. The inspectors also alleged the owners had mishandled funds, and suspended the funeral home's license.

He may be guilty of a felony punishable by a fine of '$5,000 or imprisonment of not more than five years, or both, ' according to the LARA website.

The successor to the closed funeral home operates as Cantrell Funeral Services, the paper said.
