Bodies of 11 babies found in ceiling of funeral home

The bodies of 11 babies have been found hidden in a ceiling of a closed funeral home by construction workers, Detroit police say.

Detroit Police detective lieutenant Brian Bowser told reporters the grim discovery was made yesterday at the Cantrell Funeral Home in Detroit by authorities from the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) after they received an anonymous tip-off letter. The site is being converted to a community center.

The bodies were found in bags, most in a cardboard box and others stuffed in a small coffin, police said.

U.S. inspectors made the grim discovery of 11 corpses on Friday at the Cantrell Funeral Home on Michigan's east side, according to the state's Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs spokesman Jason Moon.

Detroit police will search the entire building to make sure no additional bodies are hidden inside, according to WDIV. "The police responded, they removed the box and the casket from the false ceiling, or the lowered ceiling, and they opened them up and obviously they discovered the remains".

"If I had them in the funeral home then my funeral home wouldn't smell fresh ... so yes they are embalmed and serviced we put them in the garage", Cantrell said at the time. Other embalmed bodies that were improperly stored for months were covered with mold.

Investigators were looking to speak with the former funeral home's owner, Raymond Cantrell. The inspectors also alleged the owners had mishandled funds, and suspended the funeral home's license.

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