Bodies Of 11 Infants Found In Ceiling Of Former Detroit Funeral Home

'I didn't know anything about that, ' she told The Detroit News. "I really don't know how that could even have happened". "They're very small remains".

Michigan State Police and the Wayne County Medical examiners responded to the former funeral home Friday.

Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs spokesman Jason Moon says inspectors were called to the Cantrell Funeral Home on the city's east side. At the time, inspectors reported finding multiple decomposing bodies and other unsanitary, improper practices.

The remains of the infants, some of them apparently stillborn, were in a false ceiling between the first and second floors, Brower said.

State inspectors shut down the Cantrell Funeral Home on Mack Avenue in April after the discovery of several violations including decomposing remains and "deplorable conditions". That suspension order remains in effect as does our investigation. We will use the evidence gathered today to add to our open investigation and will continue to work with local law enforcement as this case proceeds'. Officials allegedly found seven bodies in caskets, three bodies in cremation containers and ten bodies just lying on tables. A third body had unknown fluids covering the facial area. The inspectors also claimed the owners had mishandled funds and suspended the funeral home's licence.

Other violations include failing to deposit $21,000 in prepayments by at least 13 customers who signed contracts for future funeral services.

Raymond Cantrell, who had taken over the business the previous year, told Fox 2 Detroit that he'd been storing the corpses until their families found money to pay for their funerals - "a favor", as he put it.

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