11 infant bodies found in funeral home's ceiling

CONSTRUCTION workers have made a chilling discovery at a former funeral home in the U.S. state of MI after finding the bodies of 11 babies decomposing in the roof.

At a press conference, Detroit Police Department Lt. Brian Bowser said renovation inspectors called 911 as soon as they found the box and casket.

Detroit police said Friday night that investigators received an anonymous letter Friday afternoon that lead them to the gruesome discovery.

"You wouldn't just guess this", Detroit police lieutenant James Demps said.

The funeral home, which had operated for half a century, also had committed numerous other violations of state rules, such as the failure to deposit more than $21,000 in prepayments by at least 13 customers who'd signed contracts for future funeral services, according to the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs.

"They immediately notified Detroit police who responded and removed the boxes from a false ceiling between the first and second storey of the funeral home". Authorities do not know how long the remains had been stored there, he said. An autopsy report from the Wayne County Medical Examiner is forthcoming, according to Officer Burt.

Investigators were looking to speak with the former funeral home's owner, Raymond Cantrell.

The bodies were found in a hidden compartment located in the ceiling of the building.

The building on the city's east side is being converted into a community centre following its closure in April.

"I didn't know anything about that", she said. 'I really don't know how that could even have happened.

Other bodies were found in an "advanced stage of decomposition" and covered in mold, inspectors said, and a third had unknown fluids covering the facial area.

Some of the deceased have been identified, and an investigation is underway, the detective added.
