"This is deeply disturbing", Craig said at a news conference, hours after police raided Perry Funeral Home and allegedly seized 63 fetus or infant bodies, more than half of which were packed together in unrefrigerated boxes.
In a press conference earlier on Friday, Detroit Police Chief James Craig said that the Perry Funeral Home had been alleged to have improperly disposed of fetuses.
The case began last week at Cantrell Funeral Home in east Detroit, which had been shuttered since the spring over accusations that adult corpses had been improperly stored to the point of growing mold. A state oversight agency has closed the west side funeral home.
Perry Funeral Home is the second such facility in Detroit where fetuses have been found.
Craig said the investigation into the Perry Funeral Home began after a man who has sued that business over its handling of remains of infants and fetuses saw coverage of the discoveries at the Cantrell Funeral Home and told his attorney to contact police. It also alleges the funeral home may have fraudulently billed Medicaid, as well as the Detroit Medical Center, for burials it never performed.
As many as 36 infants and foetuses were found stored in boxes, and 27 in freezers.Читайте также: Apple forces OnePlus to move its OnePlus 6T launch up a day
Ms Dellihue said: "I paid money for my daughter, I want her you know.it's heartbreaking to know that people are out there doing sick things like that".
"We had federal state, local law enforcement and prosecutors in the room", Craig said.
Inspectors raided the funeral home in response to a complaint, the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs said, without releasing details of the complaint.
The incident comes about a week after the badly decomposed bodies of 11 babies were found hidden in a false ceiling at a different funeral home in the MI city.
Since April, 38 unattended bodies and 269 containers of cremated remains have been discovered in the facility.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
