Police say dozens of infant remains found in second Detroit funeral home

Detroit Babies' remains found in second funeral home

Police removed the remains of 63 fetuses from a Detroit funeral home and regulators shuttered the business amid a widening investigation of alleged improprieties at local funeral homes.

- Detroit police raided the Perry Funeral Home near Warren where remains of 63 fetuses have been discovered and removed.

Perry Funeral Home also failed to certify and file death certificates for the bodies of fetuses and infants within 72 hours of death, according to LARA.

Investigators originally found the remains of 11 stillborn babies concealed in a funeral home's "false ceiling", after they received an anonymous letter tipping them off.

Police Chief James Craig says law enforcement agencies are considering forming a task force to investigate the issue, specifically targeting improper storage of remains and fraud.

"I am committed to get to the truth", Craig said Friday, according to CNN affiliate WDIV.

Since April, 38 unattended bodies and 269 containers of cremated remains have been discovered in the facility.

No connection between the two cases has yet been established, Detroit's police chief said.

Israeli jets strike Gaza in response to Palestinian rockets
Israel views the protests as riots and says its response is a justified defense of Israeli civilians living in the Gaza periphery. He said retaliatory strikes had hit 20 targets, including a Hamas attack tunnel and an "advanced weapons manufacturing site".

Other violations included failing to obtain permits to remove or bury the remains before interment or disposal and obtaining possession or embalming the deceased bodies without being authorized to do so, the statement said.

Arrangements were being made to relocate a service previously scheduled at the funeral home.

More than 60 human foetuses have been found stashed in cardboard boxes and freezers at funeral home in MI.

Details about why the remains were being stored at Perry Funeral Home and the former Cantrell Funeral Home, or whether the cases are in any way related, weren't immediately available.

"I would like to look at you and tell you I hope. that this is isolated to these two".

Failure of a funeral home to properly dispose of a dead body after more than 180 days is punishable by up to 10 years in prison and $50,000 in fines.

The police chief, Craig, said a task force of local and state police, Federal Bureau of Investigation advisers and other investigators has been assembled to look for any possible connection between the two funeral homes, any possible reason for hoarding infant corpses, and the possibility that businesses in the region could have done the same.
