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.
Speaking to reporters on the night of that discovery, a police sergeant attributed to bodies' condition to "just the callousness of the owner, the operators, the employees of the funeral home".
"This is deeply disturbing", Detroit Police Chief James Craig told reporters on Friday.
Inside, on Friday afternoon, they found "three unrefrigerated boxes containing the remains of a total of approximately 36 deceased bodies of fetuses or infants", according to a statement from the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs, "plus a deep freezer containing an unknown number of additional deceased bodies".
Some had been dead since 2015.
The Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs, the state's regulatory agency, made a decision to close the funeral home and suspend its license after making the discovery, the Detroit Free Press reported.

The agency's statement said Friday's findings point clearly toward criminal offences of state laws regulating funeral homes that could be felonies "punishable by imprisonment for not more than 10 years or a fine of not more than (US)$50,000 or both". In some cases, the home embalmed remains without the knowledge or consent of the families, the department said.
