Lieutenant Bowser continued that “We have to find out what happened and why it happened,” and added that they are trying to get in touch with the owner of the Cantrell Funeral Home, named Raymond Cantrell. He was the former owner of the funeral home.
Reuters immediately could not reach the Cantrell.
Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs went to the property of the east side of the city on Friday afternoon as receiving an unnamed letter, which described the location and existence of the remain, said Browser.
Police investigation is going on and trying to find the name of the children and inform their parents about the incident, added Mr. Browser. However, it is unknown that for how long the remains were hidden inside the boxes. He continued that some bodies of babies are apparently been stillborn.
