Perry Funeral Home: Unburied fetuses, infants removed from second Detroit funeral home

Perry Funeral Home is the second such facility in Detroit where remains have been found, after 11 foetuses were reportedly discovered in a ceiling at the former Cantrell Funeral Home on Friday 12 October.

An official with Perry Funeral Home, which offers burial and cremation services, declined to comment on the incident. About 37 fetuses were found in cardboard boxes and 26 in a freezer, according to police.

Licensing and Regulatory Affairs said it has suspended the funeral home's mortuary science license because of "multiple violations of Michigan's public health and occupational codes and an imminent threat to the public health and safety". "I can't say that with certainty, and so this is much larger than we might know". "... This is deeply disturbing".

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. Some of the deceased had dates of death in 2015.

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.

They also raided the home of the owner, Anetta Cantrell, the widow of the deceased founder of the Detroit home with the same name.

That marked Licensing and Regulatory Affairs' third visit to the premises in only a few months.

The agency's statement said Friday's findings could be felonies "punishable by imprisonment for not more than 10 years or a fine of not more than $50,000 or both". Authorities discovered the remains after an anonymous letter arrived in the offices of state regulators in Lansing.

Of the grisly total, 36 fetuses were stored in boxes and another 27 were found in freezers, police said.

No connection between the two cases has yet been established, Detroit's police chief said. The tip came from a father involved in a civil suit with Perry Funeral Homes over the improper burial of his infant daughter. The funeral home "routinely deposited" infant remains at the school facility, the paper said.
