The bodies of 11 babies were found in the ceiling of an abandoned funeral home.

The authorities said the remains were found in the Cantrell Funeral Home, Detroit, USA, which was forcibly closed six months ago.

Officers were alerted to the discarded remains after an anonymous letter was sent to the local council.

Detroit police say that eight or nine bodies were found in a cardboard box and the others in one or more coffins, all hidden in a blanket.

The police have ordered a search of the building to make sure there are no more bodies in it.

The regulator suspended the undertaker's license in April after the inspectors discovered the decomposition of embalmed bodies.

Other offenses included two improperly stored bodies covered with mold and a third body of unknown fluids covering the area of ​​the face.

During the unannounced inspection, the inspectors found 20 bodies, seven were in coffins, three were in cremation tanks and 10 were only on tables.

According to inspectors, many of the bodies had been decomposed for months.

Jason Moon, Communication Director of the Licensing and Regulatory Affairs Department (LARA), said of the new discovery: "Based on a new complaint, LARA investigators today searched the Cantrell Funeral Home and found the decaying bodies of 11 infants to the local authorities.

In April, LARA canceled the house's mortuary certificates and its manager, Jameca LaJoyce Boone, for numerous violations, including improper storage of adult and young body decaying bodies.

"This suspension decision, as well as our investigation, will remain in effect and we will use the evidence gathered today to supplement our open investigation, and we will continue to work with local law enforcement agencies if this case continues."
