The decomposed bodies of 11 infants were discovered by state investigators in the ceiling of a former funeral home in Detroit, local police said Friday night. The discovery was made after an anonymous tip informed authorities where they could be found. "They were actually in a cardboard box, nine of the 11 — they're very small remains," said Lt. Brian Bowser of the Detroit Police Department. "They were in a cardboard box stuffed away from a stairwell." So far, only some of the remains have been identified. The funeral home shut down earlier this year over violations including fraud and gross negligence.
