Un­der­tak­ers quiz af­ter 11 ba­bies found

Sunday Mirror - - SAIRAKHAN -

MYS­TERY last night sur­rounded the dis­cov­ery of 11 ba­bies’ bod­ies at a run­down ex-fu­neral home.

The tiny re­mains were con­cealed be­hind a false ceil­ing at the build­ing, where of­fi­cials had pre­vi­ously found “de­plorable” con­di­tions in­clud­ing bod­ies kept in a garage.

The ba­bies, nine in a box and two in a cof­fin, were found af­ter an anony­mous tip-off about the home, which had shut amid ac­cu­sa­tions of break­ing fi­nan­cial and li­cens­ing rules.

Po­lice in the US city of Detroit are try­ing to trace the home’s for­mer owner. Lieu­tenant Brian Bowser said: “We have to find out what hap­pened and why.”
