Multiple Bodies Found Inside Abandoned Funeral Home

Categories: News

Not the entrance to the funeral home with the dead bodies inside.
Nine dead bodies were found in an abandoned Fort Worth funeral home Tuesday morning. According to The Dallas Morning News, the owner of the building asked the home's operators to leave two weeks ago. But workers told police the home hosted a service on Saturday, according to WFAA.

The police didn't tell WFAA whether the bodies were refrigerated, but the News reported that the electricity and air conditioning were still on inside the building.

The funeral home has five complaints open against it. Another closed complaint result in probation for the funeral home, according to the News. Some people told WFFA, though, that they "received good service when they used the funeral home."

The warrant that police used to start a search of the funeral home cites "abuse of corpse," according to the News.

I saw on the news last night where someone was complaining that they gave these guys $400 to bury grandma and they are surprised that they didn't do anything except pocket the money.  If these guys could make money at $400 per burial, there would be a line out the door.

Gotta admit it, that is some first rate police work!  How would they ever have known to look for dead bodies there?
