DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — Police say 56 boxes of cremated human remains have been found at a southwest Ohio house along with documents from a funeral home.
Dayton police Lt. Wendy Stiver (STEYE'-vur) says the plastic boxes are used by funeral homes as temporary containers for cremated remains. Stiver says the boxes were found in a closet by a contractor who told police the house is in foreclosure. He said he was hired to remove remaining items.
Stiver said police were notified and the Montgomery County coroner's office was called to collect the remains. She says there were documents in the house from the McLin Funeral Home in Dayton.
The Dayton Daily News reports the funeral home's license was revoked in January after a state investigation revealed violations of state laws and administrative codes.
