56 boxes of cremated remains found in Ohio house

More than 50 boxes of cremated human remains have been found at a house in southwest Ohio along with documents from a funeral home, police said Tuesday.

The 56 plastic boxes are used by funeral homes as temporary containers for cremated remains, said Dayton police Lt. Wendy Stiver. She said a contractor called police Tuesday after finding the boxes stacked in a closet.

“He said the house is in foreclosure and he was hired to remove remaining items from the house,” Stiver told The Associated Press.

Stiver said police notified the Montgomery County coroner’s office, which collected the remains. Documents from the McLin Funeral Home in Dayton also were found in the house, she said.

Rest here…

Bet this was one of their worst scores ever…

I can see how it now.

“Hey dude, come check out these boxes over here in the closet, looks like it might be the belongings of 56 different people.”

“Well, open em up and let’s see what we can loot.”

“Eww, what is this shit?”

“I dunno, maybe we can smoke it or something.”

“I think we better call the boss.”
