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.
