Police found 40 and 60 bodies being stored in two unrefrigerated U-Haul trucks outside Andrew Cleckley Funeral Services and lying on the facility’s floor on April 29 in Brooklyn, New York.
Police told the New York Post that neighbors reported a foul odor, which turned out to be corpses stacked on top of each other and leaking fluid inside the U-Haul trucks.
The funeral home told police that the dead bodies were supposed to be going to a crematorium, which had not picked them up.
An anonymous official told the New York Times that the corpses began piling up in the U-Haul trucks after the funeral home’s freezer stopped working.
