The anonymous tip that brought state investigators to the former Cantrell Funeral Home at 10400 Mack Avenue revealed nine bodies in a cardboard box, and two inside a trash bag placed in a casket.
The building's new owner, who purchased it about a month ago, said the interior smelled horribly, and he'd removed four dumpsters of garbage as he started renovating it into a community center.
Officials on Sunday still had no answers to why the bodies were there, and none of the identities of the infants or their relatives had been disclosed.
Lisa Croff, spokeswoman from the Wayne County Medical Examiner's Office, said the office is working with Detroit police and other agencies to get the infants and families identified.
