The Bodies Of Two Babies Found In Funeral Home Ceiling Tiles

Police say the remains of two babies have been found in small boxes above ceiling tiles in a northwestern Indiana funeral home. It was a grizzly scene as Gary police and the Lake County coroner removed the bodies of a stillborn and a newborn from Smith, Bizzell and Warner Funeral Home. Investigators said the bodies appeared mummified or skeletonized. One had a tag indicating the baby was delivered in 1996. The coroner says the funeral home owners, Concord Family Services Inc., contacted her after finding the remains. They say the home's previous owners left the bodies. Concord bought the home in 2005. A  criminal investigation is now underway.
