More Than 63 Fetuses Are Found in Funeral Homes


My grief and anger at this news report are immeasurable. Here’s a summary of the story:

When their daughter died 27 minutes after her birth in December 2014, a Detroit couple donated the infant’s remains for medical research. Four years later, Rachel Brown and Larry Davis don’t know what happened to Alayah’s tiny body. They’re plaintiffs in a lawsuit filed earlier this year that may help explain how the remains of 63 fetuses were discovered by police Friday in boxes and freezers at Perry Funeral Home at Warren and Trumbull on Detroit’s west side.

Estimates are that up to 200 more bodies may be found at Perry Funeral Home.
