The raid came a week after an anonymous letter led investigators to an abandoned funeral home on the other side of central Detroit, where they allegedly found almost a dozen infant corpses hidden in a ceiling.

Conditions of the fetuses are not known as well as where they were stored. An anonymously written letter led MI inspectors to find badly decomposed remains of 11 infants hidden in a ceiling compartment of the shuttered Detroit funeral home.

LARA now has an open investigation into Perry Funeral Home and has notified the Michigan Attorney General's office and the Detroit Police Department of its findings and regulatory actions.

"This is deeply disturbing", Craig said at a news conference, hours after police raided Perry Funeral Home and allegedly seized 63 fetus or infant bodies, more than half of which were packed together in unrefrigerated boxes.

This incident comes on the heels of 10 fetuses and one infant's remains found inside a false ceiling at the former Cantrell Funeral Home on Mack last Friday.

This is a developing story.

Craig said that law enforcement agencies were considering forming a task force to target improper storage of remains and fraud in the area.

Police have not said any charges have been filed; Detroit Police Chief James Craig said his department is investigating.

"We have tremendous work today", the police chief said.

Authorities are conducting a criminal investigation, Craig said. Those remains were found after state regulators in Lansing received an anonymous letter. The remains recovered on Friday are now in custody of the state.

Perry went so far as to issue fraudulent death certificates for the infants, the parents alleged, and billed Medicare and hospitals for funerals that were never performed.

Deak did not immediately respond to a request for comment made by NBC News.

Craig said he had "never seen anything" like what was discovered at the two funeral homes. The funeral home routinely deposited infant remains at the WSU school's morgue, then failed to follow up with parents' wishes for the remains to be used in research by the WSU School of Medicine, they said.

"I would like to look at you and tell you I hope. that this is isolated to these two".
