Decades-old fetal remains have been found at another Michigan funeral home — the third such grim discovery in the state in less than two weeks.

An asbestos-removal crew on Monday discovered the remains of two fetuses at the former Mowen Funeral Home in Owosso, about 145km northwest of Detroit.

On Friday, police removed the remains of 63 foetuses from Perry Funeral Home in Detroit. The remains of 10 foetuses and a still-born infant were found October 12 at the Cantrell Funeral Home in Detroit.

Police say the Owosso remains were found in a casket inside a wooden box in a closet. Markings on the box indicate it is more than 50 years old. The Mowen Funeral Home has been closed two years.
