Maryland authorities revoked the license of a Riverdale funeral home when, during a surprise inspection, they found 40 bodies in bags stacked in their garage. The remains were in poor repair with their identification tags damaged, or in some cases, absent. Β Chambers Funeral Home has a contract with Georgetown University to remove and cremate the remains after cadaver dissection by medical students, and there’s a decent chance that’s where the bodies came from, instead of representing bodies of clients awaiting burial.

Even so, this is pretty creepy and awful.

I live and work in the District of Columbia. I write at We Love DC, a blog I helped start, I work at Technolutionary, a company I helped start, and I’m happy doing both. I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, and gardening. I grow a mean pepper, keep a clean scorebook, and wash the dishes when I’m done. Read Why I Love DC.
