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.  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.
