CINCINNATI – Boxes containing cremated remains of 56 individuals found at a house in southwest Ohio are the same ones a state agency found earlier at a now-closed funeral home.
Dayton police say a contractor found the boxes Tuesday while removing items from a house owned by the funeral home's former director Scherrie McLin. They were labeled with names and dates of the deceased individuals.
The executive director of Ohio's Board of Embalmers and Funeral Directors says investigators found the same boxes last October at the McLin Funeral Home in Dayton. She says investigators then notified the county prosecutor, who didn't immediately return calls Wednesday.
The funeral home's license was revoked in January after an investigation revealed violations of state laws and administrative codes.
McLin couldn't be reached for comment Wednesday.
