No rest for dead at foreclosed Mich. funeral home.

PONTIAC, Mich. (AP) — Even the dead can’t escape foreclosure in suburban Detroit. Five bodies and the cremated remains of 22 people were evicted Friday from a funeral home in Pontiac.

The remains from the House of Burns Memorial Chapel were delivered to the Oakland County medical examiner’s office for storage. A medical examiner’s administrator, Robert Gerds, said some of the cremated remains date to the 1990s.

The county will send the bodies to another funeral home if a family member makes a claim.

A pastor who went to the building Friday to attend a funeral service says he disapproves of the timing and the way the eviction was carried out.

Detroit television stations also aired video of caskets being removed. Gerds says no bodies were inside.
