Philly Funeral Director Caught With old Bodies in her Garage, Police Say

We’ve all been known to let work pile up from time to time, but the accusations against a funeral home director arrested in Philadelphia on Thursday are simply disgusting.

Janet Powell-Dailey, 72, has been charged with abusing corpses after a long investigation that kicked off when three decomposing bodies were found in a garage near the funeral home she operated, the Philadelphia Daily News reports. One of those bodies was in a coffin, while the others were in cardboard boxes, according to the Associated Press.

Police were alerted to the bodies after a neighbor discovered them in the garage, which reportedly used to be the meeting location for a motorcycle club.

Police say that Powell-Dailey accepted the bodies at her now-closed business despite her license having expired long before.
