Police are investigating whether several bodies were left unattended after a mortuary service was told to move out of its building in Fort Worth, Texas.
Police Sgt. Raymond Bush said the property owner a couple of weeks ago told Johnson Family Mortuary to vacate the building. He says the property owner returned Tuesday morning to find "multiple bodies" in the building but no workers.
Bush declined to say how many bodies were found. Investigators are trying to determine if there were violations of state law dictating the disposal of a body.
Texas Funeral Service Commission attorney Kyle Smith says the business has a state license that expires this month. Smith says Johnson Family is the focus of five separate investigations by the commission.
Calls to the business Tuesday went unanswered.
