FLATLANDS, Brooklyn (WPIX) -- Police are investigating allegations of bodies being stored in U-Haul trucks outside of the Andrew Cleckley Funeral Home in Brooklyn.
Police responded to reports of bodies in trucks, to which neighbors attributed a foul odor that they said has persisted for possibly weeks.
Neighbors told PIX11's Shirley Chan that bodies stacked one on top of the other inside of the trucks.
Police sources told PIX11's Mary Murphy anywhere from 30 to 60 bodies were being stored in two U-Haul trucks outside the funeral home.
The source said the funeral home was filled to capacity and, and called the unsanitary and undignified storage "totally inappropriate."
Multiple city agencies were on scene. A spokesperson from the New York State Health Department said they'd been notified of the "storage issues."
