Funeral Home Loses License Over Mishandled Bodies

The New York Post reports:

State health officials on Friday suspended the license of an “appalling” Brooklyn funeral home that stacked decomposing corpses in unrefrigerated rental trucks, unbeknownst to family members, The Post has learned.

“Following an investigation by the State Department of Health, I issued an immediate suspension order to the Andrew T. Cleckley Funeral Home in Brooklyn — whose actions were appalling, disrespectful to the families of the deceased, and completely unacceptable,” Health Commissioner Howard Zucker said in a statement.

State investigators are still looking into the “appalling conditions” at the home, and said additional fines are possible.

Up to 60 bodies were found in the trucks.
