PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — The Department of Health says more cremated remains have been found in the investigation of a former Providence funeral home owner who died last month.
State health officials said Friday 45 cremated remains have been found in connection with the Pennine Funeral Home and 43 of the remains have been identified. All but one next of kin has been identified. Two cremated remains were initially found.
Five bodies stored for several years and one fetus were found at the defunct funeral home last month along with the two cremated remains.
Police said on Thursday the remains two adults and a baby were found in a storage unit that had been rented to the late Alfred Pennine, the funeral home owner. The health department has tentatively identified the baby.
