The Wayne County morgue in Detroit, Michigan, has found itself out of funding to bury the county poor. In the morgue's freezer there are now 67 bodies that have been piled up, while the family and county can't bury them.
The record number of corpses lay unclaimed and likely not going anywhere soon. Albert Samuels is the chief investigator for the morgue and said in the 13 years he has been there this has never happened.
Wayne County is given a $21,000 budget each year to bury the dead; this year they ran out of funds in June. The state of Michigan has about $135,500 left for burial assistance out of the 4.9 million budget to help with indigent burials for the poor.
