According to Fox News, A Michigan funeral home was shut down after state inspectors found a slew of unsanitary conditions, including maggots and unrefrigerated bodies in the facility.

Swanson Funeral Home in Flint had its mortuary license suspended following several investigations that uncovered dreadful conditions, state officials announced July 12. O’Neil D. Swanson, manager of the funeral home, also had his license suspended.

State inspectors noted the funeral home of horrors was infested with maggots and housed unrefrigerated bodies – some of which were there for several months. One of the bodies found in the establishment died on February 3, 2017 and was not embalmed, a complaint against the facility said.

The room used for embalming was unsanitary and had a hand sink covered in what appeared to be dried blood, hair and pieces of tissue, state inspectors said. It also lacked proper equipment for prepping bodies ahead of funeral services.
