Andrew Cleckley Funeral Home in the Brooklyn
Dozens of dead bodies were found inside moving trucks near a Brooklyn funeral home in New York City.
The four trucks were discovered after neighbors complained of a sickening odor emanating from the vehicles, which may have stored the corpses for weeks.

Residents of Brooklyn’s Flatlands neighborhood had tried to ignore the stench, but on Wednesday police were finally called to investigate its source, stumbling upon 50 rotting corpses stacked inside four non-refrigerated trucks at the Andrew T. Cleckley Funeral Home.

Some residents told local media they’d noticed the odor for several weeks.

President of the Brooklyn borough, Eric Adams, said he arrived at the Cleckley facility on Wednesday evening to see what looked like a crime scene, with streets sealed off as officers inspected the trucks.

The owner of the facility told authorities he had done his best to deal with the overwhelming flow of bodies, attempting to load the trucks with ice, but to little effect.

Though he was slapped with two citations for the improper storage, the owner faces no criminal charges, according to NBC News.
