iStock/Thinkstock(PROVIDENCE, R.I.) — More than 50 human remains were found during an investigation into a now shuttered funeral home.

Officials first discovered six decomposed bodies inside the Pennine Funeral home in Providence, Rhode Island in July, the same month the funeral home owner Alfred Pennine committed suicide.

This week three other bodies, including an infant, were found in a storage unit owned by Pennine.

And now it’s been revealed Pennine also kept 45 cremated remains, some of which date back to 2001.

Officials are working to identify the bodies and notify next of kin.
