Jeffersonville, Indiana, police searched the facility in July and discovered 31 bodies in various stages of decomposition.

The bodies were said to be in body bags and unrefrigerated.

Some of the bodies had been at the site for an “extended period of time,” investigators said, while one had been there since March 59, according to Fox.

Police also said they found the cremated remains of more than a dozen other people at the site.

Officers began searching after receiving an indication of an odor coming from the building.

In a statement, Attorney General Todd Rokita said his office gives a high priority to protecting Hoosiers from harmful business practices and professional misconduct.

“In this case, our Licensing Enforcement Team acted quickly to take the appropriate action.”

The licenses are suspended indefinitely.

“Bereaved families need to be assured that the remains of their loved ones will be treated with respect and appropriateness,” Rokita said.

“Moreover, the unsanitary conditions at this funeral home posed a clear and imminent threat to public health and safety.”

He went on to say that his office is committed to ensuring that anyone entrusted with a state-issued professional license meets the required standards.

Officials also found the cremated remains of 17 people.

Upon learning of conditions at the facility, the attorney general’s team on July 26 petitioned the State Board of Funeral and Cemetery Service to suspend the emergency permit.

“Anyone with information that may be helpful is asked to contact the Attorney General’s License Enforcement Division at 1-800-382-5516,” his office said in a statement.
