The owners of an abandoned funeral home in El Paso County, Colorado were arrested on charges of abuse of a corpse, theft, money laundering, and forgery.

The funeral home contained 190 decomposing human remains, some as old as four years, and the owners are facing a total of 200 felony charges.

Investigators have identified 110 of the bodies and are working to identify the rest. (Trending: SNL Legend Unleashes On Democrats)

Gov. Jared Polis wrote on X, “I am relieved that criminal charges have been brought against the funeral home owner, and a criminal investigation is proceeding.”

“I know this will not bring peace to the families impacted, but we hope the individuals responsible are held fully accountable in a court of law,” said the Colorado governor’s statement.

“To say my family is horrified and enraged is an understatement,” remarked victim and local resident Lindsay Maher.

“My grandma’s last wishes were to be cremated and have her ashes spread in the ocean,” she lamented.

“It turns out the ashes we received from Return To Nature was actually just concrete dust and my grandma’s body has been at the abandoned building this entire time just decaying next to 114 other bodies of 114 other unsuspecting families,” claimed Maher about the funeral home on trial.

Families who used the services of the funeral home between September 2019 and 2023 are urged to contact the coroner’s office.

Governor Jared Polis expressed relief that criminal charges have been brought against the funeral home owner and hopes for full accountability in court.

District Judge Samorreyan Burney set bail at $2 million cash per person for the couple.
