Death doesn't stop foreclosure in Detroit

PONTIAC, Mich. (AP) - Even the dead can't escape foreclosure in suburban Detroit.

Five bodies and the cremated remains of 22 people have been evicted from the House of Burns Memorial Chapel, a funeral home in Pontiac.

After removal, they were delivered to the Oakland County medical examiner's office for storage early Friday.

The medical examiner's administrator, Robert Gerds, said some of the cremated remains date to the 1990s.
