17 bodies were discovered by police that had been stacked in a New Jersey nursing home’s morgue, most of them likely killed by the Coronavirus. As The New York Post reports:
Police reportedly discovered 17 corpses stuffed inside a small morgue at one of New Jersey’s largest nursing homes.
Officers at the Andover Township Police Department found the bodies at the Andover Subacute and Rehabilitation Center after pursuing an anonymous tip about the improper storage of corpses during the coronavirus pandemic, the New York Times reported.
The bodies were placed in a morgue built for just four as the nursing home grappled with mounting deaths.
“They were just overwhelmed by the number of people who were expiring,” Eric Danielson, the police chief in Andover, told the paper, after finding the bodies on Easter Sunday and the following Monday.
The 17 bodies were just a part of the more than 68 people who have reportedly died at the nursing, which has been ravaged by the Coronavirus.
