BROOKLYN, NY: As the pandemic is at large, the death toll has been ghastly, the U.S. being the most affected. New York’s toll has totted up to 13,000, reports say. There has been an enormous strain on the funeral homes, while the number surged. If losing a family member wasn’t hard enough, dozens of bodies were found decaying in NY. Andrew T. Cleckley Funeral Home, whose motto says, “It is an honor to serve you,” has proven quite the opposite. The funeral home brought in 4 U-HAUL trucks, as an attempt to store bodies for the time being. An unbearable stench was brought to attention by the passerby and the neighbors. Some even reported fluid seeping out of the truck.
When a complaint was lodged, the NYPD found dozens of bodies (over 50) was found in the trucks. A number of bodies were also found lying on the ground near the home. Wearing masks and protective gear, the bodies were transferred to a refrigerated truck. By far, No criminal charges were brought, according to an official speaking to the Associated Press.
Eric Adams, Brooklyn Borough President, told the New York Daily News: “While this situation is under investigation, we should not have what we have right now, with trucks lining the streets filled with bodies.” A neighboring property owner, John DiPietro, reported to Fox News that the bodies have been in those trucks for weeks. “You don’t respect the dead that way,” he told the Post. “That could have been my father, my brother. You don’t do that to the dead.”
