Philadelphia police: Casket with infant organs came from New Jersey funeral home

NORTH PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) --Philadelphia police say a casket found earlier this week, which had embalmed infant organs inside, came from a funeral home in New Jersey.

The casket was found in the 3000 block of West Clearfield Street, across from the Mount Vernon Cemetery, just after 9 p.m. Monday.

Officers arrived to find a small, white, closed casket. When they opened it, they found a plastic bag containing what the Medical Examiner later confirmed to be two embalmed human organs from an infant.

"It was shocking to say the least," Capt. Malachi Jones said. "It begs the question: Where is the baby?"
