DAYTON, Ohio - A southwest Ohio coroner's office said it's taking inventory of more than 50 boxes of cremated human remains found at a house under foreclosure.

Dayton police Lt. Wendy Stiver said the 56 plastic boxes were found with documents from a funeral home. The boxes were found in a closet by a contractor hired to remove remaining items from the home.

The Montgomery County coroner's office was called to collect the remains. It said Tuesday the case is a priority but there's no time frame for it to finish the inventory and then seek the next of kin of the people who were cremated.

Police said the documents in the house were from the McLin Funeral Home. The Dayton Daily News reports the funeral home's license was revoked in January after a state investigation revealed code violations.

The funeral home's phone is disconnected.
