    Eight decomposed bodies found in vacated funeral home, Fort Worth

    Eight abandoned dead bodies have been found in a Fort Worth, TX funeral home, after the owners were evicted for non-payment of rent.

    Six females have now been identified, but two sets of fetal remains have not, and all were in advanced stages of decomposition. The smell was so bad the reporter who made the video had to wear a mask.

    There haven't been any charges but co-owner Dondre Johnson was booked into jail on a contempt of court charge, for allegedly failing to pay child support.

    “Yes, we may have dropped the ball,” Johnson Family Mortuary owner Rachel Johnson said ....."But....We have not neglected anybody at Johnson Family Mortuary.”

    I liked "..We have not neglected anybody at Johnson Family Mortuary."

    Good grief!

    What do they call leaving decomposing bodies lying around? TLC? They were neglecting everybody!

    Most sincerely, I hope these people do some serious time.

    Because the wife doesn't owe any money she is free to open another funeral home!!! She should be banned for life.

    What about fraud?

    Were these deceased people indigent? No family? Freebies?

    That would IMO be even more despicable !

    No, from what I've seen, these families paid upfront for the funeral services. And then zilch. One lady is soooo upset, and demanding her money back and the return of remains (understandable). I think that's how these guys were caught out.

    Can't tell you how mad I'd be. They just left these remains rotting, unrefrigerated. I didn't post any close-up pics, but it was pretty obvious from them that that bodies had just been left to frankly, rot, in the premises.

    I just watched the video of the owner....what a piece of work!

    Mistake?

    What the heck?

    Two of the bodies were of children...

    Where were they storing the decedents??? In that garage in the video?
