Miles says investigators believe the remains weren’t claimed when a funeral home was closed.
Miles says the remains date to 1967, but no later than 2011. The GBI took inventory and catalogued the remains Monday though Miles says it’s not currently conducting a criminal investigation.
Georgia Bureau of Investigation spokesman Nelly Miles tells news outlets that a friend of the storage unit renter called authorities after finding the remains at the site in Jonesboro.
Authorities say that more than 50 cremated remains have been found in a storage unit in the greater Atlanta area.
