PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Central Detectives and the Philadelphia Medical Examiner are on their way to an address on West Hagert Street near 26th in Strawberry Mansion, where police found three decomposing bodies.


Police went to the scene late Tuesday morning after a person called 911 complaining of a foul odor coming from that address.

Police say the building where the bodies were found is owned by a funeral home around the corner.

Police haven’t made any determination as to the manner of death in each of these cases, nor have authorities determined why the bodies were not properly stored.
