Police block off an area outside the Andrew T. Cleckley Funeral Home in New York, April 29, 2020. Dozens of decomposing bodies were found in trucks outside the home after neighbors complained of a foul odor.

NEW YORK - Police were called to a Brooklyn neighborhood Wednesday after a funeral home overwhelmed by the coronavirus resorted to storing dozens of bodies on ice in rented trucks, and a passerby complained about the smell, officials said.

Investigators who responded to a 911 call found that the home had rented four trucks to hold about 50 corpses, according to a law enforcement official. No criminal charges were brought and the official, who was not authorized to speak publicly about the investigation, spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity.
