No criminal investigation after unclaimed cremains found

Officials say the discovery of about three dozen boxes of cremated remains in southern Michigan after the death of a funeral director isn’t being investigated as a potential criminal matter.
Calhoun County Medical Examiner Dr. Joyce DeJong says the family of Joy Spencer Spoor discovered the cremains in storage after her Octotober 14 death. Spoor was a former owner of Spencer Family Funeral Home in Athens.
The funeral home was sold in a bankruptcy auction in 2015. The property is being cleared for redevelopment. DeJong says families are being notified about the unclaimed remains.
