The attacks occurred between Sept. 26 and Nov. 28.

Cremated remains found in storage unit

EAST POINT, Ga. --- A lawyer says 96 boxes of cremated remains from a closed funeral home have been found in an East Point storage unit.

Neil Gordon, a bankruptcy attorney and trustee for the Sellers Brothers Funeral Home, said his staff was looking for financial records when they discovered the remains in a storage space.

The funeral home has gone out of business. Mr. Gordon said some of the remains date back as far as 25 years.

Officials said they have found seven families of the deceased so far.
