BROOKLYN, N.Y. - Three funeral homes in Brooklyn are facing lawsuits after the remains of dozens of people were found in U-Haul trucks.
Last month NY1 reported about the trucks that were parked outside the Andrew T. Cleckley Funeral Home in Flatlands.
An investigation was opened after local residents complained about foul odors.
Several families whose relatives were found inside the trucks are now suing the Cleckley home, DeKalb Funeral Services, and Armistead Burial and Cremation.
The three homes have no official business relation.
But a representative with Armistead says they have a "gentlemen's agreement" when it comes to sending business to each other.
The state has already suspended the Cleckley home's license.
