An environmentally friendly funeral home in Penrose, Colorado, is now under investigation. According to The Guardian, the establishment is being probed for the “improper handling” of human remains.

“Just you and the Earth, returning to nature,” the website’s FAQ page reads. “Interment of the bodies is done in a biodegradable casket, basket, shroud, or even nothing at all. No embalming fluid, no concrete vaults. As natural as possible.”

According to ABC News, it is currently “unclear” whether a crime has occurred at the establishment. Additionally, the outlet reports that no arrests have yet been made.

Additionally, Sheriff Cooper described “the area of the funeral home where the bodies were improperly stored” as “horrific.”
According to ABC News, authorities reportedly discovered the bodies in a space of about 2,500 feet.

“We just assumed it was a dead animal,” nearby resident Joyce Pavetti explained, as per The Guardian.

According to the outlet, the investigation occurred at The Return To Nature Funeral Home. The establishment’s official website reports that the funeral home stopped offering cremation services around July. Additionally, the funeral home prioritizes a “green burial,” a “return to the traditional way of burial.”

The Return To Nature Funeral Home owners are reportedly cooperating with authorities. However, police are urging anyone with information to send tips to ti**@fr*******.com and for family members of the deceased to contact 23*****@fr*******.com, as per KRDO.

On Wednesday, sheriff’s investigators from the Fremont County Sheriff’s Office returned with a warrant and reportedly found at least 115 bodies of “improperly stored remains.”

The website adds that the process utilizes “no chemicals, metal or unnatural materials.”
The outlet reports that the town of Penrose consists of approximately 3,000 residents. Additionally, The Guardian adds that green burials are legal in Colorado. However, if a deceased body is not buried within 24 hours, it must be “properly refrigerated.”
According to the outlet, it remains unclear “what the funeral home was doing with the human remains.” However, various Colorado organizations are now working with the FBI and conducting DNA testing to identify the deceased. Then, their families will be notified.
