Police Find 17 Bodies Piled at New Jersey Nursing Home Following Tip

New Jersey police discovered 17 bodies piled up inside a nursing home morgue that was designed to keep just four bodies. They found out this after they received an anonymous tip that the facility was keeping a corpse in a shed.

According to the authorities, the discovery was made Monday at the Andover Subacute and Rehabilitation Center, which had also been linked to 68 deaths since when the coronavirus outbreak started, 26 of them reportedly testing positive for the virus.

Officers did not find a body in a shed, as the tip claimed.

Andover Police chief Eric Danielson stated that the facility was just overwhelmed by the number of people who were expiring.

13 of the bodies were moved to a refrigerated truck at a nearby hospital. It was not immediately clear how many of the 17 people were killed by the coronavirus.

New Jersey had recorded more than 71,000 coronavirus related cases and 3,100 deaths.
