(WDIV) Workers have made another disturbing discovery inside a former Detroit, Michigan funeral home where the bodies of 11 infants were recently found hidden in an attic passageway.

The cremated remains of four people were found in the basement at the former Cantrell Funeral home.

Many people are worried there could be more discoveries, because there's more cleanup to do and the facility is large.

Joe Summers is an electrician rewiring the building.

"I found a couple of them yesterday, but I didn't think it was going to continue," Summers said.

The discoveries did continue Wednesday morning. Summers found a black box tucked away.

"So as I get close to it, I pull it up forward and it says Cantrell Funeral on it and it says cremation on it. It has the person's name and the date they passed away," he said.

The year engraved said 1993. He immediately called his supervisor, who contacted the state.

The state shut down Cantrell in April and removed 21 rotting bodies from the garage.
