On October 22, 2018, the Owosso Police Department was notified of possible human skeletal remains located within a former funeral home located at 409 W. Main St.
The former Mowen Funeral Home building has been vacant for over two years and is currently undergoing asbestos removal for future demolition. Contractors working in the building discovered a box containing the skeletal remains of two small fetuses. The workers then notified the Owosso Police Department.
The box containing the fetuses was found in an abandoned second-floor apartment of the former funeral home. Markings on the box indicate that the box is more than fifty years old.

Investigators from the Shiawassee County Medical Examiner and Sparrow Hospital Medical Examiner are assisting with the investigation.
