Not the best title for this story…

I mean… it is grammatically correct and it describes the scene accurately… but it would have made more sense if they added one little word:

Bath, N.Y. —

Another body and the remains of a dozen cremated individuals were found Tuesday at the Seager-Jones Funeral Home, 4 E. Washington St.

A local auctioneer found the remains of a deceased male in a sealed casket in a state of advanced decomposition, according to a release from the Steuben County Sheriff’s Office.
The sheriff’s office, Department of Health, and Bath police assisted with Tuesday’s investigation.

Here’s the slightly better version:
