20 February 2024, Bavaria, Nuremberg: Archaeologists excavate the human remains from one of the largest plague graves discovered in Germany to date. The skeletons were discovered during construction work on the site for a new retirement home.

The individual, sought by authorities following the discovery of human remains and cremains in Denver, has not been apprehended as confirmed by the Denver Police Department (DPD).

On Feb. 16, the police department revealed that a woman’s remains and the cremains of at least 30 other individuals were found on a Denver property, including inside a hearse rented by Miles Harford, 33.

That morning, authorities issued an arrest warrant for him for investigation of abuse of a corpse, forgery, and theft.

Police mentioned they had recently been in touch with Harford and were in the process of apprehending him.

However, on Thursday, the police department stated that despite their efforts to help him surrender on his warrant, Harford did not cooperate or turn himself in.

A Metro Denver Crime Stoppers crime alert was released by the police department, seeking information from the public that could help in making an arrest.

If anyone has details on his location, please contact Crime Stoppers at 720-913-7867. Informants have the option to stay unidentified and receive a reward of up to $2,000.

The incident started on the morning of Feb. 6, when deputies from the Denver Sheriff’s Department arrived at the 2500 block of S. Quitman Street for an eviction. Harford, who had been leasing the property, departed.

Upon starting to clean the home, the homeowner discovered temporary urns and cremated remains, also known as cremains.

The Denver Medical Examiner’s Office (OME) and DPD arrived at the residence and found the body of a deceased woman wrapped in a blanket, along with more cremains in a hearse at the location.

Woman’s Body Discovered in Hearse; Family Mistakenly Used Incorrect Cremains

20 February 2024, Bavaria, Nuremberg: Human remains lie in one of the largest plague graves discovered in Germany. The skeletons were discovered during construction work on the building site for a new retirement home.


It was determined that the deceased individual was a 63-year-old woman who passed away from natural causes in August 2022.

According to the police, they suspect that her body was stored in the hearse since her passing, as stated by DPD Major Crimes Division Commander Matt Clark.

The family was contacted, and they informed the police that Harford had previously provided them with what they thought were the cremains of their loved one.

All the cremated remains discovered in this case were handled by professionals, according to the police.
