I remember a place was doing that years ago, filling urns with cement powder and ditching the bodies out back behind the funeral home.

Damn. That's evil.

I hope they receive heavy sentences. The woman didn't seem upset about what she did, she seemed upset that she was caught.

Hess and Koch also shipped bodies and body parts that tested positive for, or belonged to people who died from, infectious diseases including Hepatitis B and C, and HIV, despite certifying to buyers that the remains were disease-free, authorities said.

...the hell?! I get the whole "no one's gonna miss 'em" exploitative business angle, but, this?

They may have actually caused real damage to science, if not to actual scientists, by doing this. Everyone who obtained bodies & body parts for research or teaching purposes now has to review what they've done, either to ensure that the research wasn't affected or to ensure that they didn't contract anything.

Farking horrible, that.

They can haul a lot of human remains in the trucks they use:

Actually, 'Cradle of Filth' refers to baby Jesus laying a manger.

Shh. We've secretly replaced uncle morty with 3 rolls of towels, an ill-fitting ladies' pantsuit, and two mini cupcakes for eyes. Let's see if anyone notices...

Organ harvesting has been a thing as long as bodies have been available.

Black market. Hospitals. Underground networking. Religious rituals. The wealthy.
Money talks.

I remember that story, the guy's crematorium broke, so he stacked the bodies like cordwood.

This is Worse. She set up multiple shell companies, charged the family for cremations, gave the family fake remains, then sold the reminds for profit.

She's Scum.

there is a huge market for body parts worldwide. people needs donor parts - major organs, eyes, cartilage for transplant surgery et cetera. whole bodies are needed for anatomy courses in doctors colleges. bodies and body parts have been legitimate business for a long time. just like everything else, there is the legitimate way and the underhanded way of doing it.

You are more correct than you realize since this is Montrose Colorado - not a decent person to be found in that lot.
