She wasn't sling them to restaurants?

Right?

Victimless crime.

Unless she was slinging them to restaurants.

When I said it cost an arm and a leg, I wasn't being serious.

Where are the victims here?

That's some murder t.v. series picture they made.

The family members who didn't authorize this and didn't receive the cremation services they paid for.
The research institutes that believed they were buying disease free samples but received infected samples with faked tests

She was probably selling the meat to Boebert to have it served in her restaurant.
 
2022-07-07 1:13:05 AM  
Remember, if the service is free, YOU are the product.

/ also, WOW that lady has spooky dead eyes

Was a pretty thorough investigation done by one of the police's best.

Is this the Illegal Chop Shop?

Why watch Andy Warhol's Frankenstien movie when you can live it instead?

Sold them to who?!? Without clicking the article, Im guessing its to weirdos who want to collect certain bones. Jesus she wasn't selling them with still flesh on them was she? I can't imagine getting into this line of work.

Gotta hand it to her for seeing an opportunity and taking advantage. Points deducted for short cutting the legalities, though.

I believe there's a thriving market in "parting out" donated cadavers for profit. Mostly to testing labs, but some pieces get reused on living folks.

There's also the ethical problem of selling human body parts for profit. Sure, the black market for it already existed, but this woman apparently gave it a helping hand.

Apparently donating bone marrow for transplantation is much easier to do if you are already dead.

Potentially, lots of otherwise innocent people who may now be walking around with hep-C and HIV?

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.

Other than the families and the recipients of the illegal body parts? Society and the State as with many other crimes. We have norms enshrined in Law which say that fraud is wrong and that human remains are to be treated with dignity and respect. She tore those all the way up.

Well, they were free.

It is getting harder to find parts for stuff from the 80s.

Well I learned something new today, I never imagined a day old cadaver would  still have any parts usable to a living person.

all over the place ?

We've ALL had this idea. Every one of us has either been mowing the lawn or picking up the kids when we thought " what If we just tricked the underprivileged into giving us their loved one's bodies and then we could part them out and sell them."

But kudos to her for the follow through
 
2022-07-07 2:18:52 AM  
Fake cremation services?

What an ashhole.

Donation is for suckas, cut my family in for 35% or you can throw all of me in the furnace.

Ah Montrose...a few years ago there was a guy convincing people there they all had meteorites and that they were rich. Turns out people had rocks. And he got charged with fraud. Wacky schemes seem to keep popping up in this town.

It's like no one remembers The Return of the Living Dead, and the whole "fresh cadavers" scene (mildly NSFW).
