Infamous Brooklyn 'Body Parts' Scandal Never Seems to Go Away

Check Out Those New Implants!

Four employees of the same biomedical supply company charged in the infamous Brooklyn “body parts” scandal secretly removed skin, bone and other body parts from 36 corpses awaiting cremation at three funeral homes in Rochester as well, according to the Brooklyn Daily Eagle.

In case you were out of the country over the last year, the owner of Biomedical Tissue Services -- Brooklyn dentist Michael Mastromarino -- and others are accused of removing bone and tissue from 1,077 (mostly diseased) bodies at Brooklyn and other New York-area funeral homes without the permission of families. The (mostly diseased) parts were sold for things like dental implants and hip replacements to people who thought they were getting nice clean body parts.

Beyond this, we dare not go. But the Eagle does! More here.
