How the body of an Arizona great-grandmother ended up as part of a U.S. Army blast test
Excerpted:
No federal law regulates body brokers like BRC, and no U.S. government agency monitors what happens to cadavers pledged for use in medical education and research.



First thing Monday I'm calling the local DMV to find out how I remove my organ donor status from my license.
This is unconscionable. :crying: God be with the family of this poor woman.

I guess it would come down to...What is this body worth after I leave it? To me it would be nothing but rotting meat.....But that's me...The person is what gives value to the body...not the other way around....But that's only my opinion...As I see it...the only offense here is the betrayal of a trust.
