Southern Nevada operator Joe Collazo, who wasn´t cited, said he regretted the incident. Court records detail intense competition to supply bodies to a customer operating a medical school in the Caribbean. Fasold said Bio Care cited several sample possibilities, including that her father´s body might be used to train surgeons on knee replacement techniques.
Gail Williams-Sears, a nurse in Newport News, Virginia, said neither she nor her father realized Science Care might profit when he donated his body before his death in 2013. Science Care had been selling the school cadavers for $12,000 each.
GenLife secured an order for 15 bodies by charging $11,000 apiece. “With what we do, you don´t sell it,” Rogers said of body donation in his testimony. In Honolulu, police were called twice to storage facilities leased by body broker Bryan Avery in 2011 and 2012.
Simple cremation, an increasingly popular option, costs $400 to $1,000 or more. “But if they don´t have money, they may end up with the option of last resort: body donation. In the Southern Nevada case, officials found they could do little more than issue a minor pollution citation to one of the workers involved.
The average funeral, including coffin, memorial service and burial, costs about $7,000, according to the National Funeral Directors Association. “It´s educating people and allowing them to make an informed decision. Surgeons say no mannequin or computer simulation can replicate the tactile response and emotional experience of practicing on human body parts.
As her father lay dying, Fasold said, employees from Albuquerque broker Bio Care visited father and daughter, and made a heartfelt pitch: The generous gift of his body to science would benefit medical students, doctors and researchers. When a body is donated, few states provide rules governing dismemberment or use, or offer any rights to a donor’s next of kin.
Few rules mean few consequences when bodies are mistreated. Cadavers and body parts are used to train medical students, doctors, nurses and dentists. Walt Mitchell, a Phoenix businessman involved in the startup of three brokers, said one reason the industry attracts entrepreneurs is that businesses can profit handsomely from selling a donated product.
Bodies and parts can be bought, sold and leased, again and again. Because only four states closely track donations and sales, the breadth of the market for body parts remains unknown. The second is financial: Body donation saves a family money. Although Science Care countered by offering a 33 percent discount, it failed to win back the business. Paramedics, for example, use human heads and torsos to learn how to insert breathing tubes.
But data obtained under public record laws from those states – New York, Virginia, Oklahoma and Florida – provide a snapshot. And then we combine that with all the branding and the touch points and the look and feel. Williams Jr, who lived 88 years, served in World War II and the Korean War, earned a master´s degree in social work and spent decades in Maryland state government advocating for children.
As a result, it can be difficult to track what becomes of the bodies of donors, let alone ensure that they are handled with dignity. But, Corbett added, “we suggest families consider (United Tissue) first because they are local and time delay is critical,” obliquely referring to the fact that bodies decompose quickly.
Donated bodies play an essential role in medical education, training and research. GenLife, which changed its name to United Tissue Network, has since grown into one of the nation´s larger body brokers. Both times, police concluded that Avery committed no crimes because no state law applied. “These families were devastated and injured in a deep way. The trade-secrets lawsuit was settled confidentially in 2012.
In a recent interview, Brandenburg said that she, too, was frustrated to find that no law protects people like Fasold and her father. A spokesman for United Tissue declined to comment on the case. He said the industry would benefit from oversight that offers peace of mind to donors, brokers and researchers. Garland Shreves, who founded Phoenix broker Research for Life in 2009, said he invested more than $2 million in quality-control procedures and medical equipment, including $265,000 on an X-ray machine to scan cadavers for surgical implants.
“It was outrageous,” the former prosecutor said. “People who have financial means get the chance to have the moral, ethical and spiritual debates about which method to choose,” said Dawn Vander Kolk, an Illinois hospice social worker. Rogers likened Science Care´s method for pricing the bodies it sells to playing “poker.
Former executive Cover testified that “net revenue per donor” – cash earned per donated body after expenses – was a key metric. Each time, they found decomposing human remains. Reuters calculated that from 2011 through 2015, private brokers received at least 50,000 bodies and distributed more than 182,000 body parts. Ezzell and Corbett said they are passive investors. “The need for human bodies is absolutely vital,” said Chicago doctor Armand Krikorian, past president of the American Federation for Medical Research.

Last year, Science Care received about 5,000 bodies from donors, the company said. Breedlove said consent forms signed by United Tissue donors permitted the dissection and transfer of body parts to for-profit entities, including the one he owned. Authorities ultimately recovered the other body parts of Fasold´s father and returned them to her for proper cremation.
In February, the partners acquired another major body broker that it merged with Science Care. Last year, the same private equity partners expressed interest in buying two other cadaver firms, according to interviews and a letter reviewed by Reuters.
“It´s a kind of treatment that would have never come to light if we did not have whole-body donation. Science Care´s success during this time is reflected in Jim and Josie Rogers´ federal tax records for the years 2012, 2013 and 2014. In Colorado, a family operating a funeral home ran a company that dissected and distributed body parts from the same building.
Science Care displays the tissue bank association´s seal of approval on marketing and sales documents. He cited a recent potential cure for Type 1 diabetes developed by studying pancreases from body donors. Medical school officials in Pennsylvania and Florida report that competition from Science Care and other brokers has reduced the number of bodies donated to schools to train students.
That December, local health records show, someone contacted authorities to report odd activity in the courtyard. The nonprofit United Tissue also has supplied donated human remains to Breedlove´s for-profit company, Anatomical Innovations.

Science Care markets itself more aggressively than medical schools, they say, and offers donors more favorable terms, such as picking up the body for free. In 2009, Oklahoma funeral home owners Darin Corbett and Hal Ezzell invested $650,000 for a 50 percent stake in a company created by former executives of a large Phoenix-based body broker, court records show.
Reuters reviewed audit reports for those years after they became exhibits in a lawsuit the couple filed against the Internal Revenue Service. Some morticians have made body donation part of their own businesses. But Reuters found that, despite warning signs, state and federal officials failed to rein in Rathburn for more than a decade, allowing him to continue to acquire hundreds of body parts and rent them out for profit.
From 2011 through 2015, the last five years for which public records are available, Science Care received at least 17,000 bodies and sold or leased more than 51,500 body parts. But without consistent laws or a clear oversight authority – local, state or national – “nobody is accounting for anything,” said Todd Olson, an anatomy and structural biology professor at Yeshiva University´s Albert Einstein College of Medicine.
“We don´t think of businesses using bodies to increase their profits. “I wanted to let you know of a few specimens we have an overstock that we are trying to place before the end of the year,” United Tissue Executive Director Alyssa Harrison wrote to a bone research organization. That company sold authentic human skulls, elbows, livers and eyeballs, among other body parts. In three years alone, one for-profit broker earned at least $12. She said she had been making burial insurance payments to provide for a formal ceremony and gravesite when she dies. Most also insist they don´t “sell” body parts but instead only charge “fees” for services. Collazo said his forgery conviction is irrelevant and the theft allegation untrue.
Twenty-five of the 34 body brokers were for-profit corporations; the rest were nonprofits. That´s why he cited production methods perfected by Ray Kroc, the visionary who turned a hamburger stand into a fast-food empire, said an executive who worked closely with Rogers.
The company bills itself as the “world´s leading whole-body donation program,” and Rogers credits Science Care with bringing reliability to the industry. Brokers can also reduce expenses by forgoing the meticulous quality control procedures and sophisticated training called for by a national accreditation organization, the American Association of Tissue Banks.
His business followed industry best practices, he said, and served an important public service to the medical community. But a for-profit company co-owned by Ezzell, Corbett and United Tissue President David Breedlove is paid to provide management services, leased equipment and loans. Current CEO O´Connell said sales today are different, involving a complex mix of cost-plus pricing and supply-demand metrics.
Science Care officials told Indiana and Illinois it sets prices by using “cost-plus pricing, rather than supply-demand metrics. The Norman, Oklahoma firm, United Tissue Network, converted to nonprofit status in 2012 to comply with a change in state law. Prices can vary, he said, depending upon a customer´s needs and a body´s condition.
government closely regulates. No other state law regulated the handling of donated bodies or protected the next of kin.

Such characterizations, however, are contradicted by other documents Reuters reviewed, including court filings in which brokers clearly attach monetary value to donated remains. Some can use bodies that underwent certain surgeries during their lives; others cannot.
Rogers built a corporate culture that stressed the importance of the finer details, former employees said. ” In other words, the company said, prices are tied to the costs of preparing a body for customers, rather than to market conditions. Nothing – not even putting together packing materials – was left to chance.
Given the number of body brokers that currently operate in America, academics and others familiar with the industry say regular inspections of facilities and reviews of donor consent forms wouldn´t place a big burden on government. From 2012 through 2014, Rogers and his co-owner, wife Josie, parlayed the donated dead into at least $12. Some customers, he said by way of example, may accept overweight or underweight bodies for research and training; others may not.
Body brokers are also known as non-transplant tissue banks. Science Care had “10 different policies, procedures for building a box” to ensure that shipped body parts arrived safely, securely and without damage, Rogers testified. In Indiana and Illinois last year, Science Care won exemption from state sales taxes with its argument that it provides a service, not a product. Every donation – every body – arrives with a different value, he said.
In a statement to Reuters, he said he sold Science Care to spend more time with his family. 5 million stemming from the body part business, an upcoming Reuters report will show. The deals never materialized. Science Care founder Jim Rogers aimed to provide customers with the same cuts from cadavers no matter which Science Care branch handled the order.
A diabetic who is raising her deceased friend´s young grandsons, McLendon earned $38,000 a year and recently had her car repossessed. Selling hearts, kidneys and tendons for transplant is illegal. Jim Rogers, 49, declined interview requests. But no federal law governs the sale of cadavers or body parts for use in research or education.
“While we are excited about the organic growth prospects for Science Care, we also view the company as a unique platform for possible acquisitions” in the body parts market, wrote Northlane Capital partner Sean Eagle.
Through interviews and public records, Reuters identified Southern Nevada and 33 other body brokers active across America during the past five years. “They were fees all across the board that were really – there was no rhyme, reason or consistency,” Rogers testified. ” They prefer to be known as “non-transplant tissue banks.

Many can operate in near anonymity, quietly making deals to obtain cadavers and sell the parts. In his statement to Reuters, Rogers said: “Science Care has always been chiefly motivated by compliance and quality service, not by price.
It includes instances in which bodies were used without donor or next-of-kin consent; donors were misled about how bodies would be used; bodies were dismembered by chainsaws instead of medical instruments; body parts were stored in such unsanitary conditions that they decomposed; or bodies were discarded in medical waste incinerators instead of being properly cremated.
Potpourri also runs Whatever Works, an online catalog that markets products ranging from garden tools and kitchen wares to sex toys and pest repellent. Science Care´s 2007 strategic plan called for an “aggressive marketing campaign to increase donor rate” and “actively target new clients” who will snap up “low demand inventory” – body parts that don´t sell well, such as hands and feet.

Inside Bio Care´s warehouse, authorities said they found at least 127 body parts belonging to 45 people. “It´s very much built on relationships,” Rogers testified. A crawl through historical exam data (1996 to 2014) via the National Conference of Bar Examiners reveals a wide variance in pass rates from state to state: Even assuming an apprentice settles this dilemma, fulfills four years of independent study, and passes all precursory exams, the bar exam is not in his or her favor.
None of the states that offer the apprenticeship alternative offer any assistance in finding a supervising lawyer: “Finding one willing to take on the responsibility of educating a new lawyer,” writes The New York Times
, “can be difficult. “All of the bodies appeared to have been dismembered by a coarse cutting instrument, such as a chainsaw,” a police detective wrote in an affidavit.

, all American lawyers had to serve a seven-year clerkship before being eligible to practice.
Of course, added to these costs (both for law school students and apprentices) are bar exam test prep courses, which can run

Under Sisi’s presidency, thousands of dissidents have been jailed, the government has shut down independent media and heavily restricted the conducting of opinion polls. Gladstone’s research indicates that the person with the $1,000 will feel more financially secure (and happier), “which makes no sense from an economic point of view,” Gladstone says.
“It’s such a waste of time for someone to spend three years in this program but not have anything at the end. My parents had the same amount of money before and after they remembered the pool; the cost savings weren’t real. “All this negatively affects the political climate in Egypt and increases reluctance to run against Sisi,” Mohamed Anwar al-Sadat, nephew of a former president who once backed Sisi but is now considering running against him, said last week.
