>>The New York Daily News says some of his bones were removed without the family's permission and sold for transplants.
I for one am not sure that this is true..
That would mean that , just after he died, IN A HOSPITAL , someone came at him with a bone saw ( LOUD!) , or began to open up his legs, arms or what have you ( Messy) and noone saw this?
To my understanding morgue's do NOT have the equipment to do such things.
The last time I was in a morgue ( about 10= years ago) their tools were fairly crude and simple.
Small hammers to break the bones so the body could lay straight . Simple glue for eyes, mouth, etc.. and if the body was to be embalmed, it was hooked with IV's in the ankles. Makeup and simple "body cleaning" tools were all to be found.
Depending on how much work needed to be done on the body for presentation preperation.. they were often sent out. ( ie- organ removal etc)
i dunno... I guess it was possible, but then my next question is who ( doctors/insurance companies) would OK a transplant from someone who had cancer?
If that could be proven by the person who recieved these bones.. talk about a HUGE law suit.. and all above named will pay for it..
Things that make you go HHHhhhmmmmmmmm
