Horrifying “Human Chop Shop” Must Pay $58 Million To Victims Families
A group of people sued a body donation company in Arizona after they were tricked into believing that the donated bodies were going to be used for research. But that’s not quite what happened.
Sure I guess you could classify it as “research” but not in the traditional sense.
The bodies that were donated were chopped up and used for things such as ballistics testing. During the search of the facility, police discovered the head of a man inside of a freezer after his body was donated 6 years ago. She was awarded a $5.5 million share of the money from the lawsuit, but there is no amount large enough to undo the damage.
According to The Blaze,
The Maricopa County Superior Court jury made the ruling on Tuesday against Stephen Gore, the owner of Biological Resource Center, and in favor of ten of twenty-one plaintiffs who sued his company.
Plaintiffs alleged that they were deceived and told the bodies of their loved ones were going to be used for research. Instead, they were sold for other uses, including ballistics testing.
The Arizona Republic documented the story of Gwen Aloia, one of the plaintiffs who won $5.5 million in the case. She had signed over the body of her husband Louis in 2013 to the Biological Resource Center while he was in hospice care.
FBI agents later discovered the head of her husband in a freezer during their investigation.
Stephen Gore, the owner of the facility said that he should have been more open about what his company was doing with the bodies that were donated to them. Well, duh!
One more insane detail that was discovered during the search of the facility was a large cooler full of penises. No one was able to determine what they were being saved or used for. Overall, they found the site to be very disturbing.
