An Illinois father and son have been charged with selling body parts that tested positive for HIV, sepsis and other diseases. The parts were originally donated to their company for research purposes. They, illegally, sold the diseased parts to other medical research companies for up to $100,000.

(AP/CNN) - An Illinois man and his son have been charged in Michigan in an investigation of diseased body parts used for research and education.

Federal prosecutors say researchers paid to use cadavers without knowing they had tested positive for infectious diseases. The latest charges are related to an investigation of a Detroit-area man who was sentenced last year to nine years in prison.

Donald Greene Sr. is charged with wire fraud. His son, Donald Greene II, is charged with knowing about the scheme but failing to report it. They were associated with Biological Resource Center of Rosemont, Illinois, which provided the remains to medical professionals for a fee.

Body brokering has been around forever. I remember reading one a years ago where a family donated their son to 'science' but then found out his body was sold and parts of his skin were used for penis enlargement surgeries. Lmao

Wouldn't they have been arrested for this regardless of being diseased or not...

No. It's called body brokering. Family signs the body over for 'science'.


Sometimes they get a box back with 'ashes'

Can't say I'd mind my body being used for some dude's penis enlargement after I was dead!

Last year was the only year I did't bring it out. Don't want to let it sit, need to drive it.
