Body snapped from where it was going

When David Saunders, 98, died of COVID-19 in late August, his family donated his body to Med Ed Labs for medical and scientific research. But KING-TV in Portland, Oregon reports that Med Ed sold the body to Jeremy Ciliberto, the organizer of the Oddities and Curiosities Expo, which is touring the country charging viewers $ 500 to get a person’s autopsy and dissection in person to watch bodywork.

When investigators alerted Mike Clark, the undertaker in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, who had prepared Saunders’ body for the donation, he was ashamed: “I was absolutely horrified … he and his family thought his body was being used for medical advancement. ” Students.”

Instead, it went to a Marriott ballroom where attendees were asked to examine and touch the body – which may still be contagious. Ciliberto says he could “guarantee” that the deceased and his family knew what his body would be used for, but a spokesman for Med Ed says the organizer is “beyond dishonest”.
