A Detroit web journal reports on a gory case of real-life Gothic horror.
Steve Neavling begins by updating us on an unfolding story.
The grisly details in the criminal case against a Grosse Pointe Park cadaver dealer, accused of cutting up infected bodies with chainsaws, shipping blood-filled coolers of fresh heads to medical researchers and lying to families about what he did with their loved one’s remains, just took another gruesome and bizarre turn.
It's about fetuses and multiple levels of corruption:
Federal agents who raided Arthur Rathburn’s warehouse in Detroit in December 2013 found four preserved fetuses, which appear to be in their second trimester, immersed in a liquid that included human brain tissue, according to confidential photos recently reviewed by Reuters.
Rathburn is accused of defrauding medical researchers and educators by sending them infected body parts, without the families’ consent, from a rundown warehouse that a U.S. district judge said “appears to be the hub of the illegal activity” and is connected to a larger criminal investigation involving other body dealers.
There's more, like "Others evidence collected during the raid shows rotting, un-embalmed heads soaked in mouthwash and water, human remains washed down the drain and body parts in the garbage."
