Man Convicted of Stealing Corpses and Selling Parts

June 27, 2008


Michael Mastromarino, a former oral surgeon who owned Biomedical Tissue Services and was responsible for a ghoulish scheme that involved stealing hundreds of corpses and selling the parts for millions of dollars, was found guilty and will spend 18 to 54 years in prison. The bodies were carved up without permission and were not medically screened. Oddly enough, one of the bodies that got carved up and butchered for pieces was that of “Masterpiece Theatre” host Alistair Cooke. They were sold around the country for dental implants, knee and hip replacements, and other procedures. About 10,000 people received tissue supplied by BTS.

Mastromarino has admitted running the operation from 2001 to 2005 and pleaded guilty to charges of enterprise corruption, body stealing and reckless endangerment.

As the above picture shows, he was using PVC piping to fill out some of the missing bulk after removing organs and such.
