Dem bones

Charles No Comments

Here’s one of those ‘only in America’ stories:

The owner of Memory Gardens Cemetery says he did nothing wrong disposing of human remains that were used for medical research. A resident called police after finding the piles of bones out in the open on cemetery property … Parker says he’s sorry if people are hurt, “It tends to get sensationalized because it’s a taboo subject. It’s death. This is the family’s choices to donate the bodies and if they wanted the remains back they certainly could have said so at any time.” Sgt. Ben Renya says there are no charges to file because there is no law on the books which says this is illegal.

Full story + video here. Hat-tip to Funeral Consumers Alliance for this — a beautiful body which, if you don’t know it, you need to set aside an hour or two to check out.
