Human tissue company closed

7th March 2006

A New Jersey company, Biomedical Tissue Services, that supplied human tissue for surgical procedures and transplants, has been accused of conspiring to steal tissue from the corpses of people who never gave permission to be donors.

The four defendents, also including those from a Funeral Home, have been charged with enterprise corruption, body stealing and opening graves, and unlawful dissection.  They also allegedly forged death certificates and consent forms for organ donation.
