USA Today (Internet / Print) 04/28/06 http://www.usatoday.com/tech/science/2006-04-27-body-parts-sold_x.htm Multiple allegations of bodies swiped from medical schools have surfaced. At the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston, employee Allen Tyler supervised anatomical services, overseeing bodies that were donated to the school. He worked in the morgue. But in 2002, he was fired after a university audit led to suspicions that he'd provided body parts — including more than 200 fingernails to a pharmaceutical company — for illegal profit. The FBI closed the investigation after Tyler died of cancer in 2002. FBI special agent Jim Walsh in Houston says Tyler stole bodies donated to the university. "He was stealing from the university. He was telling the university he'd received a body that was unusable, diseased or in an accident, but then he'd put it on ice and sell it," Walsh says.
