Chop Shop

That New Jersey body parts scandal just keeps going.

There's a big demand for body parts from dead people. But not so much supply. Partly because there's not much immediate incentive to donate. It's not like your family gets cash for saying "Sure, take what you need."

So a plot hatched that was a crossover between the Sopranos and Six Feet Under. At a funeral home, corpses were stripped of some parts that wouldn't be missed. These parts were sold as medical supplies. Only... they weren't checked for diseases the way that real doctors are supposed to do.

People need spare parts!
Won't you share your heart?
