Alistair Cooke cut up and sold

Gruesome news from Philadelphia. Two former funeral directors have admitted to “selling cadavers to a ring that cut them up and sold the body parts to hospitals for implants”. Not only that, but one of the bodies was that of esteemed foreign correspondent and voice of Letter from America, Alistair Cooke.

One of the bodies belonged to Alistair Cooke, the British foreign correspondent known for his “Letter from America” for the BBC and as host of the PBS television show “Masterpiece Theater”. He died of cancer in 2004. link

The corpses were dismembered by a team of “cutters” in a scheme a grand jury report last October called “ghoulish, greedy, dangerous and criminal.”
