The shocking details of the FBI's 2014 raid of the Biological Resource Center in Phoenix, Arizona are being released as part of a lawsuit filed by 33 people who thought they donated the bodies of their loved ones for scientific purposes.
Instead, what the FBI agents found would make the Saw movies look like a children's film. Former Phoenix FBI special agent Mark Cwynar said he "personally observed various unsettling scenes" during the raid on the facility. Those scenes included a "cooler filled with male genitalia," "a bucket of heads, arms and legs," and "infected heads," as well as a male torso with the head of a woman sewn on top hanging on the wall like "Frankenstein."
"This is a horror story. It's just unbelievable. This story is unbelievable," said Troy Harp, who donated the bodies of his mother and grandmother to the facility. He believed their remains would be used for medical research and used to help find a cure for cancer.
Instead, their bodies were cut apart using chainsaws and sold to the highest bidders.
Stephen Gore, the company's owner, was sentenced to one year of deferred jail time and four years of probation after he pleaded guilty to illegal control of an enterprise. He is due back in court in October to face the families who are suing him for mishandling the corpses of their loved ones and failing to fulfill the promises made in the consent forms they signed.
