Alistair Cooke’s bones stolen

This is fucked up.’

“When Cooke died of lung cancer that spread to his bones in March 2004, his body was taken to a funeral home in Manhattan.

Two days later, relatives of the iconic broadcaster received his ashes, which were then scattered in New York’s Central Park.

Now they have been told that body snatchers allegedly surgically removed his bones and sold them for more than $7,000 (£4,000) to a company supplying parts for use in dental implants and various orthopaedic procedures.”


Body snatchers? Selling cancerous bones of famous people? And really for not all that much money??

And apparently this is somewhat common. What is wrong with people?
