22 Jan 2006 Wecht Indicted for Cadaver-Trading
For folks in western Pennsylvania, this is big news indeed.
Few government corruption cases include charges of cadaver-trading, but the case against doctor/lawyer/county-coroner-for-life Cyril Wecht doesn’t stop there. 84 counts in all.
Addendum 1/22: If this article is any indication, the Wecht indictment must be quite an interesting read. County forensics experts walking dogs, public employees buying nose plugs, unrecognizable chauffeurs and, as Eric Heyl put it, “corpse bartering. Let’s not forget the corpse bartering.”
