In Philly, a pair of brothers who ran a funeral home admitted to allowing at least 244 corpses to be carved up without families' permission and without medical tests. Skin, bones, tendons and other parts -- some of them diseased -- were then sold around the country for dental implants, knee and hip replacements, and other procedures.
Some bodies were only torsos by the time the hacking was done, said Assistant District Attorney Evangelia Manos.
The plundered corpses even included that of "Masterpiece Theatre" host Alistair Cooke.
