Wow. Just wow.The former head of UCLA's cadaver program and a businessman were indicted Friday on eight felony counts involving black market sales of human body parts. Henry Reid, the former director of UCLA's willed body program, allegedly sold donated body parts to businessman Ernest Nelson, who then resold them to medical, pharmaceutical and hospital research companies.
"As a result, Ernest Nelson was able to supply over 20 of his clients with hundreds of body parts and received over $1 million for the supplied body parts," according to the indictment.
