This guy was supposed to cremate the bodies but didn't. There were 19 babies, and about 300 fetuses that were a result of miscarriages and abortions. The oldest was about 16 gestational weeks... This happened in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania. The guy is from McKeesport. He was paid 45 dollars each to take care of them properly, but he didn't..He plead guilty to theft, and abuse of corpse...It started in 2000 and ended in 2002 when his contract was up...He had kept them in his garage for 2 years...This is just way beyond words...His ex-wife turned him in...

That is really sick. I would think someone would feel bad about not doing the right thing. I think if I knew someone doing that I would turn them in too. How sad.

I am not exactly sure but it wasn't anything good.

Does it say it's just because he couldn't be bothered to dispose of them properly, or did he just want to keep them? That is pretty disgusting as they must have been decaying unless he had preserved them.

....They were is plastic bags and plastic containers..Financial problems and divorce kept him from doing the right thing..He was paid 45 dollars for each one over 16 weeks, and 1 dollar a pound for the rest of the fetuses..
