The gruesome details of the find were not made public, but, now, the testimony from one of the FBI agents who conducted the raid has come to light.
In fact, the discovery was so bad that an agent developed PTSD as a result of what he saw in the facility.
Matthew Parker, an FBI agent, said that moving body bags from the site resulted in a PTSD diagnosis, and that, following the raid, he couldn’t sleep after what he had seen. “I couldn’t sleep after seeing that. It was like something out of Frankenstein,” he explained.“It looked like a junkyard chop shop where they are just ripping things apart.”
According to court documents, bodies were piled on top of each other.
It was so bad that there was no apparent identification to indicate what bodies the parts came from, ABC15 reports.
In fact, there were so many that authorities filled 142 body bags.
Disgustingly, one bag held parts from at least thirty-six different people.
The operation was actually so large that officials struggled to properly handle all the retrieved body parts.
But this was just the start of it.
According to Former FBI Assistant, Special Agent Mark Cwynar’s, testimony, agents observed “buckets of heads, arms, and legs” inside the building, located off 24th street and University Drive.
The donated bodies were hacked apart and sewn together using chainsaws.
Horrifyingly, the agent recalled that there was a male torso “with the head removed and replaced with a similar head sewn together in a Frankenstein manner.” The head was from a female.
Many of the body parts were infected.
Agents found a cooler filled with male genitalia as well as several infected heads.
The total number of mistreated body parts that the agents found is utterly sickening.
A harrowing total of ten tons of frozen human remains were found – made up of 1,755 total body parts that included 281 heads, 241 shoulders, 337 legs, and ninety-seven spines.
Because of the sheer scale of the operation, it took a long time to figure out what to do with the remaining body parts.
When plans to cremate the remains stalled, officials brought 3 walk-in freezers to a military base and stacked the body bags inside.
Parts from 851 different people remained in those freezers for almost 3 years before they were cremated, reports Reuters.
As for the company’s owner, Gore, what happened to him?
Well, the families sued over eleven counts, which include mishandling of dead bodily remains, breach of contract, and negligent referral.
Initially, Gore pleaded guilty to fraud, aka, he admitted to misleading customers by shipping them contaminated specimens, but not for actually selling body parts.
And, of course, his company was immediately shut down.
Gore was also sentenced to 1 year of deferred jail time and 4 years of probation following his guilty plea.
However, the investigation is ongoing.
Gore is expected to return to court in October for his crimes, where he will have to come face-to-face with the families that he’s betrayed so horrifically.
Sadly, this business has little to no regulation.
So it’s not surprising that Gore got away with this for so long.
Let’s just hope that the families get the justice that they deserve for their loved ones.
Despite everything, it’s clear that the FBI’s work is very important.
