This episode covers the deceptive practices of a "body broker" in Phoenix, Arizona.
Show Notes

This episode discusses the investigation into a Phoenix, Arizona Chop Shop. Now, most people are aware that a chop shop is where stolen cars are dismantled so that the parts can be sold. But this crime did not take place in a traditional chop shop and, in fact, it doesn't involve cars parts at all. This case involves a human body chop shop, its deceptive business practices, and unimaginable mistreatment of bodies that were donated in the name of science.
