Incredibly a organ donation company sent body parts illegally from New Mexico to a waste disposal facility in Kansas City. The owner of Organ Donation Company Bio Care was recently arrested on Felony charges. Cremations were not performed as agreed. This is cremation fraud.
Apr 03, 2010 (Albuquerque Journal – McClatchy-Tribune Information Services) —
Investigators are exploring a theory that Paul Montano shipped human remains to a Kansas medical waste disposal company as a way of cutting business costs, police said Friday.
With the cost of cremating a body ranging from $600 to $1,800, Montano and his firm, Bio Care Inc., could have cut costs by sending some of the remains to Stericycle Inc., a medical waste disposal firm, said APD spokeswoman Nadine Hamby.
“He could have saved money by cremating only some of the bodies,” Hamby said. “He had to pay to cremate the bodies, so that could have been a motive.”
Police arrested Montano, 31, on three counts of felony fraud Wednesday after human remains, including seven heads and torsos, turned up at the Stericycle plant in Kansas City.
