On this episode we discuss how the Brooklyn Bodysnatcher Michael Mastromarino had his dentistry license taken away, only to obtain a new license to supply tissue banks. He established a network of funeral homes that would supply him bodies, so he could illegally harvest them & forge paperwork to make the organ donation look legal.
