Shows have been complete entertainment, especially for a live audience but one show at the Portland Marriott hotel ballroom was a complete disrespect to an entire family.
David Saunders and their family have previously agreed to donate his corpse for medical study purposes only, not for a public audience show.
Although the event’s organizer, founder of DeathScience.org Jeremy Ciliberto claims that the donor and his family did give consent.
In a statement, he said, “I can guarantee that that man knew his body would be used for medical research.”
But an administrator for Med Ed Labs, the firm that sold Saunders’ corpse to Ciliberto, said Ciliberto was “beyond” dishonest in his dealings with Med Ed. Obteen Nassiri said Cilberto claimed he would use the body for a medical class.
Considering the risks along with the show, David Saunders has died of COVID-19 so meaning a potentially infectious body was dissected at an event where people were invited to examine and touch the body.
Nassiri on the other hand could not explain why he supplied a COVID-infected donor to a client, although he said his company usually checks that out that is still not a good point to dissect a corpse on a live ‘paying’ audience.
A funeral director, Mike Clark of Baton Rouge Louisiana have said in a statement, “It makes me feel saddened that this gentleman was not given the dignity and the respect that he deserved and what he thought and his family thought that would be happening to his body as the centerpiece of an autopsy and dissection before a live, paying audience.”
“I was totally horrified, Our whole staff was horrified that this is what had happened to a gentleman that he and his family thought that his body was going for the advancement of medical students,” Clark added.
Kimberly DiLeo, the chief medical death investigator for the Multnomah County, Oregon, the medical examiner has also said, “We feel that this was not respectful and certainly not ethical.
The intent was for medical purposes but the way they have done it, it sounded like a money scheme where the show collects $500 per person.
Rest in Peace, David.
