Fort Lee Bodysnatcher Sentenced in Brooklyn

It seems that whenever there is something underhanded and criminal, there is always a New Jersey connection. Don't get me wrong, I actually really believe the Garden State is absolutely the best place in this entire country. (Location, location, location.) Nevertheless, we have our share of the tragic (9/11), the bizarre ("what's actually buried in the Meadowlands?"), and the downright creepy.

Case in point, the strange tale of Michael Mastromarino, the one-time oral surgeon who turned to the grisly business of human butchery and organ sales out of his Fort Lee business, Biomedical Tissue Services. Recently sentenced to 18-54 years for his crimes, Mastromarino apologized in court for running the multimillion dollar operation that passed along diseased body parts to hospital patients for transplants.
