Six Feet Lower Than Most: Louis and Gerald Garzone, two brothers who owned and operated a Philadelphia funeral home, were found guilty of selling corpses to a black market trafficker of body parts. The gruesome duo admitted to carving up nearly 250 bodies without family permission and selling them across the country for various purposes: dental implants, hip and knee replacements, and other medical procedures.
