Meet the Author

Philip Guyett was born and raised in Covina, CA. His career in forensics and tissue recovery began when he trained as a Riverside County Coroner reserve in 1993. By 2004, Guyett had worked as the Director of the Willed Body Program at a southern California medical school, ran a private whole body donation service, was the first non-hospital based establishment to recover research tissue for the Cooperative Human Tissue Network, and started recovering whole bone and skin grafts for transplant purposes at his Las Vegas, NV business.
In December of 2005, Guyett decided to alter some paperwork to rid himself of some donor bodies and close his tissue recovery service, Donor Referrals Services, located in North Carolina. His decision to do so caused one of the FDA’s largest human tissue recalls in recent history. As a result, in 2009 Guyett is now serving an eight year federal prison sentence for three counts of wire fraud.
