More on the Latest Body Parts Scandal

From an AP story on the Alistair Cooke body parts scandal:

The medical records that accompanied the body of “Masterpiece Theatre” host Alistair Cooke were wrong in just about every possible way.

His name was misspelled. His birthdate was off by 10 years. His Social Security number wasn’t even close. Also wrong were the name of his doctor and the time and cause of his death.

There was even a bogus name and phone number for a family member who supposedly agreed to donate the 95-year-old celebrity’s body parts for tissue transplants.

We've blogged about the scandal here before.
