That story sure leaves a lot of room for investigation.
It is, simply put, very strange how the family of the young (23 year old ) victim, were not able to have the body of their son returned to them complete. Instead, the coroner's office retained the heart for "further investigation".
The family lost their case in a quick decision made under highly questionable legalities.
The story has been buried here and taken from the front pages while people were distracted by the usual issues which we have seen for over three years.
This "body snatching" is a real news story.

Human organ "traffiking" is on the rise and though I think Steve Jobs is an honest man whom I respect for his position against the mobs of "Heritage Conservationists" who he battled with aplomb while, in the process,he managed to become the richest American, AND dismiss the suit of the "ugly house".
Anyone who says that the rich do not have "perks" is just naive to the American way of life.
Since the young man whose heart was kept by the coroner for "home work" or whatever reason, is very odd and E.A. Poe (ish).
The coroner is just a hop skip and a jump to Stanford...who people in
this area consider the very best hospital according to comments made in regards to other issues.

If I failed to mention that I didn't remind people that Jobs managed to get a liver after waiting for 6 months and almost died in that time, DID get a new liver.
This is to defend R.Gordon's (not Richard) comment about "body snatching" and who is accused of being a "conspiracy theorist"...
The movie COMA was about the same thing.....AND the 23 year old victim did not have a heart problem which killed him.
Time to do a remake about Michael Creighton or Chricton' book. I am tired of 3D cartoon movies and would like to see a reality thriller.
To any aspiring screen writers...think about it.
