I don't think there's any doubt that Law & Order will be filming an episode on this topic next week...


One (dead) man's garbage is another man's treasure.


"I don't think there's any doubt that Law & Order will be filming an episode on this topic next week..."

Was thinking the same thing. Pretty alaborate scheme they had going there. The online articles don't appear to show you the x-rays. Kinda wierd seeing an elbow pipe where a hip bone should have been. Hope the f**kers rot in HE!!.


I hardly think of my fathers body which was butchered and sold off as garbage!!Even after these swine took everything they could

Nicole Black

Descrated--I'm awfully sorry to hear that your father was one of the victims. What these men did was a horrible thing. Your family and your father absolutely deserved better.


Nicole, Thank you for your kind words. We very much appreciate them.This has been a very difficult time for us.My Godfather suffered a massive stroke after he heard what happened yesterdaynight.He did not treat it as a subject of humor like wdegraw

Nicole Black

Descrated-I'm sorry to hear about your Godfather, as well.

And, in wdegraw's defense, he's regular commenter here, a nice guy and a former prosecutor. I'm sure he meant no offense.

Lawyers are oftentimes faced with horrible, sad situations in the cases that we deal with, and the only way to deal with that sort of thing on a daily basis is to become a bit detached from the realities of a particular case.

And, for many, one way of dealing with a particularly awful case is to inject some humor into the situation. I realize it may come off as a bit callous, but I'm pretty sure that wdegraw would not have made that comment, had he envisioned that a relative of one of the victims would stumble upon that post in this legal blog.

In any event, I'm so sorry to hear that you're faced with such a sad and tragic situation. I hope that your family is able to stay strong.


I'm sure "desecrated", if s/he is a real person, never made a joke that could hurt someone else's feelings. We are talking about a dentist grave robber. Terrible for the victims, I am sure. But taking offense to a witty comment by WDegraw is firing at the wrong ship! Talk to Mike the dentist...


I am a real person who does not refer to other peoples dead relatives as garbage or condone the same.Nor would I make such callous jokes regarding someones loved ones. Witty? While certainly not on the same scale,do you find Auschwitz jokes funny too? Or try to defend them to relatives of victims?


I am sorry to hear of your troubles but you should have read the comment more carefully, it would have spared you some distress. Degraw didn't call anybody garbage.
