Michael S. Burg Calls for State and Federal Regulation for Body Donation Facilities
On March 3, 2022, a box containing severed human heads was stolen from a vehicle parked in the Central Park neighborhood. The package was identified with the words “Science Care,” the name of the company whose services include donating human remains for medical research. This case is currently under investigation by Denver Police, and Michael Burg is calling for state and federal regulations in the body donation industry.
Michael Burg was interviewed by Michael Roberts, an investigative reporter with Denver’s Westword media publication. During his interview, Michael Burg stated, “It’s time for all the states and the federal government to regulate this, just like they regulate organ donation. They need to make sure that people who are vulnerable because they’ve lost a loved one are protected because if they find out something happened to their loved one’s body, they have so much guilt. That should never happen.”
