Michigan couple charged with renting out disease-infected human heads

DETROIT, MI -- A Grosse Pointe Park couple is accused of renting out human heads that were infected with HIV and other diseases to clients who used the body parts for medical research and training.
Arthur Rathburn, 62 and Elizabeth Rathburn, 55, ran International Biological, Inc., which procured donated human bodies, dismembered them, and provided parts to medical and dental professionals for a rental fee, according to federal prosecutors.
The husband and wife at times got body parts at a discounted cost, when they came from people who died of infectious diseases, investigators allege.
