The School: Lynn University The Scandal: A Killer Deal on Dead Bodies

Who could pass up a great deal like this: 600 corpses for $110? Not Lynn University's mortuary science program. The school had discovered the Sam's Club of funeral companies. Turns out this deal on dead bodies was too good to be true. Hate it when that happens.

For three years, Lynn University received illegally obtained corpses from some sleazy fellow. The school claimed to be caught in a scam. The corpses, intended for cremation, were sent to Lynn University for embalming without the families' permission. Soon after the families found out college students were playing Operation on loved ones' cadavers, the mortuary science program kicked the bucket.
