Harold Dillard's family planned to have a memorial with his ashes alongside a mountain stream. Now his loved ones wonder whose ashes they really have.
Darlene Dillard broke down and cried Thursday when she learned that her ex-husband's remains were identified among those found at Stericycle, a Kansas City, Kan., medical waste facility.
"What sick people," the distraught woman said. "That is so sick."
Albuquerque, N.M., police on Thursday arrested the man who they think has the answers to questions from families whose loved ones' bodies were donated to science at an Albuquerque company. The company’s owner, Paul Montano, 31, is in jail charged with three counts of fraud over $500.
Authorities believe Montano, who owns Bio Care, is linked to the seven heads, torso and 12 tubs of body parts found at Stericycle last month.
Court records allege that Montano's business did not provide promised cremations on donated bodies. His alleged motive was not immediately known. Montano pleaded not guilty Thursday at a court hearing in New Mexico, and his bond was set at $50,000.
