Description

This project recounts what happens to the unclaimed dead in the state of Maryland. The reporters followed a disgruntled granddaughter who said she did not want her grandmother used for medical science. But grandma's husband--whom she met in a nursing home and had been married to for just a few months--didn't want to deal with the body and was ready to let the body go unclaimed. Unclaimed bodies in Maryland are used for medical science, and all of them have stories. Here's Nancy Porter and the granddaughter who fought to keep her relative off the operating table.
