Summary WSMV-TV found that "for more than two decades, the University of Tennessee has conducted death research, using real bodies. Research unlike any other in the world. The studies are publicly-funded, though no one has ever questioned the methods and ethics behind them." The investigation "uncovered shocking violations of state law, disregard for veterans rights and the deception of grieving families."
