Body Donation Investigation

The Detroit Division of the FBI is conducting an investigation into the activities of the following human body donation companies/programs:

  • Biological Resource Center (Phoenix, Arizona)
  • Biological Resource Center of Illinois (Rosemont/Schiller Park, Illinois)
  • International Biological, Inc. (Detroit, Michigan)
  • Arthroscopy Association of North America (Schiller Park, Illinois)
  • Anatomical Service, Inc. (Schiller Park, Illinois)

If you or your organization acquired human anatomical material from any of these companies or if you were involved in the donation of a loved one to any of these organizations, we would like your assistance in obtaining more information that will aid in the investigation.

To obtain critical information from the next-of-kin of body donors in this case and from end users of the human anatomical material, we ask that you complete the below online questionnaire relevant to your situation.

Due to the large number of donor families and end users potentially affected, the FBI will only contact respondents who indicate that they would like to be contacted. Regardless, the questionnaires will allow us to compile valuable information in this case. We greatly appreciate your assistance.

If you have further questions, please send e-mails to .
