Consumer Reports

Cadaver entrepreneur | (UPI) -- The Houston Chronicle reports records show Allen Tyler of Galveston earned more than $18,000 by selling fingernails and toenails from bodies donated to the University of Texas Medical Branch for medical research.

Tyler supervised the school's Willed Body Program for more than 30 years until he was fired almost a year ago.

Records examined by the paper show between November 1999 and August 2001 Tyler received at least $18,210 from Watson Laboratories Inc. of Salt Lake City for hundreds of human fingernails and toenails -- at $15 a clip. The firm used the nails to test experimental medicines.

It is illegal under federal law to profit from the sale of human bodies. The company thought the money was going to the university.
