HR Strange But True!
October 25, 2001

Four city morgue workers in Philadelphia have been convicted of participating in a theft ring that stole more than $90,000 from the dead.

Employees in the Medical Examiner's Office were accused of swiping credit cards, cash, guns and identification from bodies and using the credit cards to buy televisions, computers and other merchandise.

The defendants face anywhere from 18 months to four years in prison. Sentencing was set for Jan. 24-25. Six other morgue workers and six people who did not work for the medical examiner pleaded guilty in the scheme. One wore a hidden microphone to help police gather evidence.
