Donald Greene Sr. from IL and his son Donald Greene II have been charged in a probe over diseased body parts sold for research and education.

The Associated Press reports Donald Greene Sr. has been charged with wire fraud and his son, Donald Greene II, has been charged with knowing about the scheme but failing to report it.

Federal prosecutors say researchers paid to use cadavers without knowing they had tested positive for infectious diseases.

He's now in federal prison, and evidence collected in his case led the fed to the Chicago area, to Donald Greene Sr. and Donald Green Jr. The Greenes were involved in this scheme from 2008 to 2014.

It's a story of precious cargo and broken promises that donated bodies would go to medical research.

The feds honed in on a key link to notorious Detroit body broker Arthur Rathburn.

Donald Greene Sr. and Donald Greene, Jr., who were behind the now-shuttered Biological Resource Center of IL, allegedly sold parts - with full knowledge that they were unhealthy - without telling their buyers, according to local station WBBM. They were sold for $5,000.

One mother was told her son's tissues would be donated to college research centers, according to a search warrant cited by the news outlet.

The outlet reported that people donated the bodies of their loved ones to the Biological Resource Center of IL with the promise that they would be donated for medical research.

Some were sold for up to $100,000. Selling, buying, and leasing body parts is not illegal-but it is illegal to sell infected body parts without informing the buyer.

Prosecutors, for instance, alleged that in 2013, Greene Sr. sold remains that tested positive for hepatitis to Detroit Medical Center.

Donald Greene Sr. and Donald Greene II allegedly sold body parts that had tested positive for infectious diseases, including hepatitis, or had not been tested at all, and concealed that information from their customers, according to the office of the U.S. Attorney of the Eastern District of MI.

While Greene Jr. faces a felony for intentionally concealing a crime.
