A Kansas coroner is trying to identify body parts found inside a truck at a medical waste company.
Seven heads, a torso and several limbs were found last week in a truck at Stericycle Co.
Kansas City, Kan.-based Stericycle handles medical waste such as operating room debris and syringes. But it generally doesn't dispose of major body parts. A Stericycle spokeswoman said Tuesday that the company won't comment.
Wyandotte County Coroner Alan Hancock says the parts were found in a shipment from New Mexico company Bio Care. That company says it didn't ship the parts found in the truck. Bio Care's Web site says it's a nonprofit that handles donations of human bodies to science.
The company also provides cremation services at no cost.
