Chapter 255: Interlude: The Hole in the Bottom of the Sea

There’s only so much use you can get out of a single corpse. You only need a few ounces of tissue to extract DNA. The real value of a body (after you’ve experimented it to death) is in autopsy. Once you’ve excised the useful bits, a body is just a hundred pounds of waste.

Disposing of a body is surprisingly difficult. When you have a parade of bodies coming in each month, getting rid of the Jones cadavers is pretty much a full time job. Sometimes, they use chemicals. Sometimes, fire. But mostly, the bodies are dumped into the sea.
