Organ Grinders


Robert Mihaly's legal troubles had just started when he was sentenced to prison for theft. During a routine physical examination, Romanian prison authorities discovered he was missing a kidney. He told them he'd had it removed because of medical problems. But they couldn't find any hospital records to back up the claim. Instead, police claim he sold the kidney in 2001 to a woman who has since left the country. He has now been charged with illegal trading in organs.
