Famous model and tabloid queen Ashley Jones finds her teenage son dead in her hospital room. The cause of death confirmed a brain tumor developed by ovarian cancer present in a bone replacement for his legs. The donor of the bone who carried the cancer died in a car crash. While her remains were to go to a funeral home for cremation, her body parts instead were sold to a clinic for money. A.D.A.'s Jack McCoy and Connie Rubirosa want to prosecute the doctor who harvested the bad tissue. Yet, his defense of being a public servant to those who could not afford operations proves hard to refute. Written by Anonymous

He had a greater chance of getting struck by lightning or even dying in a plane crash, than developing ovarian cancer
28 January 2018 | by CeccacciPaolo1977See all my reviews

A nineteen years old junkie guy died at the hospital in what seemed to be a pulmonary edema. Detectives thought at first the target was his mother. There was a will of 46 million dollars, a lot of people could be involved in the murder: Green and Cassady had to deal with people who talked only with the attorneys' help, the classic rich folks. Anyway, medical examiner figured out he died as consequences of a brain cancer that he contracted as a result of a leg surgery, that caused him ovarian cancer at first. The bones belonged to a dead girl who had that cancer whose body was cremated, that means that someone (the undertaker) must have sold stolen body parts before the cremation. Another guy who received bone tissues agreed to testify to help McCoy at trial, in order to convict the doctor (Ben Bass) who performed the surgeries.

I don't know exactly how healthcare works in United States; I don't have any knowledges about medicine as well. Anyway I'm not agree healthcare should be a private matter. The poor black guy couldn't afford that kind of surgery because he had no insurance....
