ABQ Business Owner Arrested in Body Parts Case
By Sue Major Holmes
Albuquerque police have arrested the owner of a business that has been linked to the discovery of six heads and numerous other human body parts in a truck at a Kansas medical waste facility.
The Bernalillo County Metropolitan Detention Center says Bio Care Southwest owner Paul Montano was arrested on three counts of fraud. He was being held on $100,000 bond.
The arrest came after investigators spoke with Montano on Wednesday.
Sealed plastic bags containing the heads and body parts were found last week in 12 tubs inside a delivery truck at a Stericycle Inc. facility in Kansas City, Kan.
Kansas authorities say Stericycle disposes of waste such as operating room debris or syringes but doesn't incinerate major body parts.
