Biological Resource Center: Federal agents raid Phoenix business, take records and equipment

PHOENIX - Federal agents are continuing their investigation into a Phoenix tissue bank and body donation business.

On Tuesday, teams raided the Biological Resource Center , taking bags of evidence, business records, equipment, and even what appeared to be body parts.

Federal agents are expected to be in the Valley through the end of the week for the ongoing investigation.

Air15 video over the business, near 24th Street and University Drive, showed authorities in hazmat suits removing what appeared to be bodies from inside the facility.

Both the Attorney General's Office and FBI are investigating a possible human body parts selling network.

Just last month, agents raided a company in Detroit, removing body parts of a thousand people, all of which had been kept on ice, not embalmed.

The Attorney General's Office says it anticipates the investigation will last another couple of weeks.
