Storyline

Joseph Paul Jernigan broke into a house and then beat, stabbed, and shot a man to death. He was convicted of murder and sentenced to die by lethal injection. Jernigan decided to donate his body to science. After his execution, his body was used as part of the Visible Human Project. His body was frozen and then ground into sections which were then digitally imaged to provide a three-dimensional view of the human body. Written by Anonymous

A very interesting look at the dichotomy of the privileged scientists who want the body of a death row inmate, and the lack of justice provided to a poor white murderer. The lead doctor provides comic relief to this gripping documentary about the abuse of power -- religious, ethical, and judicial.
