Excerpt: The charge of “body snatching” by the news media opens up the issue of where and how the Los Alamos tissue analysis program obtained samples for study. During the first twelve years of the program, from 1959 to 1971, all samples were obtained from individuals who had died and/or were given autopsies at the Los Alamos Medical Center. As described in the main text, the first case was Cecil Kelley, who had worked with plutonium and died as a result of a criticality accident. His autopsy was authorized by the Los Alamos coroner, and then the pathologist at the Los Alamos Medical Center, Dr. Clarence C. Lushbaugh, decided to collect tissue samples from Kelley and have them analyzed for plutonium content by the biomedical research group at the Laboratory (Lushbaugh had a joint appointment with that group).
