Boy's Parents Sue After Dead Son's Brain Put on Display without Their Permission

A jury has awarded a settlement of over one million dollars to a New York City family after finding out that the morgue put their son's brain on display without their permission.  Jesse Jerome Shipley was 17 years old when he died in a car crash.  The parents had no idea that their son's brain was being put out for the public to see after his death.

A mere coincidence led to the discovery, as one of the classmates of Jesse's 14-year old sister saw the brain during a class field trip to the mortuary.  The brain had his name on it, which led to the identification.  Jesse's sister had been in the car crash that killed her brother, and went home to tell her parents.

The parents held a second burial for their son's brain.
