KIRKWOOD, Mo. - _ A man has apparently promised authorities he'll stop storing and brokering human body parts out of his home.

Richard Leutheuser, a designer and builder of swimming pools who dabbles in providing donated body parts for science, says he's working with this St. Louis suburb to find a location where zoning allows his sidelight business.

Leutheuser's business surfaced last month when FedEx workers opened leaking packages bound for his home and found an arm and two legs, each limb wrapped and placed in dry ice.

Leutheuser said he was a middleman for a California-based company, and investigators said he did nothing wrong, aside from having an unlicensed home business. City zoning rules also bar the storage of business inventory in a residential area, whether "they're body parts or whatever," said Dan Niebaum, Kirkwood city planner.

Leutheuser has told the city he would move that business to a site commercially zoned, Niebaum said.

Hey if he can make a buck, what the heck. Seems like it would be a nasty business.

Aimless 12/12/2003 4:06:44 PM I'll pass on donating my body, thanks. --- But please don't discourage others from doing so. We (medical students and physicians) are so very grateful for those who have provided their bodies to serve science and further our eduction. At least in the Gross Anatomy course, the bodies are treated with the utmost respect. Horseplay will net you instant expulsion from med school, no question. -jsb.
