VacTruth has a fascinating article on the recent "malfunction" at McLean Hospital’s Harvard Brain Tissue Resource Center (HBTRC), where 54 frozen donated, post-mortem brains from autistic children and young adults ended up thawing and decaying.

 

The director of HBTRC is quoted as saying that foul play cannot be ruled out, as this was such an unusual and perfect storm of mishaps.

How likely is it that the "perfect storm" happened with all the safeguards to fail at once?

 

Why are they doing an internal investigation first, instead of contacting the police? Evidence could be destroyed.

Haven't read the article (and would love a source besides vactruth.com), but I can speak a little to the internal investigation thing, to wit: what expertise do you think the cops in, where the heck is McLean anyway, Belmont?, have to bring to this investigation?

Internal investigations are standard practice when serious malfunctions or other problems occur in scientific research facilities. Harvard is huge, and has infrastructure that many people don't suspect, including a police department of their own, systems engineers who handle their lab equipment and security systems, and a mind-boggling array of forensic expertise. Their internal investigation will be far more able than anything anyone short of the FBI could bring in. And the FBI probably lacks jurisdiction here. Further, investigating internally, and bringing in municipal police, the DA, etc. Keeps the cost burden off of the community, which is a pretty big deal since Harvard doesn't pay income or real estate taxes (per the MA state constitution), and every land deal they've been involved in in the last 20 years (probably longer) has included legal wrangling of how the towns and cities of MA are going to be compensated for the reduction in their tax rolls.

Why is this in the vax forum?

 

"The freezer contained about 150 brain samples from people who had died with a neurological condition such as autism, Parkinson’s disease, or Alzheimer’s disease, or a psychiatric one like bipolar disorder or schizophrenia."

Because the article was from vactruth.org, a website started by a parent who believes that vaccines caused his son's autism. An increasing number of people believe that the pharmaceutical industry is covering up data that supports a vaccine/autism link; if in fact, there was some sort of foul play here, Autism Speaks, which owned the collection, and which has extensive pharmaceutical ties, would be in a position of suspicion.

I haven't read the other article yet but that is just inconceivable about the thaw.....what a precious waste.

Here's the Reuters article: http://www.cnbc.com/id/47770942

Ah yes Autism Speaks; who could possibly question their shoving a sock in our collective autistic mouths.

 

When an event has a very low probability of honestly happening; the ODDS are it did not happen honestly. This is just simple probability.

 

Well what can we do? I guess its back to HOPING for the CURE.
