A man is suing a U.S. body-donation company for giving his mother's body to the military for blast testing when he believed it would be used for medical research.

Stauffer said he learned after a 2016 Reuters investigation that her body had been used for a U.S. Army research project looking at bomb impact.
Stauffer has now joined 32 other plaintiffs suing the center, accusing it of deceiving them about what happened to their family members' bodies. The case is set to go to trial on October 21, CNN reported.
