The Case of Richard Boorman's Missing Organs [Rebroadcast]

Richard Boorman died after reportedly using cocaine during a Las Vegas bachelor party.  But when his body was repatriated back to England, his family got an even bigger shock: all his organs were missing.  Now, almost seven years later, the family still has no answers.  The coroner's office says it doesn't know what happened, and the man at the funeral home who embalmed Boorman has mysteriously disappeared.  So what happened to Richard Boorman's organs?  Were they misplaced or stolen?  And how will his family find answers?  Originally aired 4/2/12.
