In old England, doctors would be brought human bodies for experimentation by grave robbers. Body snatchers brought fear to the dead and the living all across England. At that time only four bodies per year could be supplied to surgeons for their studies. There was a constant demand for upcoming surgeons so they would resort to body snatchers to supply this need. One such case was Burke and Hare who instead of robbing graves committed violent murder to supply their doctor. A tale that means well but the deeds are still dirty.
