  1. UT Explains 100 Missing Brains

Preserved in jars of formaldehyde, the organs were taken from autopsies of mentally ill patients. It was rumored and later debunked that the Austin clock-tower sniper was among them. UT officials finally said the missing parts ended up as biological waste. But skeptics wonder if that explanation is merely a head fake.
