And: How a Female Private Eye Agency is Exposing Infidelity All Over Atlanta

Where do our loved ones go after they die? Perhaps it is a philosophical question for most, but in Brooklyn, NY, there are disturbing, literal answers discovered when investigators exhume a body six feet under in connection with an 18-month investigation. This week, �Primetime� investigates the free-wheeling market for human body parts across the country. Chris Cuomo reports on the concerning side of a multi-million dollar industry on �Primetime,� THURSDAY, MARCH 9 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.

Supplying new tissue for a transplant is a vital, fast-growing and lucrative part of modern medicine -- but what kind of person could orchestrate taking tissue from the deceased without consent from their families? Cuomo sits down with Michael Mastromarino, the man authorities say was the mastermind in the New York area crimes, for his side of what -- and how -- this happened. Investigators say Mastromarino�s fraud didn�t end with faking signatures. In addition, prosecutors also say that he faked the medical information on the tissue provided to companies, potentially putting tens of thousands of body tissue recipients at risk. Mastromarino says he thought that consents had been obtained and that any problems were due to incorrect information provided to him. But is this an isolated case? �Primetime� reveals the many surprising facets of tissue harvesting going on across the country.

Also: 17-year-old Genarlow Wilson was an all-conference football player, honor student and homecoming king, but on one New Year�s Eve he participates in a party that will change his life forever. Wilson was charged with aggravated sexual molestation after engaging in a sex act with a 15-year-old girl � all caught on tape. Despite the fact that the girl willingly participated, under Georgia law, she could not legally consent. Wilson was convicted and sentenced to a mandatory 10 year prison sentence. Supporters of Wilson say the law was never meant to cover sexual acts between teens. �Primetime� reports on the outrage that has both sides of the law up in arms -- with a young man�s life caught in the middle.

And: Sex, lies and videotape ��Primetime� cameras ride shotgun with a new breed of female private eyes who make their living catching the cheating men and women of Atlanta. Jay Schadler reports how these ladies get the proof they need and live up to their agency�s name, �Busted.�

DIANE SAWYER, CHRIS CUOMO, CYNTHIA McFADDEN and JOHN QUI�ONES are the anchors of "PRIMETIME." DAVID SLOAN is the executive producer.
