PROSECUTORS INVESTIGATE THE CASE OF A BUSINESS THAT'S STEALING AND SELLING HUMAN BODY PARTS, ON CBS NEWS' "BROOKLYN DA," ON A NEW NIGHT AND TIME, SATURDAY, JUNE 22

A team of prosecutors investigate claims of a man pretending to be his dead mother, another team breaks up an illegal bones and body tissue harvesting business, and Rackets Chief MikeVecchione takes on his critics over allegations of misconduct, on the next BROOKLYN DA to be broadcast Saturday, June 22 (9:00 - 10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

BROOKLYN DA is a six-part news documentary series focusing on an eclectic group of men and women in the Kings County District Attorney's Office and their lives inside and outside of the courtroom.

In the fourth broadcast, prosecutors Patricia McNeill and Josh Hanshaft, who are so close they refer to each other as work spouses, detail their investigation into an illegal bone and body tissue harvesting business. One of the victims was legendary broadcaster Alistair Cooke. The case began in a Brooklyn funeral home where an oral surgeon took bones and tissue samples from corpses without permission and sold them to unsuspecting medical labs. The scam - which netted the doctor and his team millions of dollars - and eventually involved multiple funeral homes in 16 cities across the country.

Prosecutors Joe Alexis and Richard Farrell take on the strange case of a man who impersonated his dead mother to avoid losing a multi-million dollar home and access to his mother's income. Meanwhile, Rackets Chief Mike Vecchione talks about the high-profile cases he's prosecuted and also, for the first time, answers allegations of misconduct.

BROOKLYN DA was created by Patti Aronofsky, who is also the senior supervising producer. Ruth Chenetz, Liza Finley, Kim Kennedy and Elena DiFiore are the producers. Lauren Clark is the field producer. David Franklin, Michael Vele and George Baluzy are the producer-editors. Mead Stone is the senior creative producer. Anthony Batson is the senior broadcast producer. Susan Zirinsky is the senior executive producer.
