PHILADELPHIA, PA – A family in Pennsylvania is suing the Department of Defense and U.S. Navy.

They say weeks after their marine son’s funeral, they discovered that his body was missing its heart. Craig and Beverly LaLoup say they were told that their 21-year-old son Brian shot himself while working a security detail in Greece. They found out about the missing heart after the burial, when a military official apparently let it slip.

The late soldier’s parents are now reportedly seeking at least $75,000 in emotional damages, claiming that the government mishandled a number of matters surrounding the death. The LaLoups even say a DNA test confirms that a heart sent to them later, is not their son’s.

For now the Department of Defense says is not commenting.
