A man who lived in the same townhome as a missing Joppa man now feared dead was arrested and charged with first-degree murder Wednesday, after parts of a dismembered human body were found inside the home and in a dumpster nearby, according to the Harford County Sheriff's Office. The arrest of Alexander Kinyua, 21, came almost a week after Kujoe Bonsafo Agyei-Kodie, 37, first went missing Friday, and followed a search of the home the two men shared in the 500 block of Terrapin Terrace in Joppatowne early Wednesday morning, police said.

Mutter Museum may leave you shocked and horrified or amazed and fascinated. Either way, its collections of bones, bodies, body parts, plus tumors and other terrors, are unforgettable. The nation's finest and oldest medical museum - celebrating its 150th anniversary this month - bills itself as "disturbingly informative," and that is absolutely true. Specimens lining its wood-and-glass display cases reveal the effects of epidemics and diseases on the body, as well as an amazing array of human curiosities and anomalies.

IT'S A THIGH THING. As soon as our daughters notice they have laps, they notice their thighs. And they gasp in dismay. "Oh, God. My thighs are, like, huge!" "I can't believe how flabby my thighs are. They even jiggle!" "My thighs are the worst. Thunder thighs." This tedious conversation from the back seat is familiar to any mother who chauffeurs girls around. It is a wonder these self-conscious girls don't insist on standing during the ride. And, as any mother knows, this body talk is not designed to fill an awkward silence.

I remember back in the day when conversations about sex were whispered and babies were born by immaculate conception. All three of my children were. Just ask my mother. But actually I was a lucky ducky, and when I asked her where babies came from, she didn't give me the hooey other mothers in the neighborhood gave their kids. She sat me down and drew a diagram of a male organ, female uterus and birth canal. I was 7. I just wanted to know if what Sylvia, who was 8, had told me was true.

Yesterday marked the conclusion of National Organ and Tissue Donor Awareness week, a time when donor advocates ordinarily welcome any and all media coverage. But a huge, five-part newspaper report this past week shined an unflattering spotlight on some aspects of the donation business and has the donor community up in arms. The "Body Brokers," an Orange County Register report circulated nationally by news services, took an in-depth look into what happens to donated body parts and makes some disturbing conclusions: "Nonprofit tissue banks and research institutions do not explain to families how the [donated]

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Despite campaigns to improve public awareness of the benefits of organ donation, the sharp upswing in demand for human organs has not been accompanied by a corresponding increase in supply. While solutions of both the carrot and the stick variety have been offered to reverse the donor dearth, none has proved successful. The unmet demand for organs has fostered commercialization and, at times, exploitation of donors and their families. "Market-based" methods of organ procurement have been proposed but are little more than a euphemism for buying and selling of body parts.

Part of ''Body Parts'' is novel, even interesting. Unfortunately, the larger portion of the film, the first hour or so, is a bore. It plays exactly as you might expect it to play.The film, directed by Eric Red (''The Hitcher''), presents Jeff Fahey as a criminal psychologist who loses his arm in an automobile accident, one that is staged with surprising realism.Enter, at this point, a ''brilliant but misguided surgeon'' (that's according to the press material), who tells the shrink's wife that they are now able to transplant arms and legs, and wouldn't she like to see her husband have a new arm?

NEW YORK -- A renewed search for human remains at Ground Zero will be expanded to a service road there, several area streets and the rooftops of two nearby buildings, Mayor Michael R Bloomberg announced yesterday. Two city and state agencies looking into the recovery of remains at the World Trade Center site expressed particular concern about a 60-foot-wide service road running the length of the site from Liberty Street to Vesey Street. That road, just inside the trade center's western edge, was rebuilt in March 2002 as part of the post-Sept.

They've been seen on pregnant bellies and tattooed on foreheads. They've invaded bathroom stalls, cellular phones and doctors' offices. They've sneaked their way into movies, TV shows, novels and even Broadway plays. They are ads and, come September, they'll be more maddeningly ubiquitous than ever. In the fall, a laser-imprinted CBS eye logo and slogan will make their appearance on eggs in major markets around the country as the network launches 35 million "egg-vertisements" to generate publicity for its fall television lineup.

In the old days, when he had a real job, Josh Fruhlinger's cubicle stood closer to the copy machine than anybody else's. Whenever the contraption sputtered or jammed, as it did several times a week, co-workers stampeded to his workspace, desperation in their eyes. Just as desperate, he fended them off. "I'd say, `No, no! Just because I sit near the photocopier does not mean I know how to fix it!" said Fruhlinger, now a freelance Web editor who says he works in his pajamas. "The office mentality stirs up its own kinds of psychosis."

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip - Israeli troops were on a grim house-to-house search for their comrades' remains here last night, after Palestinian militants blew up an Israeli troop carrier, killing six soldiers, and then said they had made off with some of the body parts. At least seven Palestinians were also killed, and dozens were injured, during an Israeli raid that began overnight Monday as a mission to destroy what the army called weapons factories. Israeli forces unleashed machine-gun fire from tanks, and rockets from helicopter gunships.

"Body Parts" is as tasteful as the Jeffrey Dahmer jokes making the rounds. No wonder they won't show TV ads for this movie in Milwaukee -- it's a cinematic raw bar, the best film for barbecue lovers since "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre."The germ of this so-bad-it's-almost-good film by Eric Red (as in Eric the Red?) is as old as "Donovan's Brain." Some poor chump loses a body part and gets a transplant from another chump RTC who's lost more than a part -- who's lost, like, everything! Before ,, long, the guy with the borrowed part is behaving like the guy he got it from -- or worse yet, the dead guy wants it back.

The corporate mea culpas from CBS, MTV and Viacom Inc. took up more time than their infamous and seemingly eternal halftime show at the Super Bowl last week. That, of course, was when, for a fleeting moment, one of singer Janet Jackson's breasts was exposed. This prompted a torrent of protests ranging from official Washington to shrill talk-show hosts to viewers to, of course, an indignant National Football League, even though it has never tired of trying to make the Big Game bigger than life itself.

WASHINGTON - Partly because of security concerns after the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, technologies that identify people by their faces, fingerprints and other body parts will become a standard part of international travel and appear on passports and visas within the next few years, officials say. Travel documents will soon include computer chips and bar codes that contain body identification information. The changes are being made to meet guidelines set over the past few months by international organizations.
