The nightmare may soon come to an end if U.S. District Judge S.
Arthur Spiegel approves the settlement reached by Hamilton County
Ohio and the families of 532 people whose dead bodies were
allegedly misused by Condon for his so-called "Cycle of Life"
Condon photographed bodies at the Hamilton County morgue for
his so-called "Cycle of Life" artistic photo project, saying he
believed he had permission to do so. But county officials,
including former County Coroner Dr. Carl L. Parrott, contended
that Condon never received permission for that specific project
and he was there only to do a training video. The training video
was scrapped, but Condon still was allowed access to the facility.
Condon was caught after employees at Robin Imaging Services called
police after developing what they thought were suspicious
Family members will also talk with Owens - who beat Parrott with
52.8 percent of the vote in the November 2004 election - about
making changes in the way his office does business. Among changes
the families are seeking: reopening the morgue viewing room,
securing grief counseling for family members who come to the
morgue, establishing an advisory panel and a memorial to the
photographed corpses at the morgue's offices to remind staff of
the dignity with which they should treat bodies in their care.
