'I did not sell donor eyes for profit.' Indicted coroner backed up by Kentucky Lions Eye Bank

Scott County Coroner John Goble disputes a grand jury allegation he stole donor eyes and delivered them for personal profit. “I did not sell donor eyes for profit,” Goble said. The Kentucky Lions Eye Bank seemed to support Goble’s claims releasing a statement that time was critical for surgery and other means of delivering the organs were not available. The eye bank used Goble for the organ delivery from Lexington to West Virginia and the transplant was successful, the release stated.
