Medic sued for using chopped off foot to train dog

This sick saga goes back over two years when Florida paramedic Cindy Economou was charged with stealing a disembodied foot from the scene of a car crash and using the foot to train her cadaver sniffing dog. Economou said at the time, "It was an unrecognizable mass of flesh. It wasn't a clean cut. You couldn't even recognize it as a foot. If I had thought it was somehow reattachable and usable, I would have gone to my commander." She served served six months of probation for her crime.

Now victim Kari Lambert is striking back. Lambert is suing Economou for unspecified damages related to the foot theft. Lambert said of the crime: "Utterly intolerable in civilized society." I suppose the shoe is on the other foot now.
