    Sperm switch: man swaps baby batter at clinic, daughter learns father is not hers

    1 194 流覽量
    A Utah family has learned that a convicted criminal who worked in a fertility clinic they visited in the early 1990s fathered their daughter, after the now 21-year-old took a home DNA test.

    The couple discovered that their daughter's biological father was Thomas Lippert, a former convict then a staff member at the clinic. Lippert swapped out the man's sperm for some of his own, a fact first flagged by the home DNA results, then confirmed by a paternity test using saliva samples from Lippert's 99-year-old mother. Lippert, an only child, died in 1999.

    The couple have no legal recourse as the clinic, Reproductive Medical Technologies, Inc., which was associated with the University of Utah, is now closed.

    It is not known if Lippert replaced other men's sperm with his own, but it is know that he kept a collection of photographs of children conceived with the help of the clinic on his desk. The couple said they remembered Lippert, and his photos.

    In 1975, Lippert was a law professor at Southwest State College in Marshall, Minnesota. Looking for a subject on which to perform his own love experiments, he contacted 21-year-old Susan Cochran, a student who posted a 'ride wanted' card on a bulletin board. Lippert offered her a ride to Boston, but instead, kidnapped Cochran. He made her strip then forced her to drink Southern Comfort until she blacked out. He performed strange experiments on her in a mysterious black box, hoping he could force her to fall in love with him. She didn't and Lippert went to jail.
