Man Removed Pacemaker While On the Lam From the Law

"A man who apparently tried to fake his own death had his pacemaker cut out of his chest in a South Carolina motel room shortly after staging his disappearance in January."

"Jasper County deputies said he staged his disappearance in January, then had his pacemaker delivered to his wife, along with a piece of skin and a letter claiming he'd been murdered by religious zealots."

Now "Steven Lukowich, 35, of Ridgeland is recovering from an infection in an Erie, Pa., jail where he faces charges of unlawful flight to avoid prosecution," according to this. (Thanks to The Obscure Store for both this link and the next about GM.)
