Is it true that unidentified bodies are all donated to universities for medical research/medical school use after all the forensic tests?

    Most go to potters field where they are buried. Some go for doctors universities and some go to places like the body farm for forensic studies of crime scenes.

    Unlikely. For a body to be donated for research or education, the person must give signed consent first, and it's quite a process to get it all approved. So an unidentified body probably would not.

    In the past, though, when the same requirements did not exist, it wouldn't surprise me if this sort of thing happened.

    Yes. It's also true that Planned Parenthood sells body parts from aborted fetuses.
