Six people have been charged for selling and stealing body parts from Harvard medical school and an Arkansas morgue.
The DOJ revealed the new charges stem from “information alleging that a nationwide network of individuals bought and sold human remains stolen from Harvard Medical School and an Arkansas mortuary.”
The US Attorney’s Office of the Middle District of Pennsylvania revealed “Cedric Lodge, age 55, of Goffstown, New Hampshire, Katrina Maclean, age 44, of Salem, Massachusetts, Joshua Taylor, age 46, of West Lawn, Pennsylvania, Denise Lodge, age 63, of Goffstown, New Hampshire, and Mathew Lampi, age 52, of East Bethel, Minnesota, were indicted by a federal grand jury on conspiracy and interstate transport of stolen goods charges. Additionally, Jeremy Pauley, age 41, of Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania, was charged by Criminal Information.”
The charges alleged Cedric Lodge, who managed the Anatomical Gifts Program at Harvard Medical School, stole organs and other body parts for medical research.
Cedric and his wife Denise then allegedly sold the organs to Katrina Maclean, Joshua Taylor, and others.
Once Maclean and Taylor purchased the stolen body parts they sold the body parts to Jeremy Pauley who later sold the body parts on Facebook.
