Pennsylvania ‘oddities collector’ in Harvard stolen body parts scandal gets probation

A Pennsylvania “oddities collector” has been spared jail time after admitting to buying human remains stolen from Harvard Medical School and another mortuary in Arkansas and selling them on Facebook.

Jeremy Pauley of Thompson, 42, will serve two years of probation on charges of abusing a corpse, Fox 43 reported.

After he pleaded guilty to that charge on Jan. 8, prosecutors dropped additional charges against him, including one count of dealing in proceeds of unlawful activities and two counts of receiving stolen property, WGAL reported.

Pauley pleaded guilty to federal charges of conspiracy and interstate transportation of stolen property in September 2023, the U.S. Attorney’s Office of the Middle District of Pennsylvania wrote in a press release.

In doing so, the office said, Pauley “admitted to his role in a nationwide network of individuals who bought and sold human remains.”

Pauley bought body parts from cadavers that were donated for medical research before their scheduled cremations, allegedly from Cedric Lodge, the former manager of Harvard’s Medical School Morgue, the U.S. Attorney’s Office wrote.

The manager allegedly let his customers come into the morgue and pick out parts they wanted, the office wrote.
