Harvard Medical School's morgue manager apparently sold human remains that ended up with this lizard person

Seven people have been charged with stealing and selling human remains, including the manager of Harvard University's morgue.

One of the dudes he sold to looks like this:

This guy and seven of his buddies allegedly stole bodies from the medical schools at Harvard and the University of Arkansas and sold them for personal profit in an underground black market.

The arrests involved an underground network that robbed corpses — including the bodies of two stillborn infants — at Harvard Medical School's Anatomical Gifts Program and an Arkansas mortuary and crematorium, US Attorney Gerard M. Karam said in a statement Wednesday.

Cedric Lodge, 55, allegedly stole the remains from the university morgue, where he worked, and sold the body parts online with the help of his wife, Denise, 63, to associates Katrina Maclean, 44, Joshua Taylor, 46, and Matthew Lampi, 52.

The man pictured in the headline was one of Lampi's clients who exchanged more than $100,000 to purchase the stolen human carcasses.

Among the body parts sold included two desiccated faces MacLean paid Lodge $600 for, and in 2020, Taylor allegedly sent Denise $200 with a memo that read, "braiiiiiins."

These people are totally disgusting. Concerned humans are willing to leave their bodies to science, donate them to the prestigious Harvard Medical School, only for the people in charge to hack them up and sell their body parts to the highest bidder. Totally sick.

Prosecutors also claimed Lodge allowed his buyers to enter the Boston morgue to pick out what body parts they wanted, with the rogue manager then stealing the remains and shipping them through the mail.

Lodge was fired on May 6, with Harvard describing his alleged actions as "an abhorrent betrayal."

It's beyond disgusting, but who could be surprised that this dude would be involved in something like that?
