Title:πŸ’€πŸ’°”A Morbid Market: Former Morgue Manager and Accomplices Face Federal Charges Over Unholy Harvest”πŸ’°πŸ’€

TL;DR: Who knew body snatching wasn’t just for Victorian-era grave robbers? In a chilling 21st-century version of this tale, Cedric Lodge, a former Harvard morgue manager, stands accused of swiping and selling body parts, taken from donated cadavers. As macabre as this already sounds, the story only gets darker, with not only Lodge’s wife, but also two other individuals being implicated. So we ask, does this ghoulish tale speak to a larger, unchecked issue in the medical sector? πŸ’€πŸ’ΌπŸ’΅

In what could be a plot ripped straight from a grisly horror movie, Cedric Lodge, 55, and his wife, Denise, 63, are among those facing federal charges for their involvement in a black-market trade of human remains. Working from within the Harvard Medical School’s morgue, Lodge allegedly stole parts of donated cadavers, including but not limited to heads, brains, skin, and bones. They were then transported to his home in New Hampshire. 😱🏑

But wait, it doesn’t stop there! The indictment claims that the Lodges conspired with two other accomplices, Katrina Maclean, 44, owner of Kat’s Creepy Creations, and Joshua Taylor, 46. Maclean’s store, located in Peabody, Massachusetts, allegedly served as the front for selling these ill-gotten goods. As for Taylor, well, he has allegedly paid over $37
