Cedric Lodge, who is the director of Harvard Medical School’s morgue, has been indicted for allegedly trafficking human organs .
CONCORD, N.H. — The former manager of the morgue at Harvard Medical School was arrested Wednesday on federal charges that he, his wife, and others engaged in a sprawling conspiracy to steal and sell human body parts that had been donated to the school for research and education.
A federal grand jury indictment alleges Cedric Lodge, 55, spent years diverting organs and cadaver parts that had been donated to the medical school’s Anatomical Gift Program and were supposed to be cremated, sometimes taking the remains to his home in Goffstown, N.H., before selling them to people in other states.

The FBI’s Boston office said special agents arrested the Lodges and a co-defendant, 44-year-old Katrina Maclean of Salem, Mass., without incident Wednesday. Three other defendants face charges in Pennsylvania, and one was previously indicted in Arkansas, authorities said.
“Some crimes defy understanding,” Gerard M. Karam, US attorney for the Middle District of Pennsylvania, said in a statement. “The theft and trafficking of human remains strikes at the very essence of what makes us human.”
“It is particularly egregious that so many of the victims here volunteered to allow their remains to be used to educate medical professionals and advance the interests of science and healing,” Karam said. “For them and their families to be taken advantage of in the name of profit is appalling.”
Maclean, who owns Kat’s Creepy Creations in Peabody, Mass., is charged with trafficking in stolen human remains, among other counts, according to the indictment. The Instagram account for Kat’s says it sells “Creations that shock the mind & shake the soul,” including “Creepy dolls, Oddities, Bone Art.” A post from December 2019 describes a display that included “real human vertebrae.”
In a joint e-mail statement, the dean of the Faculty of Medicine at Harvard University and the dean for Medical Education at Harvard Medical School called the situation a case of “abhorrent” betrayal.
Do you think that someone is really stupid to believe that?
Harvard High ranks know well that pity of crimes are on going from decades inside those walls…and power covers them all.
Here you may read the official legal stuff.
Nonetheless, Harvard people are not those genius minds who you think of…. they’re a bunch of cheeky, disgusting hollow gourds…that’s who they are.
You don’t think so? Look yourself then
They perpetrated serious crimes and also admitted them via paypal...
