CARLISLE, Penn.– Joshua Lee Long, a central Pennsylvania resident, was arrested for stealing a human brain and spraying the fluid used to preserve it on marijuana.
The 26-year-old was charged with abuse of a corpse and conspiracy.
According to Fox59, court records say that the man’s aunt found the brain in a department store bag while cleaning out a trailer.
She alleges Long revealed to her during a phone conversation from the Cumberland County jail that he used the formaldehyde-soaked pot to get high.
A coroner determined the brain was real.
The arrest affidavit says the coroners who examined the brain suspect it is “most likely” a stolen medical specimen.
