Pennsylvania Man Buys Body Parts on Facebook


On Thursday, police arrested a Pennsylvania man, Jeremy Pauley for 3 charges in a very bizarre case. The man was involved in black market exchanges dealing in human body parts.

Jeremy Pauly describes himself as a “collector of oddities.” Once the police found out about some of them, he would find himself a nice new home behind bars.

“This is one of the most bizarre investigations I have encountered in my 33 years as a prosecutor. Just when I think I have seen it all, a case like this comes around,”

That’s what District Attorney Seán M. McCormack said about this gut-wrenching case. On June 14th, East Pennsboro Township police received a striking complaint about the possible online sale of human body parts.

A caller reported finding possible human remains inside of several buckets in the basement of Pauley’s former home. The caller reached out to police on or around July 8th.

Police conducted forensic analysis and confirmed that the remains were, indeed human body parts. Among these were brains, a heart, kidney, spleen, livers, lungs and skin.

And where in the world did Pauly purchase this hellish merchandise? Investigators say it was Facebook Messenger.

Other messages the police obtained indicate that Pauley attempted to purchase more human remains from an Arkansas woman name Candice Scott. The district attorney’s office intercepted their U.S. Postal Service packages in Scranton. The woman from Arkansas tried to ship human remains to a patron through the U.S. Postal Service.

So where was this lady getting her maniacal merchandise? Ultimately, the University of Arkansas. According to investigators, the University of Arkansas. The University of Arkansas Medical Services believe that one of their mortuary employees stole the body parts to sell them online. One of their representatives said the following:

“An employee of the mortuary service is under investigation by federal authorities for taking some human remains from the mortuary that were donated to UAMS. We are saddened and appalled that this happened.”

Even weirder still, Pauley wasn’t the final destination. Supposedly, he intended to sell the body parts himself in order to make a profit.
