A Pennsylvania man was arrested this past Thursday after he stole a human brain and spritzed his weed with the embalming fluid surrounding it to get high. He purportedly named this brain Freddy.
26-year-old Joshua Lee Longâ€™s aunt contacted authorities on June 21st after finding a human brain in a department store bag under a porch while cleaning out a trailer.
He purportedly told that aunt, during a phone call from jail, that heâ€™d used the formaldehyde-soaked marijuana to get high.
“The defendant related that he knew it was illegal to have the brain and that he and (another man) would spray the embalming fluid on weed to get high,” the investigator, Trooper John Boardman, wrote.
A coroner determined that the brain was indeed real.
Authorities believe it was probably stolen from a classroom or lab where it was being used as a teaching specimen.
Long has been charged with abuse of a corpse and conspiracy, and remains in jail.
