Manager of Harvard Medical School's morgue accused of selling body parts on the black market


The federal complaint depicts a busy black market in human remains


The body part-stealing scheme stretched from 2018 to early 2023

It happened at UCLA's morgue about 20 years ago, but those parts were being used for medical research (and ended up being featured in a Michael Crichton novel if I recall correctly). Sounds like the Harvard body parts were being sold as macabre art curios.
