CARLISLE, Pa. (AP) — A central Pennsylvania man was charged Thursday after police say he sprayed fluid used to embalm a human brain on marijuana that he then smoked.
State police in Carlisle charged 26-year-old Joshua Lee Long with abuse of a corpse and conspiracy.
Court records indicate Long’s aunt contacted detectives on June 21 after finding a human brain in a department store bag under a porch while cleaning out a trailer.
Long allegedly told her during a phone conversation from the Cumberland County jail that he used the formaldehyde-soaked pot 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,” wrote Trooper John Boardman, the investigator.
Court records indicate a coroner concluded the brain was real and that Long supposedly named it Freddy.
The coroners who examined the brain believe it was most likely a stolen teaching specimen, according to the arrest affidavit.
Long remains in jail, and court records did not list a lawyer for him.
