Joshua Lee Long, of central Pennsylvania, has been charged with conspiracy and the abuse of a corpse.
It’s surprising however that Long, 26, isn’t dead himself.
Long kept a human brain, which he fondly knew as Freddie, preserved in the highly toxic substance formaldehyde.
He had a penchant for spraying the formaldehyde on his marijuana, which he then smoked avidly.
This contented relationship between brain, drugs and man might well have continued but for Long’s aunt being houseproud.
While cleaning out a trailer she discovered the brain in a bag.
Naturally she rang the police – and landed her nephew in jail.
