Man Arrested For Selling Stolen Brains on eBay


The zombie apocalypse hasn't even hit yet, and already beople are trying to appease their zombie overlords. David Charles, a 21-year-old Dairy Queen employee in Indiana, was arrested for stealing brains and other human tissue, and selling them on eBay. 

Apparently Charles stole around 60 human brains from the Indiana Medical History Museum. The brains were all from the latter part of the 19th century, removed during autopsies of mental patients. What baffles me even more is the fact that he then put the brains for sale on eBay. I can get banned for listing an item in the wrong category, but this guy can sell human tissue? It illegal to buy and sell human remains in this country; I'm not sure how eBay let it get so far. 

The buyer who purchased the brain was the person who alerted police. 



I'm not really sure what Charles was hoping to accomplish. Surely there are better ways to make a few bucks than to resell human remains,
