  • A New Hampshire family is devastated after learning that their father's remains were stolen and sold online. The family is angry and hurt, not understanding how someone could do something like this. The former manager of the morgue at Harvard Medical School is now facing federal charges for this crime. Prosecutors allege that he took body parts and made tens of thousands of dollars by selling them online.
    This grotesque crime has shocked many families, and the New Hampshire family is now coming to terms with the fact that their father's remains were likely sold on the black market. The family can't believe it and finds it disgusting to think about what body parts might have been sold. They trusted that by donating their father's body to Harvard, it would be used for education and research, and they assumed it was safe.
    The family is not alone in their shock and disgust. This crime has made headlines around the world and has caught the attention of many. People are appalled by the manager's actions and the violation of trust. It is a reminder that even institutions like Harvard are not immune to crimes of this nature.
    The family is still trying to process the news and is grappling with their emotions. They describe their father as a giving man in life, and it hurts them to think that even in death, his body was exploited for profit. The thought of their father's remains being sold online is sickening to them, and it makes them want to throw up.
    As this story continues to unfold, it serves as a stark reminder of the lengths some people will go to for money. It also highlights the need for stricter regulations and oversight in places where human remains are handled. Families should not have to worry about the possibility of their loved ones' bodies being stolen and sold.
    Authorities are working to unravel this crime ring and hold those responsible accountable. The New Hampshire family, along with many others, hopes that justice will be served and that this horrific incident will lead to changes that prevent such acts from happening in the future.
    In the meantime, the family is left to grieve and come to terms with the fact that their father's remains were treated with such disrespect. They trusted that Harvard would honor their father's donation, and now they must confront the reality that his body was part of a lucrative illegal trade. It is a painful and heartbreaking situation that they never expected to face.
    As this story continues to develop, more details will come to light. It is a sobering reminder of the dark side of human nature, and it serves as a call to action for society to ensure that the dignity and respect of the deceased are always upheld.

  • Very angry.
  • It hurt.
  • I just don't see enough people could do something like this.
  • Tonight a New Hampshire family devastated after learning just hours ago that their dad's remains were stolen and sold online.
  • Any statement to the families at all?
  • It was their love.
  • And it is this man who's facing federal charges.
  • Prosecutors say the former manager of the morgue at Harvard Medical School took body parts and made tens of thousands of dollars online.
  • It is a grotesque crime that has many families in absolute shock tonight.
  • Thank you for joining us.
  • I'm David Wade.
  • We have team coverage on this story that's making headlines all across the world.
  • We'll have more in a moment on how this crime ring worked.
  • But we begin with WBZ's Kendra Cloud who spoke with the family that learned tonight that their dad's remains were likely sold.
  • That's correct.
  • This is information supplied by the federal authority.
  • A phone call with Harvard brought this family devastating news tonight.
  • Pieces of Nick Pickowitz were likely sold on the black market.
  • Can't believe that.
  • Like what?
  • Eyes?
  • I mean skin?
  • I mean it's just like disgusting.
  • I don't even know.
  • I don't want to know.
  • Always a giving man in life, Pickowitz wanted to do the same in death.
  • So the 87-year-old donated his body to the Harvard Medical School for education and research in 2019.
  • I mean you put them on the higher pedestal and you know you think Harvard you know you think you're safe.
  • But now the family believes Pickowitz was the victim of a sickening scheme where federal prosecutors say the manager of Harvard's morgue stole and sold body parts to make some extra cash.
  • I literally wanted to throw up.
  • What makes this even harder on the family is that they donated their mom's body to Harvard back in March of this year after the feds believe they shut down the bizarre operation.
  • Still the family wants her remains back now.
  • I just feel bad for everybody that's victimized with this.
  • It's just not right.
  • A statement from Harvard admits the case is morally reprehensible and says the school was appalled to learn that something so disturbing could happen on our campus.
  • But this family says Harvard still has a ton of explaining to do for the betrayal of their parents.
  • They trusted them to do good science work with their bodies and then you hear this.
  • As for the culprits in this dark scheme they're looking for more than a slap on the wrist.
  • I mean those people need to be punished.
  • They need to be punished.
  • It's just sick.
  • Can't even imagine.
  • Both daughters have ashes of their dad sent back to them after his body supposedly served its medical purpose.
  • But with trust in short supply they now wonder if it's even him.
  • I feel sick to my stomach.
