EAST PENNSBORO TOWNSHIP, Pa. (WHTM) — A preliminary hearing for Jeremy Pauley, 40, that was scheduled to begin at 9:30 Wednesday morning according to Magisterial District Judge Michael Sanderson’s office, has been postponed.

The hearing was postponed until 2023, abc27 learned around 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday.

The Cumberland County man was charged in late July with abuse of a corpse, receiving stolen property, and more. 

In June, East Pennsboro Township police got a call about an Enola man reportedly buying body parts on Facebook. 

They said they spoke with Pauley and said he had three full skeletons and more than a dozen human skulls from a “legitimate purchase.” 

Then in July, they got another call from someone who claimed they found buckets of human organs in a basement. Detectives and the coroner’s office got a search warrant and found 3 to 5 gallon buckets containing various human remains.

Police said they found Pauley was buying the $4,000 worth of remains over Facebook from a woman in Arkansas. 

The FBI and Arkansas state police got involved, accusing the woman of stealing them from a mortuary. 

Police and the FBI interviewed Pauley, who admitted to buying the remains and said he was selling them to others for profit.
