Truro Daily News - - LIFESTYLES -

EAST STROUDS­BURG, Pa. – A Pennsylvan­ia funeral direc­tor has been charged with abus­ing corpses and other crimes for al­legedly tak­ing cell­phone pic­tures of the dead to “gross out” her friends and fam­ily. Twenty-seven-year-old An­geliegha Ste­wart also faces a mar­i­juana charge, af­ter Mon­roe County de­tec­tives found con­ver­sa­tions about deals when they searched her phone last month amid their in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the photos. Au­thor­i­ties say Ste­wart took pic­tures of one corpse dur­ing an or­gan-har­vest­ing process and oth­ers of a de­com­pos­ing corpse. Some of the corpses were in cas­kets; some were not.
