Mortuary Technicians Get In Trouble For Playing With Bodies At Work!!!

- By Bossip Staff

BOSSIP recently learned of some pretty sickening behavior going on in several New York morgues. Photographic evidence has revealed some city morgue workers haven’t all been taking their jobs seriously — instead workers spent time goofing off, posing with dead body parts for candid shots. Pop the hood for the disgusting details.

“It was stupid,” Kaihl Brassfield, 35, told The Post. “It was just the culture there. Everyone was doing it.”

The creepy pictures, some undated and others from 2004, show Brassfield and unidentified co-workers hamming it up. “It was foolish,” he conceded. “Now I’m older. It stopped.”

Brassfield, a $35,000-a- year technician at the Brooklyn morgue of the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, had been out of work on disability, but was suspended without pay after inquiries by The Post.

He says that for several years, everyone working in the Staten Island and Brooklyn morgues, from cops to coroners, participated in the gory games.

But in recent years, after the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner took over from the Health and Hospitals Corp., staff got more professional, Brassfield said.

“We are looking into the allegations,” said Office of the Chief Medical Examiner spokeswoman Ellen Borakove. “This is the antithesis of the mission of our agency to always treat families and decedents with the utmost respect and sensitivity.”

The probe by the office’s inspector-general began after the queries were made about the photos, and the city’s Department of Investigation has begun interviewing ME employees.

Brassfield said the photos were stolen in November. He said he received calls blackmailing him in December, but refused to pay.

SMH — we’d imagine that you have to have a pretty sick sense of humor to even tolerate working in the morgue, but playing with dead body parts is about as low as you can go. Actually — we take that back. This is just sick.

    He played with a decapitated head?!?! No words! Then again, he was only getting paid $35K a year as a morgue technician. As I always say: When you pay PEANUTS, you get MONKEYS.

    LOL! I’m sure the bodies didn’t mind.

    You got to have a sense of humour in that kind of work or you would go crazy.

    No big deal in my eyes.

    LOL. Ugh! So true.

  • Mz.

    Wow! That is just crazy. Now i work in an eviroment that can get very boring at times. Phone customer service isnt always the highlight of any employees’ day. Sometimes we call eachother and speak in other accents (Brittish, Australian, Boston ect.) But that’s as far as it goes. Now as far as working in a morgue, im not sure what i would do to pass the time….probably just do my job and get the heck out of that creepy place at the end of the day!!

  • latashia

    sick assses

  • 2Sweet

    LMAO!! @Ibramblebush or whateva your name is, I agree!!! But I do think that there should be a certain amount of respect. But if somebody donates their body to science, it’s fair game.

  • anon

    Not a big deal; they worked with bodies, they made jokes w/bodies. These pics weren’t meant to be published for y’all to judge. @Taj: I bet you prolly make @$50K. Think you’re that far away, huh? LOL! Your comment was funnier than the story.

  • Dopamine

    For crying out loud… They were just GOOFING off. NO NEED FOR anyone to loose their HEAD over this… No pun intended… :-}

  • T

    Great…I’m a forensic major…now I have another job opportunity!! Yess….thanks to the numnuts

  • Taj

    @ANON – You seem to be missing the point in my comment. Usually, when jobs don’t pay that much, the quality of the job applicants is usually always questionable, hence why I used the quote that I used.

    As far as us not judging the pictures, he shouldn’t have done that macabre sh!t in the first place. Now it has come back to bit him. It may be no big deal to you, but I bet if that was your loved one, you would be sick to your stomach. Put yourself in someone else’s shoes.

    And for the record…I work for myself. :0)

  • always knew

    It doesn’t matter if the people were paid peanuts or alot of money…

    Noone would appreciate that, if it was them or their loved ones..

    They should have some sort of integrity. Just shows the level of unprofessionalism…

    They should ALL be fired…

  • Taj

    @always knew

    I agree with you 100%

    Honestly I don’t find it horrific. To work in a morgue you either have or develop a different sense of humor. You have to, and its usually not a conscious change. After all if you don’t adapt you probably just stop working there or spiral into depression and cant work anymore. For the people asking what if it was you/a loved one. Honestly I wouldn’t really care.

    Perhaps some background info on me, i have never worked in a morgue, but i am ex military so i feel that i have probably developed a similar amount “mental callous” but i cant really speak on the behalf of morgue workers, only speculate.
