Exotic dancer pleads not guilty in N.J. body parts case

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. – An exotic dancer accused of illegally keeping human body parts in her home pleaded not guilty yesterday to unlawful disposal of human remains, her lawyer said.

Attorney Donald DiGioia also said bail for his client was cut in half, to $50,000.

Linda Kay, 31, of South Plainfield, was arrested Friday, two days after authorities said she skipped a court appearance. She was taken to the Middlesex County jail in lieu of $100,000 bail.

She was charged last week after police were called to her home on a report that her roommate was suicidal. The roommate was not home, but Kay was. Officers discovered six human skulls and a severed hand in a jar of formaldehyde in her bedroom, according to the police report.

Kay’s bail has been reduced, but she remains in the jail, DiGioia said.

“Obviously, she will try to make bail,” he said.

DiGioia said he is now awaiting the prosecutor’s review and for prosecutors to determine the next step in the case.
