Morgue Employee Admits to Having Sex With 100 Corpses

A 60 year old Ohio resident has admitted in a deposition to having sex with up to 100 corpses of dead women in the Hamilton County morgue between 1976 and 1992.

The deposition is part of a civil lawsuit between families of three of the victims against Hamilton County, who said that the morgue director failed “recklessly and wantonly” to supervise the employee.

Details of the abuse surfaced during the deposition when the man described his inability to have sex with the corpses without the aid of alcohol and crack cocaine. “I would just get on top of them and pull my pants down,” he said. “If I hadn’t had anything to drink when I went to work, it wouldn’t happen.”

The morgue employee was convicted of gross corpse abuse in 2008 after having sex with the corpse of a 19-year old woman who had been murdered and nearly decapitated in 1991. Many of the corpses were abused while awaiting autopsies, which is how the employee’s crimes were first discovered. Semen belonging to the employee was found in a female murder victim. The woman’s killer had admitted to killing the woman but denied raping her, according to the NY Daily News.

The lawsuit against Hamilton County is supported by the wife of the employee, who said she tried to notify the morgue about her husband’s alleged actions, but was told by the morgue to stop calling. “He said, ‘Whatever happens on county time and on county property is county business,’” said the employee’s wife.
