A 60-year-old Ohio morgue attendant has admitted to having sex with at least 100 corpses while on the job.
Kenneth Douglas, a resident of Hamilton, Ohio, said he had sex with the corpses between 1976 and 1992 while working the night shift.
In his deposition to the 6th US Circuit Court of Appeals, Douglas said he was drunk and on drugs while he carried out the perverse acts.
He said, “I would just get on top of them and pull my pants down. If I hadn’t had anything to drink when I went to work, it wouldn’t happen. I would do crack and go in and drink and go in.”
Douglas was inititally convicted of gross corpse abuse in 2008 after admitting to having sex with the corpse of a 19-year-old woman who had been murdered and nearly decapitated in 1991.
In 2012, Douglas admitted to having sex with two more corpse and he also confessed to having had sex with the corpse of a murder victim the day she was killed.
His crimes were first revealed when DNA connected him to semen found in one of his victims in 2008. The woman’s killer, David Steffan, admitted killing the woman but denied raping her, according to the NY Daily News.
Meanwhile, Douglas’ wife said she had tried to alert the morgue about her husband’s actions, but was told to stop calling.
