The Huffington Post reported that Kenneth Douglas, the 60-year old self-confessed necrophilic, has admitted to have had intercourse with over 100 women’s corpses, most of which were being stored for autopsy, from 1979 to 1999.
His 1991 gross corpse abuse conviction came when he admitted to having sex with a 19 year old woman’s nearly-decapitated body. He was traced when his semen was found in a 2008 autopsy when the woman’s killer denied raping her.
“I would just get on top of them and pull my pants down,” Hamilton was quoted as saying in a deposition.
The county is now being sued by the families of three of the victims, who said the morgue director failed “recklessly and wantonly” to supervise Douglas.
Their case is strengthened by Douglas’ wife, who testified in the deposition, saying that she tried warning the morgue of her husband’s actions, but was told to ‘stop calling.’
The county said that it should not be held liable, arguing that the cases involved unknown criminal acts of an employee.
