Just to warn you guys, this is a weird one
A Bolivian man has been arrested and faces charges after he was caught having sex with the corpse of a woman. The 27-year-old nurse had worked at the hospital for six months when the unfortunate incident played out. To make matters even worse he was caught by the husband of the deceased who, and this is a direct quote from the police, “beat him until the uniformed security arrived”.
We really can’t blame the husband for that one.
Interestingly Bolivia does not have any laws against necrophilia, probably because it’s a relatively small country with just 11 million people. Also it’s probably just one of those things that you only make a law against after it happens. After all, you have to be a pretty weird person to anticipate corpse sex. But still, without the law, the Bolivian authorities are trying to work out the worst possible offence the nurse could be charged. So far they have ‘profaning a corpse’ and ‘obscene acts’ as the two most likely charges but everyone generally agrees on the same thing: this guy is f*cked up and he needs to go to jail.
The face of 27-year-old Grover Macuchapi who, uh... well he looks a bit odd, doesn't he?
But, how does the young man defend himself?
“I do not know, something has happened in my head. Something happened ... It was like a trance. The next thing I remember was feeling a blow from behind when the woman’s husband hit me,” he told local media.
This sounds to us like he's putting it down to sleep-walking. Which is a particularly ballsy attempt to get away with it but we're pretty sure it’s not going to work. At the end of the day, he was caught having sex with a corpse. And you are not putting that down to sleep-walking! 'Raiding the fridge' is something you can blame on sleep-walking. Not necrophilia.
On a more serious note, it must have been a devastating experience for the husband of the deceased. Not only was he grieving the loss of one of the most important people in his life but the very people who he trusted to help care for her remains proceeded to abuse that trust in one of the most sickening ways imaginable. It must have been extremely upsetting, and we’re glad the police decided to let it slip that he beat the living-daylights out of the culprit. In the circumstances, it was an understandable reaction to the events.
