Grave Digging For Sex

From the Wisconsin State Journal:

Complaint: Sex with body motive for grave digging

Three men charged with attempting to rob a grave Saturday in Cassville were doing so because one of the men had seen the dead woman’s obituary photo and wanted to have sex with her body, according to a criminal complaint filed Tuesday in Grant County Circuit Court.

The men had stopped at a Wal-Mart and bought condoms before heading to the cemetery, police said.

“One of the crimes we study in abnormal criminal behavior is necrophilia. I guess that would be the motive,” Grant County Sheriff Keith Govier said Tuesday, adding that he had never before dealt with such a case.

Govier said the men apparently didn’t know the dead woman.

“They just saw her obituary picture in the newspaper,” he said.
