Kenneth Douglas, a morgue attendant from Hamilton, OH, will probably never work in that profession again. In fact, it’ll probably be hard for him to find any work after he committed what may be the most egregious violation that one can make in that profession. Douglas admitted to having sex with at least 100 corpses between 1976 and 1992.
According to The Daily News, he first admitted guilt in 2008 after his semen was found inside of 19-year-old Karen Range’s corpse during the trial of David Steffen who stood trial for her murder. For that, he caught a three year prison sentence. He’s pleaded guilty to more charges since, like abusing the corpse of 23-year-old Charlene Appling a day after she was strangled while six months pregnant.
“I would just get on top of them and pull my pants down,” admitted Douglas. He would do so after getting drunk or high. He explained, “If I hadn’t had anything to drink when I went to work, it wouldn’t happen.” His wife would complain about him “reeking of sex” when she would pick him up after a shift.
According to The Daily News, “The extent of his crimes have only come to light after it emerged that Hamilton County faces huge legal bills after the families of Douglas’s victims were told they could sue by a federal appeals court on Friday.”
