A male nurse at a Los Angeles-area hospital was arrested on Sunday after being caught allegedly having sex with a corpse.
Security guards at Sherman Oaks Hospital claim they caught 61-year-old Alejandro Razo of Reseda, a nurse at the facility, in the act of having sex with a female corpse. The guards then confronted the alleged necrophiliac nurse and held him until police arrived. According to police, Razo was arrested on a state Health and Safety Code violation because the body was deceased.
Razo was released on $20,000 bail pending an investigation of the alleged incident, KTLA reports.
One LAPD officer who responded to the call regarding the alleged necrophilia said he "couldn't believe it."
"When I got the first inquiry, it kind of blew me away," Officer Cleon Joseph told NBC Los Angeles. "I couldn't believe it. But these things happen."
They do happen. Just a couple of months ago, a 37-year-old Swedish woman was arrested in Gothenburg for literally having skeletons in her closet that she allegedly used for sexual gratification.
And in a particularly bizarre and brutal case last year, a 29-year-old Canadian porn star named Luka Rocca Magnotta allegedly murdered, dismembered, cannibalized and sodomized Chinese student Lin Jun in Montreal.
