Urban Legend Come to Life

Stories like this usually fall under the urban legend category. Anyway you slice it, necrophilia is disgusting but since Halloween is just around the corner I’ll share this story with you.

TEANECK — A part-time lab technician at Holy Name Hospital was caught having sex with the body of a 92-year-old woman in the hospital’s morgue, authorities said Monday.

Authorities said Anthony Merino, 24, of West 185th Street in Manhattan was working a shift as a histology lab technician on Sunday morning when he asked a security guard for access to a refrigerated area adjacent to the morgue where human tissue samples are stored. The guard complied and then wandered away for several minutes, Bergen County Prosecutor John L. Molinelli said.”When he came back, he observed Mr. Merino violating the deceased victim” on a gurney, Molinelli said. “He immediately notified Teaneck police.”

Merino was arrested at the hospital later Sunday morning. He was charged with sexual penetration upon deceased human remains, a second-degree crime that carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison and a $100,000 fine.

    Hmmmm, why am I thinking that there is a connection between this post and the above discussion?

    “Merino’s MySpace page lists “working hard” and “going out to the hottest clubs in NYC” among his hobbies.”:

    He forgot to list “Fucking yer gramma’s dead, rotting corpse”.

    Can you say SICKO???

    I’m not sure what’s worse: what the guy did, or the rather cold (pun intended) legal description: charged with sexual penetration upon deceased human remains
