An Ohio morgue attendant has admitted having sex with up to 100 corpses, the Daily News reported.
Kenneth Douglas, now 60, of Hamilton Co. ,Ohio, sexually abused three corpses while high on both drugs and alcohol in 1991 and 1992.
But that’s not all.
He has also admitted having sex with up to 100 dead women over the period between 1976 and 1992, while working the night shift—which is a total of 16 years.
I would just get on top of them and pull my pants down,” Hamilton told a court.
Douglas’s crimes came out in the open after families of Douglas’s victims were told they could sue by a federal appeals court on Friday.
Moreover, in a court deposition, Douglas said he would attack the dead women if he was drunk or high on drugs.
“If I hadn’t had anything to drink when I went to work, it wouldn’t happen,” he said, as reported by WPTV. “I would do crack and go in and drink and go in.”
Douglas’ wife said she called the morgue supervisor about her husband smelling like he “reeked of sex” and alcohol whenever she picked him up from work, but the morgue supervisor did nothing, instead told her to stop calling.
Furthermore, the Daily News reported that Douglas’s victims included 23-year-old Charlene Appling, with whom he had sex with on the day she died after being strangled while six months pregnant.
Another victim was 19-year-old Karen Range: Douglas was caught when DNA from his semen was found inside Range’s body.
The killer of Range, David Steffen, appealed his conviction for rape and murder, however, he denied raping her—which was how Douglas’s crimes were unveiled.
In 2008, Douglas admitted his guilt in the Range case and was sentenced to three years in prison. In 2012, he pleaded guilty again to two more cases: Charlene Appling and April Hicks in 1991 and 1992.
