Mortuary worker faces necrophilia charge

2012-01-23 10:32

Cape Town - A former mortuary worker is facing charges of necrophilia in the Paarl Regional Court after allegedly having sex with the body of a 7-year-old girl nearly four years ago.

The girl died after she was hit by a car in Wellington, reported the Weekend Argus.

The man was apparently involved in moving the child’s body from the accident scene to the mortuary.

The man, who can’t be named as he has not yet pleaded, is married and the father of two children.

A pathologist saw that the girl’s body had been violated.

A warrant of arrest was issued for the man after he failed to appear in court, but this was later withdrawn and described as a “misunderstanding” by the accused’s lawyer.

He was released on his own recognisance.

    Let me read that again - HE WAS RELEASED???? Good Grief!!! There is not even any dignity after death. I am so sorry for the parents - this for them is a double tragedy.

  • Michelle - 2012-01-23 10:41

    Oh my word - of all the disgusting things the human race do to each other, it certainly doesn't get worse than this. This man has some serious mental issues!

      Matthew - 2012-01-23 10:54

      It is worse doing it to someone who is alive.

      John - 2012-01-23 17:17

      "Sub-genius" How appropriate...

      Heiku - 2012-01-23 17:45

      Wait.. so you people think its better to rape someone who is alive? SICKOS

      Warren - 2012-01-23 19:41

      @ SubGenius: So, not quite the kick you were looking for? Only three people replied to your sub genius troll comment. SBTW, you are clearly not very good at trolling, maybe you should rather spend your time figuring out just how you're going to pass grade 8.

  • Alex - 2012-01-23 10:41

    Lord have Mercy on sick people like this one....WTF!!!

      E=MC2 - 2012-01-23 14:50

      oh VOVO dont be stupid. Bad stuff doesnt happen because there is no God, it happens because people turn away from Him.... btw, if there is no God, then there are no demons either

      Rentia - 2012-01-23 15:00

      E=MC2 thank you for clearing this up for VOVO! Can't believe people dont believe in God but they hang onto believes of demons. Wake up and stop vomiting VOVO, seems you're trying to troll.

  • Tokollo - 2012-01-23 10:42

  • Bongani - 2012-01-23 10:55

    i have only heard of adults who get violeted in this manner while dead.We should look at the head, no normal person can do this. I am not prepared to judge him because i am not God.

  • Retardus - 2012-01-23 10:57

    FURN THE SICK F@&**!!!

      Warren - 2012-01-23 19:47

      @ Retardus: Furn the sick buck, maybe?

  • Darren - 2012-01-23 11:00

    Umm. If he did it then yes... sick bastard. But he's facing charges. what if the girl was raped before the accident?

      Ian - 2012-01-23 11:04

      its called dna

      Darren - 2012-01-23 12:06

      Ya i get the dna testing but if everyone reads the headline "...faces necrophilia charge" not "...has been found guilty of necrophilia" What if he isnt guilty. can you imagine what his family are going through. People so quick to judge.

    find this douche bag , draw and quater him , send his limbs to the 4 corners of S.A . amd stick his head on a poll ,

  • Zion - 2012-01-23 11:25

    This sick act exceeds anything the normal mind has the capability to comprehend. It is not done in the animal world nor in ancient civilizations or in primitive tribal communities. The only punishment for this atrocity is The death sentence or at the very least a life sentence to the end of his life. What has man kind become? monsters worse than animals.

      John - 2012-01-23 11:28

      a life sentence in jail , nah to good for scum like this !

  • jacques.h.kirchner - 2012-01-23 11:29

  • Shirley - 2012-01-23 11:47

    Beyond comprehension! If this freak has children I would seriously investigate if he hasnt been molesting his own children! There is no rehab for fraks like this so he must be institusionalised for life. He has probably done this often.

  • Jou - 2012-01-23 11:51

    This is what I call a monster.

  • idille.borchers - 2012-01-23 11:53

      idille.borchers - 2012-01-23 12:20

      What about dna?

      Zion - 2012-01-23 12:22

      The person under suspicion moved the body to the morgue. A pathologist must examine the body to accurately determine the actual cause of death. Pathologists are specialists in their field and are highly qualified. The pathologist, according to his findings determined that the body was violated after death. The prior movements of the perpetrator and body is known. This story would not have been released had there been any doubt.

      Iceberg - 2012-01-23 16:17

      Don't know Zion. News24 are known to distort and otherwise flavour news just to enrage people into this type of debate. Got to take things they publish with a some salt.

  • raegan.mcreed - 2012-01-23 12:12

    this guys punishment should be of the worst kind, he should be strapped up then raped by a horse till his ass tears...sick f@$k !!!

      Zion - 2012-01-23 12:23

      Animals don't rape.

      raegan.mcreed - 2012-01-23 12:48

      @ ZION, I know that you twat, but i was hypothetically speaking

  • Luke - 2012-01-23 12:22


  • Christopher - 2012-01-23 12:47

    SAVAGES! I have realised there is another missing link before the missing link.

  • candice.raley - 2012-01-23 12:48

    WTF really??? That is just disgusting in so many way...

  • Sean - 2012-01-23 12:51

    Mu y stomach is churning!!! What worries me the most is how many times has this taken place in the past and not caught out!? This thing needs to be dropped down a longdrop and forgotten about so that he can learn how sick he is! He hasn't pleaded yet.... he was caught red handed While he spends his Tim in the longdrop the rats must start chewing away at that thing that is worrying him, it must happen slowly and and as painfully as possible. Police pls make sure that DNA tests are done properly so that the state has an airtight case against him. If there are CCTV cameras in the morgue, pls review all footage as well to see what else you can get on him to put him away for the rest of his life. He may as well plead guilty, save taxpayers money and the presiding judge must impose 100 life sentences upon him, his cell must not even have a window for any daylight to shine upon him, he doesn't deserve it!

      George - 2012-01-24 07:55

      @seanpresherhughes_1 I really do not know where you have learned to read. Nowhere in the article does it say he was caught red handed. He only appears now before a court for something he apparantly did 4 years ago.If he was caught red handed he would have appeared 4 years ago and not now. Where does the article say it happened in the morgue? FYI no harddrive in the worls is big enough to keep that data and these systems are designed to delete the firts recordings after about a month. If he did it i am also saying throw him in jail and i share your centiments. Many people handle a body when it comes to the morgue so there is more than this that you read. before you spend time making such comments rather spend time how to read , stay focussed and give comments that is worth reading.

  • Koos - 2012-01-23 13:01

    This is something that occurs more often than most think. Heard the story of a woman over the radio owning a plumbing business in Brakpan called out to a mortuary just to find the blockage being the result of half a bucket of worn condoms. Sick, sick world we're living in.

  • Sean1877 - 2012-01-23 13:04

    i love this country. even if you are accussed of something, the idiots that comment on this sight convict and sentence people before they even go to trial and here the facts. pathetic
