– The man admits to the two murders and the desecration of dozens of corpses
A 67-year-old hospital electrician in Kent, south of England, has been accused of sexually abusing the bodies of women and girls for years. These acts were exposed when he was arrested for two murders.
A British hospital electrician has confessed to sexually abusing dozens of corpses and killing two young women. The 67-year-old pleaded guilty to murdering a 20- and 25-year-old woman in Kent in southern England in 1987, according to the British case, CPS. After the actions, he allegedly hurt their body.
Prior to the trial, he pleaded guilty to 51 counts, including 44 defamations. However, investigators believe the man sexually abused at least 99 bodies at the Kent Hospital morgue.
Movie recordings of insults
Thanks to new DNA discoveries, the man was arrested on suspicion in late 2020, after investigators discovered him. During a search of his home, police found hard drives containing degrading photos and movie recordings.
According to the Justice Department, the man filmed and photographed the abuse of the bodies of dozens of women and girls in the hospital morgue between 2008 and 2020. By working as an electrician he had access to rooms. So far 78 bodies have been identified, including three minors and a woman over the age of 85.
CPS attorney Libby Clark said the charges against him were “unprecedented in British legal history.” Health Minister Sajid Javed was “deeply shocked” by the actions and announced that he would review access to the morgue.
