Alejandro Razo, a male nurse at Sherman Oaks Hospital, was taken into custody over the weekend after allegedly committing a sex act on a female corpse.
Officers responded to the hospital Sunday evening, where security guards had 61-year-old Razo in custody.
No details on what led hospital staff or security personnel to believe Razo had violated said corpse.
“The call indicated that a deceased patient had somehow been violated by an employee of the hospital,” said LAPD Lt. Andy Neiman.
“It’s a very sensitive case,” Neiman continued. “Because you’re dealing with somebody who is deceased, who’s a loved one of somebody, who really couldn’t even fight back, so it’s our job to fight back for them.”
Razo was arrested on a state health code violation, but was released on $20,000 bail while the investigation continues.
Interesting to note that necrophilia wasn’t even considered a crime in California until 2004. If convicted, Razo is looking at about three years behind bars.
Necrophilia – when one has the overwhelming desire to crack open a cold one.
Ah, I kill me…
