A while back, my ex’s mother, Mern, had a knee replacement done. I went over to her house to keep her company and to help get her food. As was often the case, Mern and I decided it would be a fantastic idea to watch Lifetime movies all day. It was on this day that I saw the absolute most disturbing thing I have ever seen in my entire life.
Bottom line, a young girl killed herself to get out of a toxic relationship. Boyfriend couldn’t make the funeral because he had been arrested for some reason or other. When he got out of jail, he went to the cemetery, dug up her grave, got in the concrete vault, opened the coffin, crawled inside, and snuggled with her.
I remember my ex’s brother walking in the room around the time this was happening and him being just as horrified, “Jesus Christ, what the fuck are you two watching?!”
I looked over at Mern and said, “I don’t think I have ever seen or will ever see anything that disturbing again. Ever.” She looks at me and says, “yeah, but at least we know it’s just TV.”
And then this happened:
Apparently, corpse cuddles aren’t just for television.
Ew, just….ew. I can’t decide what the worst part of this is. The fact that this poor woman was in her 80s? That she had been dead and buried for weeks? That the perpetrators are teenagers?? This whole thing is like a rancid onion, every layer you peel back is new levels of gross.
Also, thanks so much for “corpse cuddles”. Definitely needed THAT visual burned into my brain, haha!
It makes me wonder what you do with kids like this. Jail? Hospitalization? Something serious has to be done though, the world absolutely does NOT need another Carl Tanzler.
Dissy again… I think we need more information here. I mean, was it planned out? Were they maybe planning on some basic grave robbing and thought, “what the hell, we’re here… may as well.” Was it a dare? Is that why they even went to the cemetery to begin with? And then, that thought begs the question: is pre-meditated corpse abuse a harsher penalty than spontaneous corpse abuse? Should it be?
Of course, we had questions about how decomposed a corpse would be. Per the story, she was relatively fresh, but we were curious to know what condition this poor woman’s body would have been in. Lucky for us that my brother-from-another-mother is dating an undertaker.
Per our professional consultation, all conditions being ideal, there would be no decomposition at all. But still… ewww…
Whatever these kids were after, they sure were committed. It can’t be easy to dig up a grave. And people say this younger generation is lazy. pfft… please.
Well, that’s this week’s edition of WTF Friday! We hope you had as much fun with it as we did. For now? Lifetime is calling…
