Corpse Abuse

AUGUST 24--A security guard at a Tennessee hospital was found having sex with a female corpse in a body storage room, according to cops who arrested the man for the heinous act.

Cameron Wright, 23, was arraigned this morning on a felony abuse of corpse charge in connection with the shocking incident Wednesday at St. Francis Hospital in Memphis. Wright, seen at right, is locked up in the Shelby County jail in lieu of $3000 bond.

According to police and court records, Wright provided investigators with a typed statement confessing to “having vaginal intercourse with the deceased female in the body storage room.”

Two witnesses--a security guard and a representative with a transplant organization--told police that they discovered Wright having sex with the corpse of a 37-year-old woman who had died earlier that day of a heart attack.

Following the death of the woman, a kindergarten teacher, hospital workers placed her corpse in a body storage room since she had agreed be an organ donor. Police allege that Wright entered that room and abused the decedent’s corpse.

Wright was immediately fired and the hospital issued a statement declaring that, “Treating those we serve with dignity and respect is our top priority.  The behavior of this individual does not represent what our hospital stands for, and these actions are completely unacceptable.” (1 page)
