While Washington was once known as THE capital of horse fuckers around the world, we eventually got around to banning such practices. [Here’s Mudede’s piece on that happy subject. —Ed.] Now it seems, after a judge’s ruling, Wisconsin can be known as THE capital of necrophiliacs around the world. Cue Alice Cooper’s song Cold Ethyl.
Here’s the article that B.D. is talking about. A snippet:
(AP) Madison, Wis. Three men who dug up a young woman’s corpse to have sex with it after seeing her obituary photo cannot be charged with attempted sexual assault because Wisconsin has no law against necrophilia, an appeals court ruled Thursday.
A judge was correct to dismiss the charges against twin brothers Nicholas and Alexander Grunke and Dustin Radke, all 21, because lawmakers never intended to criminalize sex with a corpse, the District 4 Court of Appeals said in a 3-0 ruling.
The cause of the woman’s death in the first place? Motorcycle crash.
Follow the link and there are pictures of the boys. (One of the twins does his hair differently, though they appear to be identical.) There is also a video that I just can’t bring myself to click on. I leave it to Slog’s intrepid readers click on it and find out more if more is what they want.
Aside: There are a couple other “local news” video segments next to the one I can’t bear to click on, including “Man with Cerebral Palsy Drowns in River” and “Search Continues for 2nd Sewer Worker.”
