CORPSE FATHERS CHILD AFTER DEATH ON MEDICAL EXAMINER
This is one of those stories that leaves you wondering what’s really going on in the world. This week the assistant pathologist working with the Jackson County medical examiner services, one Jennifer Burrows, has been accused of sexual contact with dozens of corpses over the last 24 months. This has resulted in Burrows getting pregnant and the birth of a baby boy this past January 7th.
SERIAL NECROPHILIAC, WOMAN HAD SEX WITH AT LEAST 60 DEAD MEN
Reports from the Kansas City Missouri Police Department detail that Burrows’ baby is also the son of a man who was killed in a fatal car accident back in March of 2015. Burrows was only supposed to have performed an autopsy on the man. Police claim that they have evidence that Burrows had sexual contact with more than 60 other dead men in her care, with ages at time of death ranging from 17 to 71.
DNA TESTS CONFIRM DEAD MAN IS BABY’S FATHER
“We opened an investigation about this case in October after we were informed that the suspect may have been sexually abusing corpses,” Police Chief Forté told reporters. “We accumulated enough evidence over the last few months to obtain a warrant for a paternity test on her newborn son. It confirmed our suspicions, that the father of her child was, indeed, a 57-year old veterinarian from Texas who was driving through the county when he had a fatal car accident. All the evidence that we have gathered suggests that he had never met Ms. Burrows before his demise and that he was already dead when the baby was conceived.”
NECROPHILIA NOT ILLEGAL WITH STATE OR FEDS, BUT WOMAN FACES 158 OTHER CHARGES
There are currently no laws (state or federal) governing or explicitly outlawing the practice of necrophilia, since the corpse is considered human remains and no longer living. Therefore, it is technically legal in the state of Missouri, and Ms Burrows’ actions are judged as an indecent treatment of a corpse. She is facing a total of 158 charges, including indecent treatment of a corpse, disorderly conduct, indecent exposure and possession of illegal drugs.
EXPERTS AGREE WOMAN MAY HAVE LOST TOUCH WITH REALITY
The psychologists and experts that we interviewed were divided in their interpretation of Ms Burrows’ case. Some, Like Professor Isabella Ramirez of the University of Missouri, believe that the young woman was suffering from a psychosis and had, at least partially, lost contact with reality.
Others, like Dr Gerald Porter, a well-known psychologist and expert in sexual disorders associated with the Institute of Psychological Sciences, believe that the accused is clearly a compulsive necrophiliac, and that her choice of profession was inspired by her sexual deviation in the first place.
All seem to agree, however, that the 26-year old woman was suffering from mental problems and that she will probably register a plea of insanity.
