An Ohio morgue employee revealed he may have had sex with 'a hundred' corpses and continued to do so even after his wife had tipped off authorities.
Speaking about the incidents in deposition audio obtained by WCPO, Hamilton County employee Kenneth Douglas said 'I would get on top of them and pull my pants down.'
When talking about the body of victim Charlene Appling, Douglas said 'I do remember going in the freezer, pulling her in one of the rooms in the back' before he told an investigator he 'had sex with her.'
When asked about the number of corpses he had sex with, Douglas answered 'It could have been a hundred' in the deposition audio.
Douglas attributed his behavior to drug and alcohol abuse in the deposition.
'If I wasn't drinking, or hadn't had anything to drink when I went to work, it wouldn't happen. I would do crack and go in and I would drink and go in,' he said.
His wife was featured in a deposition video obtained by WCPO, in which she said she tried to contact someone about her husband's behavior - but she was dismissed.
