Q. Was the cannibalism a sexual gratification too?

A. It was. It started out as an experimentation. Made me feel like they were more a part of me.

Q. (That’s interesting.)

A. So it did give me some satisfaction and there was some gratification.

Q. (How would you prepare it?)

A. Uh…on the stove, on the skillet, uh, just like you prepare a regular piece of meat, they’d be, uh, cut into, you know, sizes that were small enough to eat.

Q. (Any other organs?)

A. Hearts, liver, thigh meat, biceps, biceps…

Q. (How did it taste?)

A. Uh…there’s no way of saying it without sounding, uh…gruesome…

Q. (I don’t find it offensive.)

A. Well, it…I, I don’t know how to describe it. You’ve had filet mignon, haven’t you?

Q. Uh huh, that’s one of my favorites.

A. Yeah. Very tender…

The trial of a Swedish woman charged with “disturbing the peace of the dead” by hoarding human skeletal parts for sexual use in Gothenburg.

“This is the strangest case I ever had to deal with,” prosecutor Kristina Ehrenborg-Staffas said at trial’s opening, reported the Goteborgs-Posten daily. In September, police found six human skulls, a human backbone and a large number of other bones, including femurs, in the 37-year-old’s flat in a suburb of the west coast city of Gothenburg. Some skeletal parts were kept in a freezer, others were used for sexual gratification and therefore the woman was “guilty of treating the dead in an offensive and unethical manner,” Ehrenborg-Staffas said last week. The woman has denied the charges, arguing that she bought the skeleton parts over the internet because of an interest in history and archaeology. In her flat, however, investigators found digging equipment, body bags and instructions on how to open graves. Forensic tests suggested the bones were at least 45 years old. The woman could face a maximum two-year jail term or a fine if convicted.


Kevin Davis, an 18 year old from Corpus Christi Texas killed his own mother by beating her with a hammer, strangling her with a cord, and stabbing her in the head.  He then raped her corpse, telling investigators “Guess I lost my virginity to a dead corpse.”

“I don’t have standards, I don’t have morals. A body’s a body – a piece of meat,” Davis said.

Your honor, it is over now. This has never been a case of trying to get free. I didn’t ever want freedom. Frankly, I wanted death for myself. This was a case to tell the world that I did what I did not for reasons of hate, I hated no one. I know I was sick or evil, or both. Now I believe I was sick. The doctors have told me about my sickness and now I have some peace.
