A Swedish woman has been arrested for allegedly having sex with a skeleton.
The 37-year-old was charged with using human bones as sex toys after police found the skeleton in her apartment.
Prosecutor Kristina Ehrenborg-Staffas said the woman had a virtually complete skeleton, and said the bones had been used in an unethical way.
I have never heard of a case like this and neither have my colleagues, so I dare to say that this kind of case is quite uncommon, she said.
In the confidential section of the investigation we have material which indicates she used them in sexual situations.
The woman pleaded not guilty when she was formally charged with violating the peace of the dead at Gothenburg District Court.
She admits to having the bones, but says she collected them out of a historical and archaeological interest, Ms Ehrenborg-Staffas said.
The prosecution’s evidence included two CDs labelled My necrophilia and My first experience which contained a number of document files and pictures.
She has a lot of photos of morgues and chapels, and documents about how to have sex with recently deceased and otherwise dead people, Ms Ehrenborg-Staffas said.
You have to ask yourself why she would have those pictures.
