Cemetery attendants at Monchegorsk graveyard in Russia have caught a 21-year-old man who allegedly exhumed the corpse of a newly buried woman and sexually defiled her body.
Mirror.co.uk reports that when police arrived the scene, the remains of the 39-year-old woman had been sexually brutalized and this is the second case of a sexual attack on a dead woman in the north of Russia this year.
Reports also reveal that the first of such incidence happened in the Komi Republic when two men were jailed for raping the dead body of a young woman in February, 2015.
According to the report, police sources in Monchegorsk, Russia, in the far north region of Murmansk, said the man opened the coffin of the deceased and started his ill-sexual escapade.
As the story goes, a criminal case has been opened under an article of the Russian criminal code on desecration of the dead and their burial places and maximum punishment under the law would be 3 months in prison, or a fine of up to £400.
The accused, as at the time of the report, had not been identified but is believed he is from the neighbouring Arkhangelsk region.
