MACON, GEORGIA: A man in Bibb County, Georgia, has been arrested after he was found allegedly having sex with a dead woman. The alleged incident happened on Sunday morning, May 17.

According to reports, Bibb County officers arrived at the 100 block of Walnut Street after receiving a 911 call that said that two persons were involved in sexual activity on the front steps of the property. When detectives reached they found Kenny Obryn Whitehead outside the Daybreak Resource Center having sex with the woman. They soon instructed the 55-year-old man to wear clothes, but they discovered that the woman was not responsding. 

An official said that an investigation later showed that she "had been deceased for some time”. The detectives also said that they did not think the woman died as a result of a crime. Bibb County Coroner Leon Jones said that an autopsy will be performed to determine how the woman, whose identity has not been released, died. Meanwhile, police have charged Whitehead with necrophilia; he has been held without bond. If found guilty, he may have to serve a maximum prison sentence of up to two years behind bars.

The Daybreak Resource Center, where the alleged incident happened, gives hygiene, health, education, and job preparation for the homeless population in Macon. The organization is supported by ten local church communities of different denominations that work for the common goal of supporting their community. According to the Centre’s website, it helps support around 100 homeless people a day.

In a similar incident, a man in Great Barr, Birmingham, England was charged in December 2018 for allegedly having sex with a corpse in a funeral home. The accused identified as Khurum Shazada allegedly broke into a Co-op undertaker in November that year and had intercourse with a dead body in a coffin.

“An unemployed Birmingham man has been charged with sexual penetration of a corpse and trespass following a break-in at a Co-op funeral parlor in Great Barr on Sunday 11 November. Khurum Shazada, 23, appeared at Birmingham magistrates’ court on November 21 and was remanded into custody,” a spokesman for West Midlands police said at the time.

While in another sickening incident, a Nigerian teen boy murdered and raped his mother to get rich quickly. Samuel Akpobome confessed to the crime in November 2018 and admitted that he strangled his mother Christiana after drugging her with a potion concocted by a witch doctor. The 18-year-old said that the witch doctor promised him he would get rich easily if he would kill his mother and then sleep with her dead body. “The native doctor told me to kill my mother and sleep with her. I strangled her when she was sleeping and then slept with her. The doctor told me to do so and keep her corpse for two days. He said I should cut my mother’s ear and fingers and bring them to him. I wanted to cut the ears and fingers before the people came in. My mother did not offend me. I killed her because of the money,” Akpobome admitted.
