Claim: A female mortuary worker was arrested after becoming pregnant by one of the corpses she was preparing for burial.
Example:[Dead Serious News, November 2010]
A 38 year old female mortuary worker is being held on $250,000 bond after becoming pregnant by one of her clients — a dead man. The alleged crime took place at the Mourning Glory Mortuary just outside of Lexington, Missouri. Police have charged Felicity Marmaduke with desecration of the dead and necrophilia.
Origins: Although the news media occasionally report real cases of workers or interlopers at mortuaries/cemeteries attempting to engage in sex with bodies of the deceased, this item about a female mortuary worker's becoming pregnant through such an activity is not one of them.
