A woman in western Sweden who was arrested after police found skeletons in her apartment has now been charged for using the bones as sex toys, a hobby she claimed was motivated by an interest in history.
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, prosecutor Kristina Ehrenborg-Staffas told The Local.
A 37-year-old woman, who was arrested in September, was formally charged on Tuesday at the Gothenburg District Court for the crime of
violating the peace of the dead (brott mot griftesfriden).
The prosecutor could not explain how the woman had managed to collect almost an entire skeleton, but explained that the human remains had been used in an “unethical” way.
In the confidential section of the investigation we have material which indicates she used them in sexual situations, the prosecutor told the TT news agency — via redwolf.newsvine.com
