Mortuary Employee Fired for Engaging in Intimate Acts with Deceased’s Doll
An employee at a mortuary in Nebraska, USA, was fired last week after being caught engaging in sexual activity with a life-sized doll assigned to transport a corpse, police said according to the New York Post.
Ryan Smith, 41, was arrested on Friday on charges of theft, trespassing, and tampering with physical evidence – and was immediately dismissed from his role at the Omaha mortuary.
Smith was reportedly emotionally drawn to the doll after seeing it inside the Rock Creek Apartments residence, where he and a colleague were sent to pick up the body of a person who died of natural causes, according to court documents obtained by WOWT, as reported by NYP.
The two were working on behalf of Mid America First Call, a company that removes, transports, stores bodies, and performs cremations.
Later that day, Smith allegedly called the property manager and claimed that the Sarpy County Sheriff’s Office was sending him back to the unit to retrieve the doll so it could be subjected to a “biopsy” – a bizarre request that was immediately denied.
That’s when he sneaked into the deceased’s home and engaged in intimate acts with the doll.
The manager stumbled upon the disturbing scene while investigating the noises coming from the locked and chained unit.
Smith then allegedly emerged – his clothes stained – and warned the manager that he would return with permission to purchase the doll.
This threat proved serious; the manager called the police and reported the disturbance, expressing concern that the mortuary worker might return to break in and steal property from the apartment.
