Boned For Boning Bones: On November 21st of 2012, the story of a 37-year-old Swedish woman, living in Gothenburg, who was found to have a horde of human bones, and extensive collection of necrophilia photography, hit the media. She had been charged with "disturbing the peace of the dead" after police found CDs filled with explicit "bone play" photos, over 100 parts of skeletal remains, and the access code to a local morgue, in her apartment. Her Internet interactions included comments like "It's worth it. I want my man like he is, whether he is dead or alive."
Additionally, she was found to have sold three skulls and a spine to someone of shared interest earlier in the same year. The entire case pivoted on whether or not she had actually "raided a tomb" or legally purchased the bones. When no evidence could be found of tomb raiding, she was acquitted of all charges. She then turned around and sued for compensation from the state relating to defamation and irreparable damage to her reputation. She asked for $15 million but only recieved $8,193 in a judgement... However, her name, address and picture were shrubbed from the web in the wake of the case... the question lingers... was she an over zealous osteologist (bone freak), or was she a necrophiliac?" #babettebombshell #strangehistory #truecrime #criminaljustice #necrophilia #osteology #necrophiliac #ghoul #ghouls #graverobbing #graverobbers #fortean #xfiles
