This is one of those news stories you’d like to think isn’t real…but it is
WASHINGTON, Ind.—Add this one to the “unfortunately it’s a real story” file.
On Jan. 12, Geneva, Ohio, resident Richard Sanden, 55, was charged with necrophilia after police reviewed a video tape found at the scene of a drug crime (but what ostensibly began as a 911 call.)
Sanden was originally arrested on drug charges after he called paramedics and told authorities the woman he was with stopped breathing while they were having sex. Sanden claimed he did not know that Rebecca Whitehead, 48, was dead and that he tried CPR when he noticed she was not breathing. (News reports aren’t clear on exactly what stage of the game he noticed she wasn’t breathing, nor at what stage of it she actually STOPPED.)
The two ‘met’ via a “telephone date line” and had been “seeing” each other that way for about two and a half months. They decided to make it real and hook up, so Sanden traveled to Indiana. Apparently the two had been drinking and doing dope all day and when they got down to bidness, it was just a lil much for Ms. Whitehead, this according to TV reports, and she succumbed while allegedly under such influence.
As if it weren’t bad enough, though, when law enforcement went to review the tape found at the scene, authorities revised the charges, and Sanden was also charged with mutilating a corpse.
No news reports are going into any kind of detail on what THAT involved.
Sanden is now being held on $500,000 bond in the Daviess County Security Center in Washington, Indiana. They’ve got him on the fast track and he’s set for jury trial May 7.
The cause of Whitehead’s death is still under investigation by the local police since authorities are still waiting for toxicology and autopsy results.
