Vietnamese Man Dug Up Wife's Corpse 'So He Could Hug Her'
Posted 12/3/09
This is not as bizarre as a man who was having sex with his dead wife for about 15 years, back in the 1890s I suppose. I'll try to find this story if you're interested.

I think i know what you are talking about. Is this about that doctor who fell in love with a nurse but the nurse died of Tuberculosis? Then they found out that the doctor had dug up the girl's body and took it home and was having intercourse with it?

I stole this article from Cracked.com and actually it wasn't 15 years AND sex wasn't involved (or was it?). Bad bad memory. But here's the article

A German immigrant and doctor, Count Carl Von Cosel became obsessed with 20-year-old Cuban tuberculosis patient Elena Hoyos. Intent on saving her, Von Cosel subjected Hoyos to numerous cures of his own invention, but sadly brain frying electric shocks did little to cure her lungs (go figure). Despite his efforts she passed away and Von Cosel not only paid for her funeral but a lavish mausoleum. Gee, wasn't that nice of him?

Problem was, to the Count the mausoleum wasn't so much an eternal resting place for Hoyos as a secluded love shack where their romance could bloom. For two years Von Cosel spent almost every night inside the mausoleum, before apparently deciding it was time to take the relationship to the next level and have Elena move in with him.

In the dead of night Von Cosel stole her body from the cemetery, dragged the corpse to his house on the back of a toy wagon and reconstructed his beloved with wire coat hangers, wax and plaster. Oh, and what a job he did.



Von Cosel would live with Hoyos for seven years, keeping the body in his bed (where we certainly hope nothing untoward happened; they were unmarried after all).
Elena's sister finally began to suspect something was up (perhaps after noticing the door to his sister's mausoleum hanging open for seven years straight) and the Count was arrested. He got off Scott free though as the statute of limitations on his crime had expired, plus we imagine neither the judge or jury wanted to spend any time in the same room with the dude.

The body was put on public display, attracting nearly 7000 gawkers (proving folks back then were all about class) and eventually buried in a secret unmarked grave just in case ol' Carl started jonesing for some mummified tail.

As for the Count himself he became a minor celebrity, created a life-sized effigy of Hoyos and made money inviting tourists into his home (again, class). Von Cosel would even write an autobiography, which appeared in respected literary publication "Fantastic Adventures."

i think it was. i saw a documentary of this on TV a long time ago and, if i remember correctly, it did mention the doctor inserting/placing a vaginal canal so that "intercourse would be possible" and he covered up the stench of the rotting corpse with a lot of perfume which is, i think, another reason why he got caught because his neighbors started complaining about the strong perfume smell. And after Elena's family took the corpse away and buried it at an undisclosed location, they later found the doctor dead (i'm not sure if it was right away or a certain time has passed) next to a manikin or a life size doll with a mask that looks very much like the girl and they even found a letter where the bodies where saying that a lot of people trying to rob him of his precious Elena ( the goes something like that.... these are just some bits that i remember)



Update:
Here is the link to the HBO documentary that i am referring to

i had a feeling i'd turn myself like that someday... if not i had fixed some issues of mine

He was obviously finding it very difficult to accept that his wife passed away and was desperate for some sort of connection with her, this being the corpse, so he dug her up. You can understand why he did it. Personally, I can imagine nothing worse than seeing someone I love like that and would rather remember them the way they were.

as much as he loves his wife i think it would be painful just to hug/sleep with her for... what?... five years...
i think he might either be in the point of love insanity or ... he is just different... =| hmmm

This is a bit funny what you say It doesn't matter if you're married or not: kinkyness with a dead person isn't the coolest thing to do Let alone decomposted corpse looking as it looks like on my picture in the spoiler.
