Nicholas Grunke, 23, his twin brother and their friend, are accused of attempting to dig up a 20-year-old woman who died in a motorcycle crash so they could have sex with her in 2006. The men were busted at the cemetery with a van transporting shovels, a tarp, duct tape, a wrecking bar, and a box of condoms.
In a last-ditch effort to prove this man's innocence, his lawyer paints a tale that could be considered just as creepy as their alleged plan.
Right. Now we're supposed to feel some sympathy for the man? Doubtful.
When a 20-year-old woman died in a 2006 motorcycle crash, Edwards says Grunke wanted to "set up a little fairy-tale scenario." Grunke is accused of attempted third-degree sexual assault, attempted criminal damage to a cemetery and attempted misdemeanor theft.The prosecutor says that Grunke wanted to have sex with the body. Unfortunately lower courts dismissed the attempted third-degree sexual assault charges because Wisconsin doesn't have a law making necrophilia a crime.
And what makes this story even more disturbing? This wasn't just one weirdo with some frightening sex plan. He had two others with him who apparently thought this idea was OK too.
What's in the water there?
