A hospital security guard had sex with a woman’s corpse in a body storage room just hours after she died, it is claimed.
It is alleged that Cameron Wright, 23, was caught in the act by fellow security guards, who then alerted police.
Detectives who questioned Wright claim he admitted to having sex with the dead woman, named as 37-year-old teacher April Parham by her devastated and outraged father.
Ms Parham’s body was being prepared for organ donation when Wright allegedly violated her corpse.
She died on Wednesday morning at St Francis Hospital in the US city of Memphis, Tennessee.
Late Wednesday night, Wright’s colleagues walked into the storage room as he allegedly had sex with her body.
Wright has since been charged with abuse of a corpse following the incident in Memphis, Tennessee.
Ms Parham’s father, James Parham Snr, said he was already overcome with grief when hospital staff called to tell him that police were investigating a sex crime against his deceased daughter.
He told Fox 13: "I got a real problem with the people in charge. We have problems with her death as it is, but to have this going after that.
"We need some concrete answers and someone to be held accountable."
He told WMC Action News: "After you pass, we think finally she’s not suffering, she’s not hurting no more and to find out this,” James said.
“It’s devastating. It hurts.
"I want whatever the fullest extent of the law can happen to happen."
The family have been left struggling to understand how something so appalling could happen.

Ms Parnam’s brother James Jnr said: "We’re going to get some answers. We’re going to do what we can to make sure this doesn’t happen again."
Police said they were called to the hospital after Wright’s colleagues found him having sex with the corpse of a woman.
His colleagues claimed they witnessed the act in a body storage room.
Wright allegedly admitted to the incident when he was taken to the force’s Felony Response Office.
Security at the hospital is provided by a private contractor.
St Francis Hospital told Fox 13 that the worker’s actions "are completely unacceptable" and he has been sacked.
All security guards must pass background checks before they are hired, the hospital added.
Wright’s Facebook page says he had previously worked at a different hospital in Memphis.
