Man has sex with TV star’s corpse

A MORGUE worker has been sacked after tests revealed he had sex with the corpse of a murdered reality TV star.

Oksana Aplekaeva, from Russia's top reality show Dom-2, was found by a truck driver murdered on the side of a motorway in 2008, The Sun reports.

Her killer has never been found but new information led police to exhume her body and carry out more detailed forensic tests.

Evidence collected revealed that Ms Aplekaeva had been sexually violated after her death, with DNA tests showing a forensic morgue technician named only as 37-year-old Alexander had been the culprit.

Russian media reports that Alexander cannot be punished for his deed, as there is no Russian law that deals with such incidents.

Alexander, still working at the morgue until the discovery of his actions, has been forced to resign.

He said: "I could not argue against science. I have not been able to find a job for three months."

He also claims that his wife left him and changed her phone number.

Alexander worked for the morgue for 12 years. There was no suggestion in Russian reports that he had interfered with other corpses during that time.

Police underline that Alexander did not have anything to do with Ms Aplekaeva's murder.

The still-unidentified killer is believed to have thrown Ms Aplekaeva out of a moving car and then returned to the scene, an undisclosed location in Russia, to cover up the body.
