A male nurse has been arrested after he was caught in the act of having sex with a dead woman at Sherman Oaks Hospital in Los Angeles County.
Security guards at the hospital caught Alejandro Lazo, 61, committing an act of necrophilia on Sunday, and detained him until officers arrived on the scene.
There was an “indication that a deceased patient had somehow been violated by an employee of the hospital,” said LAPD Lt. Andy Neiman.
“It’s a very sensitive case because you’re dealing with somebody who is deceased, who’s a loved one of somebody, who really couldn’t even fight back, so it’s our job to fight back for them.”
Lazo was arrested on a state Health and Safety Code violation, according to the LAPD. The Reseda man has since been freed on $20,000 bail, but the investigation is ongoing.
If convicted, he faces up to three years in prison.
According to a neighbor, Lazo is a quiet man with a wife and two kids.
