In a case that can best be described as “TOTAL MADNESS”, a black African-American man in Columbus, Georgia, USA who broke into a funeral service home and had anal sex with a female corpse has been jailed for 15 years.
Domonique Smith, 30, was originally arrested for a different crime of stealing a bicycle from the funeral home, but during the investigation of the bicycle theft, police linked Smith DNA on the sample found on the deceased woman, other evidence presented at the court includes a CCTV image that captured Smith going into the room where the body is kept twice and taking out the dead female underwear, which he stowed in his backpack.
To confirm smith is in the right frame of mind before putting him on trial for committing such a crazy act, a mental illness test was conducted, which involves three separate psychological evaluations ordered by the court but one result performed by a private psychotherapist came out positive that he is not mentally sound and was sent to West Georgia Central Regional Hospital for ‘restoration,’ which is treatment to reinstate his competency.
During the sentencing Smith did not deny the allegation and he was sentenced for the crime of one count of necrophilia and one count of second-degree burglary and he will serve at least 12 years in prison before finishing on probation.
Do you think the justice system hasn’t been fair on Smith or he deserves a bigger punishment considering his mental state? Please leave a comment below.
