Limpopo – Solomon Tshifani was initially arrested for stealing a bicycle from AVBOB Funeral Service. But during the investigation, Polokwane police uncovered something else. The 26-year old had se.x with a deceased woman at the funeral home.
The burglary was reported on Monday morning, and investigators believed the se.x act occurred sometime between 7 pm Saturday and 7 am Monday. Video evidence put the homeless Solomon inside the home on Sunday night.
Officer Mulalo said that he could not remember the last time there was a necrophilia case in Polokwane, noting that it was “extremely rare.”
The name of the deceased woman has not been released, though her family was contacted and made aware of the situation as well as the ongoing investigation. Beyond that, the funeral home declined to discuss the incident any further.
“We hold our families dear,” funeral director said. “We look for the best protection and security for the families we have served in this community for years.”
When asked why he did such an unthinkable act, Solomon had the guts to say ‘she was my crush’…
Solomon is being held on R1, 000 bail. The bicycle he allegedly stole was found at the abandoned house where Solomon was arrested. If he is convicted of the necrophilia charge (having se.x with corpses), Solomon could be sentenced to between 1 and 10 years in prison.
