Just a guess... maybe that young man was a shift worker who was trying to sleep at a time when the wife decided to go out and mow the lawn.
Hence the reason why he was naked.

Abhorrent undertaker invited man into mortuary to have sex with corpse

A depraved undertaker referred to dead bodies as 'fit' and invited another man to the mortuary to have sex with a corpse.

Nigel Robinson-Wright, 42, posed for photos next to open coffins and naked corpses and offered to supply a man with crystal meth to facilitate sexual activity in the chapel of rest, Preston Crown Court heard.

Kim Whittlestone, prosecuting, told the court Robinson-Wright chatted to paedophiles, animal abusers and those with an interest in dead bodies using encrypted, military grade chatrooms. He egged on a man as he sexually abused a puppy and arranged to meet a paedophile who was offering up a toddler to be raped.

[A lawyer] told the court a number of digital devices were seized and some examined at the scene. "He was in possession of indecent images and there was evidence of him distributing images. Extreme pornography was discovered, involving torture and sexual abuse of children and animals. The defendant had been in contact with others via social media and had been organising the commission of sexual offences against children, dogs and dead bodies."

Robinson-Wright [was sentenced] to 17 years custody with an eight year extended licence period.

@maximus otter See this is why I could never be a copper. I haven't got the self-restraint especially with vile people like this. Is it true Max, that when you join the police you have to listen to the recording of the young girl being murdered by Brady and Hindley?

Apparently the FBI makes agents listen to the tape of the last murder by the Toolbox killers.

It is around on the web - I strongly recommend not going near it. I've only read the transcript and that'll do me.

My son has recently (last couple of years) joined a midlands police force. He has been quite open with us about the nature of the issues that he feels will be difficult for him to cope with — in particular, he is acutely aware that one day he will be required to deal with child abuse cases.

He has never mentioned hearing this recording. It sounds like an urban legend to me as I can see no benefit to anyone in listening to the recording of one particular horrible case from nearly 50 years ago.

The daily and weekly sh*t he has to cope with is enough "dose of reality" for anyone learning the job. He attended 3 sudden deaths in his first month of duty, and attended 2 unusually gruesome suicides in his first few months.

All credit to your son. Some days must be horrendous.

Regarding the recording and use of, yes, maybe it is urban myth, but as @Cochise points out with the case he mentions 'The audio cassette Bittaker and Norris created of themselves raping and torturing Ledford remains in the possession of the FBI Academy; this recording is now used to train and desensitize FBI agents to the raw reality of torture and murder''.

This Washington (state) incident is being treated as an attempted burglary, so I'm calling it a strange crime ...

An unidentified man in his underwear attempted to push his way into a home Sunday night. When the resident(s) successfully repulsed his attempted entry, police were called in. The suspect was seen entering a horse trailer parked nearby. He refused to come out of the horse trailer, which caught fire and burned. The suspect was found dead inside the burned-out trailer.
Burglary suspect dies in University Place horse trailer fire

A suspect in an attempted burglary in Fircrest was killed in a Sunday night fire in University Place.

At 7:39 p.m., Fircrest police were called to a burglary in progress after a homeowner called 911 to report that a man tried to push his way into their house and then ran into the woods south of the home ...

Officers from University Place police arrived to help and started searching the area for the man, who was reportedly in his underwear when he tried to burglarize the home.

A deputy then spotted the man breaking into a horse trailer in University Place. As they were waiting for backup to arrive, smoke was seen coming from inside the trailer.

Deputies called for the man to come out, but he stayed inside.

Firefighters from West Pierce Fire and Rescue arrived and put out the fire. The man was found dead inside the trailer. ...

An Arizona ex-cop who's developed a street drug habit and is suffering through a divorce developed a specialized crime niche by stealing from weddings. He cited his divorce as the rationale for targeting weddings.
Former Arizona sheriff’s deputy arrested for allegedly crashing weddings and stealing newlyweds’ gifts

A former sheriff’s deputy in Arizona allegedly crashed as many as 11 weddings and stole thousands of dollars worth of gifts from newly married couples, the Chandler Police Department said this week.

Landon Earl Rankin, 54, was arrested Thursday on suspicion of two counts of burglary in relations to thefts at two Phoenix-area weddings last month.

He is also facing several drug charges after police found amphetamine and fentanyl in his possession ...

Rankin would allegedly pose as a guest at weddings and steal boxes of wedding cards. The boxes at the Phoenix-area weddings both contained between $3,000 and $6,000.

During the investigation, police uncovered at least 11 recent incidents of similar wedding thefts in the East Valley region of Arizona that Rankin could be responsible for. ...

Rankin retired from the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office in 2015 after 21 years on the force.

He told police after he was arrested that he attended the weddings to hear the vows “because he was going through a divorce,” according to a probable-cause statement. ...

She's busted and charged, so I'm calling this strange crime ... A Georgia woman went ballistic while searching for condoms in a Walmart - assaulting employees, stripping, and urinating on the floor.

Police have arrested a woman they say stripped and urinated on the floor of a Fayetteville Walmart after going on a profanity-laced tirade through the store and hitting an employee ...

Police said April Barrow, 40, was searching for prophylactics on April 29 at around 6:30 a.m. when she started cursing at employees and throwing things at them. Witnesses then said she punched an employee. ...

“Witnesses reported to police that Barrow took her clothes off and urinated on the floor.” ...

Barrow was putting her clothes back on as police arrived.

Police chief and officer make reports of rape and defamation

The Public Prosecution Service (OM) is investigating the reports of two police officers. A police officer from Arnhem says she was raped at home by her boss. That chief, in turn, has filed a defamation, slander and stalking complaint.

According to Omroep Gelderland, the spokesperson of the Public Prosecution Service cannot comment on the substance of the case. The Gelderlander has seen the declaration of the agent. In it, the Arnhem resident says she had an affair for months with her 57-year-old boss, who worked in Apeldoorn.

The police chief speaks in the newspaper of "false accusations" and has filed a complaint against the woman. She was briefly arrested at the end of 2021, because she had misbehaved towards the boss after their affair. The woman acknowledges that in her statements.

The rape allegedly happened in November 2020, two months after their relationship was over. The East Netherlands police have been conducting an internal investigation for months. Both officers have been at home ever since.

This could go in WTF but it's a strange crime, and a disturbing one, in the 21st century (though as a species we seem to be returning to medieval times) – a Norwegian man has been apprehended after killing 'several' people with a bow and arrow. The word several fills me with woe.

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/oct/13/several-killed-bow-and-arrow-attack-norway

He's pleaded guilty but end up in a psychiatric hospital.

A man charged with killing five people and wounding four others in southern Norway when he attacked strangers with a bow and arrows and knives has pleaded guilty to murder and attempted murder.

Espen Andersen Brathen, 38, was reported by Norwegian news agency NTB to have said at the start of his trial at Buskerud District Court: “I admit criminal guilt for the entire charges.”

The five victims were fatally stabbed on October 13 2021. Brathen also faces 11 counts of attempted murder for allegedly shooting at people with a bow and arrows in Kongsberg, a former mining town with 26,000 residents. He is further accused of causing bodily harm, threatening behaviour, refusing to obey police orders and tossing knives at officers.

The attacks started inside a grocery shop, with Brathen arrested more than half-an-hour after he allegedly started firing arrows inside the premises and attacking people inside their homes.

What I find odd is the number of crimes where the police appear 'puzzled by the motive', but declare that the perpetrators have been 'on a drugs binge' previous to the crime.

To someone off their tits, the 'motive' can be anything from someone looking at them in a funny way to a particularly challenging attempt to capture a bluebottle. If your brain is scrambled, anything can be a 'motive'.

Serial shoe snatcher targets women on city streets


A serial shoe snatcher is stealing shoes off of women walking on the streets of New York City.

The NYPD says he has struck at least three times since the beginning of the year. The man takes one shoe and flees, according to cops.

iu


On Jan. 24 at about 9 a.m., the suspect followed a 24-year-old woman into a mixed commercial and residential building at 739 Utica Avenue in East Flatbush, Brooklyn, and removed her right shoe before taking off.

On Feb. 9 at about 11:05 a.m., the victim was going up the street staircase at the Grand Army subway station in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn when the man ripped the left Nike sneaker off the foot of the 24-year-old woman.

The suspect then ran into the train station, jumped the turnstile, and fled onto a train. The woman did not suffer any injuries.

How could I *not* have heard about this!

... There were all the times Trump touted chloroquine as a miracle drug, even tweeting on March 21 that it had a “real chance to be one of the biggest game changers in the history of medicine.” The press was predictably enthralled by the storyline: the president had become an infectious disease doctor or perhaps the rogue blogger and snake oil salesman played by Jude Law in Contagion. Some journalists pointed out that the substance is an active ingredient in fish-tank cleaners and a man in Arizona was duly poisoned after drinking it. His wife explained that she recognized the chemical name when Trump talked about in on television. Weeks later we would find out that she had murdered her husband, using the chloroquine story as a pretext. ...

This Pennsylvania teen was 15 or 16 when he attacked the home nurse attending his grandfather, stabbing her multiple times with a sword. So much for his youth and young adulthood ... He could be in his 50s by the time he gets out of prison.
DA: Blair Co. teen who pleaded guilty to stabbing home nurse with sword sentenced

According to the Blair County District Attorney's office, a Williamsburg teenager who pleaded guilty to stabbing a home healthcare nurse with a sword was sentenced Thursday afternoon. ...

Authorities say Michael Watson, now age 17, was charged as an adult with numerous felonies, including attempted homicide and aggravated assault, in April of 2020 after police say he stabbed a nurse who had been taking care of his grandfather.

Officials say Watson was sentenced to serve 18 to 36 years in prison, followed by 7 years of probation.

According to the arrest affidavit, the victim told police that Watson had followed her to her car where he reportedly "hit her, knocked her down, and then stabbed her several times with a very long weapon."

Court dockets show that Watson pleaded guilty to all the charges he faced last November. ...
