Gregory Graf, the Man Accused of Killing his Stepdaughter, Jessica Padgett, Videotaped Himself having Sex with Her Corpse (Necrophilia)
OH DEAR GOD, Just when you though humanity could not sink any lower … HELL HAS A NEW FUTURE MEMBER.
53 year old Gregory Graff had previously been arrested and charged with murdering his step daughter, Jessica Padgett. The police stated that Graf shot Jessica Padgett to death in what appears to be a sexual assault. Just when you thought this crime could not get any worse, it did. According to Northampton County District Attorney John Morganelli, Gregory Graf videotaped himself having sex with his stepdaughter’s corpse. That is correct, this sick SOB killed 33 year old Jessica Padgett, a mother of three, so that he could have sex with her corpse. What is going on in this world? Jessica Padgett had been missing since November 21 when she was last seen her job at the Duck Duck Goose Child Care center. Her body was found on the property of Gregory Graf.
They walk among us.
Since Graf has such a perverse fascination with death, I think we should send him there.
The man accused of killing his stepdaughter, Jessica Padgett, videotaped himself having sex with her corpse, Northampton County District Attorney John Morganelli said Friday.
He said the video confirmed what Gregory R. Graf told investigators on the day he was charged with homicide last month: that he wanted to have sex with Padgett, and that he did so after she was dead.
Morganelli said he had concluded Graf killed Padgett in order to have sex with her body.
According to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, the standard classification of mental disorders used by mental health professionals in the United States, the criteria for necrophilia are the presence, over a period of at least six months, of recurrent and intense urges and sexually arousing fantasies involving corpses that are either acted upon or have been markedly distressing.
The condition is not curable, Berlin said, but can be managed with a combination of sexual appetite suppressing medication and therapy.
Morganelli disclosed on Friday that Graf allegedly made a video of himself engaged in several sex acts with Padgett’s body, saying it was clear from the images that she was dead.
