Dr. Eric Hickey is always a favorite speaker at S.J. Sisters in Crime. Saturday his topic was necrophilia. Here are some interesting facts we learned.
It’s a fairly common crime though it is usually only reported as a sex crime.
Necrophilia killers are a different bunch.
Only 25% are true psychopaths.

Psychopaths don’t have attachments to people.
Necrophilia need to have attachments.
Sexual predators have different ways of relating to their victims.
Many serial killers are necrophiliacs.
Some of the descriptions of those who indulge in necrophilia were a bit too gross to put in this post.
Dr. Hickey also told us there is a war against children. We need to protect our children.
2/3 of all sex crimes are against children.
Most child molesters are married with kids.
He told us there are 7 or 8000 sex offenders in Fresno.
