What happened to Karen Greenlee, the unrepentant necrophile?

Does anyone know what came of Karen Greenlee?

Such would have been the title of this thread if I wrote it in Great Questions. But since I have just come accross her I thought I'd share the page I just read here. Even so if anyone does know what happeend to her I would like to know.

Quote:
Karen Greenlee is a necrophiliac. Five years ago she made national headlines when she drove off in a hearse and wasn't heard from for two days. Instead of delivering the body to the cemetery she decided to spend some time alone with the corpse. Eventually, the police found her in the next county, overdosed on codeine Tylenol. She was charged with illegally driving a hearse and interfering with the burial (there is no law in California against necrophilia). In the casket with the body Karen left a four-and-a-half page letter confessing to amorous episodes with between twenty to forty dead men. The letter was filled with remorse over her sexual desires: "Why do I do it? Why? Why? Fear of love, relationships. No romance ever hurt like this ... It's the pits. I'm a morgue rat. This is my rathole, perhaps my grave."

The letter proved to be her downfall. For stealing the body and the hearse, she got eleven days in jail, a $255 fine, and was placed on two years probation with medical treatment recommended. Meanwhile, the mother of the dead man sued, claiming the incident scarred her psyche. She asked for $1 million, but settled for $117, 000 in general and punitive damages.

The press had a field day, the lawyers got rich, and Karen lost her career and source of sexual satisfaction. Karen is now more comfortable with her sexuality. "When I wrote that letter I was still listening to society. Everyone said necrophilia was wrong, so I must be doing something wrong. But the more people tried to convince me I was crazy, the more sure of my desires I became."

The following interview was held in Karen's apartment, a small studio filled with books, necrophilic drawings and satanic adornments.
The interview is fascinating, especially for her attitude. You can find it ici.

If she invites you to stop by for a cold one, my advice is to say you have a previous engagement.

Okay, so, how much Cialis does it take for a dead guy to get it up?

Can't you see the ads with the his 'n' her coffins instead of bathtubs? Sweet!

Even if I wasn't a necrophile, I like mortuary work. I enjoy embalming and everything. Except for obese people. The bodies I hated working on most were Obese people.
That's pretty damn bigoted for a necrophiliac!

SPOILER:
she got tired of flogging a dead horse

Some comedian once said the bizarre thing about necrophilia is that enough people do it that we had to come up with a word for it.

The good thing is you never have to bring flowers...they're usually already there.

Since we're telling necro jokes...

One guy asked his necro friend if he was still seeing that 85-year-old. His friend said nope, the rotten bitch split on him.

"When you're on top of a body it tends to purge blood out of its mouth"

And that's where I stopped reading the interview.

Two necrophiles were passing a mortuary after work. One says, 'Wanna stop in for a stiff one?'

Two necrophiles were passing the morgue one sweltering day. One says, 'Wanna stop in for a cool one?'

I've heard the appeal to Necophiliacs is that they don't have to deal with issues of rejection or criticism- a dead body isn't gonna say "dont touch" or "you complain way too much". They can indulge in feelings of lust without feeling fear/guilt/anxiety over how the other individual will judge them.

A woman being a necrophiliac is unusual, and I wouldn't be surprised if the taboo nature of it really amplified her feelings about what she was doing. She must've felt guilt, but a 'rush' to go along with it. Much like some kleptomaniacs, who steal not to get stuff, but for the rush of 'getting away with something'.

I predict that one day this thread will come back as a zombie thread. And will be the most appropriate zombie thread ever.

Years ago when I was still lurking, there was an RO thread bashing the two young men who exhumed a fresh grave because the recently deceased young lady was represented by an attractive obit photo. A few posters were upset by the disrespectful necro jokes in the thread and protested. One poster said something like "Actually, I think I know the family of this girl. She wasn't by any chance a composer, was she?"

Someone responded "Actually, quite the opposite."

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank that poster. For being awesome. (pardon the hijack)

I have no idea if that interview is real, but I remember when she drove off with the corpse. It made all the papers.

In addition to the blood-in-the-mouth comment, there's another quite unbelievable comment. But when you read about what serial killers often do to bodies, it doesn't seem to much of a stretch.

This story inspired a fictional story, which in turn inspired a movie, Kissed.

If she had mentioned that she SCUBA dives, Skydives and also "indulges in the occasional one night stand" would that lend a touch of credibility to her claims?
