MEMPHIS – Cameron Wright, 23, was caught having sex with a female corpse at St. Francis Hospital in Memphis on Thursday.

Witnesses say Wright was having sex with a female corpse in a body storage room, according to the Memphis Commercial Appeal.

Wright admitted to having intercourse with the dead woman when he was taken to Memphis Police headquarters.

He’s being held on a $3,000 bond for abuse of corpse, according to the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office.

The Memphis Commercial Appeal published the following statement from St. Francis Hospital officials:

"Treating those we serve with dignity and respect is our top priority. The behavior of this individual does not represent what our hospital stands for, and these actions are completely unacceptable. We are saddened by this incident, and we are empathetic and sympathetic to the family of the patient. We contract with U.S. Security Associates for our hospital’s security services, and all officers are required to undergo thorough background checks. The security guard involved in this situation has been terminated."

Wright is set to appear in court Friday.
