A Muslim of Palestinian heritage, Kasim Khuram, 23, is facing a ‘substantial’ prison sentence after he admitted to having sex with a corpse after lifting the lids of ‘multiple coffins’ at the funeral parlor to find just the perfect body that he wanted to sexually penetrate.
Daily Mail (h/t Cleverson) Wearing a black hooded top and trousers and sporting a Palestinian flag tattoo on the left side of his neck, he stood with hands clutched in front of him as the charges were read.
Kasim Khuram, from Birmingham, pleaded guilty today to sexual penetration of a body at the Central England Co-operative Funeralcare home in Walsall Road, in the Great Barr area, on November 11.
Khuram, of Kenilworth Road, Aston, appeared in custody in Birmingham Crown Court flanked by a security officer, and gave the thumbs-up to supporters in the public gallery during a 10-minute hearing. The 23-year-old also admitted burglary of the funeral home, breaking into the building with the intention of stealing.
Baljinder Kaur, from the Central England Co-operative said: ‘Our primary concern is for the families we serve and the welfare of our funeral colleagues who have all been deeply affected by this incredibly disturbing and unprecedented event.
‘The security measures at Great Barr are such that the alarm alerted the police, who were thankfully able to apprehend the suspect at the scene.
