After a man jumped on top of the dead body and wanted to have sex with it, a woman’s funeral turned into a surreal sex show.
Big Sipiliano, a 49-year-old man from Epworth, Zimbabwe, appeared with an accomplice at the funeral of Melisa Mazhindu a little after 1 a.m. on January 2, who later stopped family members from interfering in a ghoulish attack.
Reportedly, both of them were drunk.
Sipiliano entered the bedroom where Melisa Mazhindu’s body had been spread out and jumped onto the corpse of Melisa while his companion blocked the doorway and began pushing up and down in front of the stunned family of the deceased woman.
Popularly called as “Bigman,” Sipiliano reportedly told Phillipa, Melisa’s bereaved mother, that he had long tried to sleep with her 20-year-old daughter.
He told the mourners that he was in love with Melisa, and that he felt sad that she had died before they had sex.
“He said that even if she was dead, there would be nothing wrong with him fulfilling his desires,” Phillipa Mazhindu told reporters.
He went on to uncover the corpse lying in the bed, slept on top of it, and made up and down motions simulating sex while his friend prevented us from intervening,” she explained.”
Mrs. Mazhindu, 47, went on to say that she believed the strange attack might have a magical motive behind it.
She said: “How am I going to be able to live with this kind of trauma?” I believe these men had a ritual function because they found a dead rat, red fabric, and a plant root in his pockets when Bigman was searched by neighbors who came to my rescue.
The family of Melisa attempted in vain to pull him off and had to call some of the other mourners to help before “Bigman” could eventually be ejected from the funeral and his accomplice.
According to local media, Major Sipiliano and his accomplice were remanded in custody until 8 February on charges of indecent assault and defiling a dead body.
