New York | An employee of the famous Madame Tussauds wax museum was arrested this morning, for allegedly having sex with several sculptures from the establishment’s collection, including one representing President Obama.
57-year old Robert Murphy, who works as a janitor for the institution, is accused of engaging in sexual intercourse with at least 17 wax models since June 2016.
The museum’s staff had noticed that many figures had been damaged over the last few months. After checking out the footage from the various security cameras, they saw some very disturbing scenes.
According to NYPD spokesman, Lieutenant David Robinson, the accused had sex with wax figures of numerous celebrities, including Ronald Reagan, Gandhi, Albert Einstein, King Kong and even E.T.
“The man kept drilling holes in the various sculptures’ abdomen before engaging in sexual intercourse with them,” Lt Robinson told reporters. “This is certainly one of the strangest and most disturbing crimes I have ever seen!”
Mr Murphy now faces several charges of criminal mischief, criminal tampering and indecent exposure, punishable by a maximum of 54 years in prison.
The 57-year old has a history of mental health problems and has been committed on multiple occasions to psychiatric hospitals.
His attorney claims Robert Murphy was suffering from a psychosis when he committed his various deeds, and had completely lost contact with reality.
The prosecution accepted the defense’s request, and accepted that the accused undergo a complete psychiatric evaluation to determine if he is mentally fit to stand trial.
