An Oklahoma woman has been arrested for allegedly desecrating a woman’s corpse at a Tulsa funeral home.
Police have arrested Shaynna Lauren Sims, also known as Shaynna Smith, after the family of the deceased woman complained to the funeral home manager that the woman’s body had been vandalized.
The deceased woman’s mother told officials that she discovered Sims near the corpse with her hands in the casket. As the mother walked towards her, Sims then removed her hands.
It was then that the family discovered what had happened to the corpse.
Officials later found hair on the floor near the woman’s casket. Her makeup had been smeared and a large cut had been made from her hairline to her nose.
Law enforcement officers discovered Sims at the deceased lady’s home with a box cutter, makeup, as well as a folding knife with the deceased woman’s hair on it.
Though no official motive has been announced, reports indicate that Sims is currently dating the deceased woman’s former boyfriend.
Sims is now facing a misdemeanor charge of illegal dissection of a human body.
She is being held on a $20,000 bond.
Sims has recently pleaded guilty to assault in a child neglect case on April 15. Her sentence was deferred.
