An American woman has been jailed for 16 years after she cut the hair, breasts, and a toe from the corpse of her love rival.


As if things couldn’t get any more harrowing – Shaynna Lauren Sims commited the act of barbarism just minutes before a funeral home viewing for Tabatha Lynch who died of natural causes.

Tabatha’s sister-in-law, JulieAnn Nixon, said:

You didn’t hurt her. She went out of this world as pretty as she came into it.

Who you hurt was her mother, her brother, her kids who have been through so much, her nieces, her nephews, so many people that loved her, but you didn’t hurt her.

Sims was charged with unlawfully removing body parts from a deceased person, unauthorised dissection, disrupting a funeral, and concealing stolen property.
