Three Iowa County men tried to dig up a woman's grave
NBC15 News ^ | 09/06/06 | NBC15

Posted on 09/05/2006 4:54:38 PM PDT by Obadiah

The men face charges of attempted misdemeanor theft and attempted third degree sexual assault. Investigators say the three men went to this cemetery in Cassville Saturday night to dig up the grave of Laura Tennessen.

The nursing assistant died in a motorcycle accident in Cassville, not far from where's she's buried. A criminal complaint against the men says an officer responded to the intersection of Wall and East Bluff Streets to investigate a suspicious vehicle.

The officer then questioned Alex Grunke, who was walking toward the vehicle, dressed in black and sweating, according to the complaint.

Police say they learned from Grunke that he and two others were at the cemetery to uncover Tennessen's body until a car prompted them to flee.

Officers arrived at the graveyard to find the top of the vault exposed. Also in the complaint, friend Dustin Radke admits to helping the brothers so Nicholas Grunke could have sex with the woman near the Grunke home in Ridgway.

The family's priest Father John Norder says, "We were up here last night, and I re-blessed the grave, had prayer service for them." Father Norder presided over Laura's funeral service last week. She rests next to her brother, who also died in a traffic crash, ten years ago.

Investigators do not believe the men knew Tennessen. Prosecutors say one of the suspects, Dustin Radke has a prior record. They're scheduled back in court for a preliminary hearing in ten days.

Okay, it's getting weird out there in Wisconsin. Apparently these guys got bored cow tipping and moved on. Really freaky.

A necrophiliac is bad enough, but he got a couple of buddies to help him. Better they got arrested doing this than a school massacre, I guess.

OK, somehow I can fathom the idea that there may be some people sick enough to actually want to dig up a dead woman to have sex with her. But how in the hell do you bring that up to a couple of your pals, who then agree to help?

Can you imagine?

"Dude, let's go dig up her body so that I can . . . ."
"Nah, let's go hunting instead. Here, put on these antlers."

Sick. I have to wonder if these guys had ANY idea what they were doing though...the woman in question had been dead a full week before they tried this, and had been in the ground for most of that time. I'll leave it to your imagination to figure out what would have happened when they cracked her coffin.

I hope the local news media plasters their names and pictures all over everywhere, and keeps doing it over and over. I hope this crap follows them for many years to come, and maybe get their heads busted periodically.

A week isn't long, not with today's embalming techniques.

Still, it's really sick and I hope these guys are put away for a long long time, hopefully in a prison insane wing, but any facility for the criminally insane will do.

There has got to be more to this than meets the eye. But if it's an alibi, what could be worse than what they admitted to doing? El disgusto.

Maybe the other two just thought he had something else in mind when he suggested they go down to the graveyard for a cold one.

Sorry.

Looking at those three, things become a bit clearer (if no less disgusting).

The young lady was quite beautiful. This had to be some part of a Satanic ritual or something. I've seen a lot of sick stuff (lived in New Orleans for two years, firefighter for a long time now, and have spent some time in Haiti), but this is about as sick as it gets.

Could be. Looking at the perps, I suspect they're more interested in doing each other than a dead (or live) woman.

I ran across a film on IFC about dead bodies at the LA morgue...a few hours after death things get a little ripe...a week after death and things are really nasty...this is a group of men whose elevators never leave the basement.

The guy Nicholas is really gothic. He has priors too - - SHOCKING!

Nah, these guys are classic mental ward material. I prefer to reserve the death penalty for those who kill people and molest children. When it comes right down to it, these guys just dug a hole over a grave. They should be punished, and severely, for putting the womans family through additional trauma, but this isn't a killing offense.

I have to agree.

The girl's family should, however, be permitted as much time as they wish to beat the crap out of them. No crowbars should be allowed but baseball bats should be optional.

I'm gonna pass on the Ping.

It totally PAINS me as to what f-ing FREAKS we have these days living in The Heartland. My son is 19. Do you think I even want to hear about the freaky things kids of his generation are even attempting to do? *SHUDDER*

You like to think you're immune to this stuff, but thanks to the WWW you can have ANY little mentally-ill piccadillo you happen to have catered to and encouraged. And you just KNOW these Wisconsin kids didn't learn about having sex with a corpse while they were sneaking smokes behind the barn! Outside influences. It HAS to be. We DON'T live this way here! *SHUDDER*

I, personally, can live without thinking too hard on this stuff, and I don't see it as my Civic Duty to bring it to the attention of others. *SHUDDER*

And if this were YOUR daughter (and I trust you will have offspring in the future; a smart, handsome, Conservative young man such as yourself) how could you ever rectify this in your own mind? Who wants memories of their child such as this seared into their brains? *SHUDDER*

Situations like these in REAL LIFE are the same reason I can't watch really violent movies, or hard-core porn. I mean, I DON'T want this sickness in my head for the rest of my life. I just don't.

/rant off

I have to disagree. Some things in this world are just simply too evil to even contemplate. The law has got nothing to do with it. If I were the governor, I would publicly announce a governors pardon to the people who ace these creeps.

Can you imagine what that girls parents and family have to be going through? She was tragically killed when she was 20. Imagine loosing a kid when they're only 20. And then on top of that a week later these worthless punks decide to pull this atrocity.

Prayers for the family.
