Abstract

Reports about the latest investigation into the sexual assaults carried out by Jimmy Savile’s in a hospital in Leeds were invariably led by accounts from a small group of staff that Savile had engaged in indecent, sometimes sexual behaviour with human corpses. The allegations were based on statements that Savile made himself after the fact and were far less substantiated than other abuses carried out by Savile with actual living persons. But nevertheless the necrophilia quotes took centre stage.
