This 57-year-old diabolical beast was arraigned Friday in Toledo Municipal Court on a charge of abuse of a corpse. The “white” savage shamelessly fondled a woman’s body at an area funeral home.
The charge against Lawrence J. Clement of 2411 Sunnydale Dr., Temperance, was filed Thursday.
Bond was set at $50,000.
Investigators contacted Clement and told him a warrant was out for his arrest. About 1 p.m. Thursday, he turned himself in at the Northwest District Station, 2330 W. Sylvania Ave.
According to law enforcers he had “sexual contact by means of touching the erogenous zone” of Brenda Shular-Cameron, 51, who died Sunday of multiple organ failure. According to documents filed in Toledo Municipal Court, the abuse occurred Sunday at the H.H. Birkenkamp Funeral Home, 3219 Tremainsville Rd.
Clement, who worked part time at H.H. Birkenkamp, has since been fired by the company, a spokesman said Wednesday.
It’s unclear what Clement’s duties were at the funeral home, but the family of the victim said they were told he worked there for seven years and was a greeter.
One of the oldest businesses in Toledo, H.H. Birkenkamp was founded in 1858 by Herman Henry Birkenkamp, and operated by four generations of the Birkenkamp family in Toledo before it was sold in 1989 to The Loewin Group Inc., Vancouver. Service Corp. International of Houston bought the company in 2006.
Nothing is sacred for creatures who classify themselves as “white”.
