The 52-year old was arrested in the Croatian town of Slavonski Brod on suspicion of possessing human body organs.
Local police raided the suspects’ apartment where they found numerous human penises soaking in formaldehyde. The solution stopped the organs from rotting.
As a nurse, the suspect had easy access to the hospital morgue where police believe he severed the penises from deceased males and took them home.
Slavonski Brod is a mid-sized town of 59 000 and has been inhabited since prehistoric times.
Speaking to Queerty.com, hospital spokesman said, “On behalf of all employees of the hospital, I have to say that we are very unpleasantly surprised by an event that threw a shadow over this hospital. Our apologies to the families of the deceased.”
The man had no prior criminal record and was described by police as a “family man”. It remains unclear what the suspect intended to use the penises for. He is currently on bail pending his trial for disturbing the deceased. If he is found guilty, he could face up to two years in jail.
