Mortuary worker in hot water after he ends up with dead man’s sex doll: cops

A Nebraska mortuary employee lost his job and landed himself behind bars after returning to a dead man’s home for a tryst with a life-sized sex doll, according to the Sarpy County Sheriff’s Office. 

Ryan Smith, 41, was arrested and faces charges for attempted burglary, criminal trespassing and tampering with physical evidence. He was incarcerated at Sarpy County Jail but has since posted $500 bail, his public defender Thomas Strigenz told Fox News Digital. 

Smith was one of two employees from Mid America First Call, a company with which the sheriff’s office contracts to retrieve and process dead bodies, to respond to a 51-year-old man’s “natural death” near 144th Street and Giles Road in the town of Chalco on October 6.

Justin Dalton, owner of Mid America First, told Fox News that Smith was “not on the clock” when he returned to the apartment and that he was “immediately terminated following his arrest.”

Boldt told Fox News Digital that Smith’s arrest was not typical fare for investigators in the rural Nebraska county. 

“I understand the public’s interest in it – it’s such an odd story,” she said on Wednesday. 

Strigenz said that Smith will next appear in Sarpy County Court on December 4.
