Jimmy Savile Ravished The Dead: The 1990 Interview With The BBC’s Yorkshire Ripper

IN 1990, Sir Jimmy Savile talked  to Q Magazine of his sexual interst in fresh corpses .

Jimmy Savile Interview From 1990 Reveals Disgraced Star’s Apparent Fetish For The Dead


Bizarrely, he also said, without any prompting from the interviewer, that he was not a necrophiliac – a person with a sexual attraction to corpses.

But it’s not bizarre. It’s only intersting because since his death Savile’s been accsued of all manner of stuff, not least of all being the Yorkshire Ripper.

In 2012, the Mail was listening to the radio:

Savile sex scandal hits horrific new low as former colleague Paul Gambaccini claims on Radio Five Live that DJ was a ‘necrophiliac’





Now an NHS Report says he might have been:

A former nurse at ­Broadmoor said Savile told her about his appalling activities at the Yorkshire hospital, where he was a charity fundraiser and volunteer porter. He said he would “muck about” posing with dead bodies of men and women together before taking photographs.

The nurse added: “I was a little bit upset because I had no concept, in those days, of… while I’d heard of ­necrophilia… but I didn’t ­understand what it meant.” It is claimed former Top of the Pops frontman Savile told her he sexually assaulted the bodies as well, something he sickeningly dubbed “garamoosh”.

A former patient at Barnet General Hospital in North London said nurses told her in 1983 that Savile “liked to have sex with dead bodies”. The Jim’ll Fix It host also boasted about making jewellery from glass eyes that he removed from their bodies.

Can we check the claims? Any proof ?

Dr Sue Proctor, lead investigator at Leeds General Infirmary, says that security at the mortuary where ex-BBC DJ Jimmy Savile worked as a voluntary porter was “lax”. “Allegations about his behaviour in the mortuary are incredibly harrowing,” says Dr Proctor, detailing claims of alleged sex acts performed on dead bodies… Dr Proctor says that investigators have no way of verifying the claims about Savile’s actions in the mortuary but that controls on access were “not robust”.

And that’s it. It might be that we are more obessessed with the rotting Savile than he was with the dead.

You don’t need proof with Savile. You just need a rumour. The Mail  shows how this works as it attempts to create the world’s most complete Savile headline:

Savile was a revolting, deparaved man who hid in plain view. He was legitimised by the NHS, the BBC and Catholic Church, which made him a Papal knight, and the elite which dubbed him a secular knight of the realm. He knew things about Princess Diana, or so he alluded .

But that was then. Now in the rush to damn the dead man and bury his past, the narrative gets murkier and murkier. No
