HOUSTON, TX (WFLX) - A former funeral home director is under investigation for shocking photos of him with a corpse.

Police in Houston arrested James Patton and are charging him with abuse of a corpse. They say Patton took more than 20 pictures of himself posing with naked corpses, even engaging in sexual activity with dead women, while working at the funeral home.

The photos included a "a corpse with an exposed vagina" and "images of defendant's penis touching the corpse's body (specifically her feet)".

The company that owns the funeral home says Patton was immediately fired when they found out about the pictures.
