This man’s corpse was tickled by cop in morgue after they killed him.

GAWKER writes:  A California cop has been placed on paid leave after allegedly playing with a corpse’s feet, the New York Daily News reports.

The alleged incident took place as Villegas’ body lay on a gurney covered with a blood-soaked white sheet, the newspaper said.  The unarmed man was shot and killed after he led cops on high-speed chase.

Mark Geragos, the attorney representing the family of the man who was killed, told the Daily News that Bakersfield police officer Aaron Stringer pulled on the deceased Ramiro James Villegas’ toes while saying “tickle tickle,” manipulated the dead man’s head and told a trainee that he “loved” playing with dead bodies.
