Pervert undertaker invited man to mortuary to have sex with corpse

An undertaker invited another man to the mortuary to have sex with a corpse and arranged to meet a paedophile to sexually abuse a child

Nigel Robinson-Wright, 42, chatted to paedophiles, animal abusers and those with an interest in dead bodies using encrypted, ‘military grade’ chatrooms, Preston Crown Court heard. Additionally, he encouraged a man as he sexually abused a puppy

He also offered to supply a man with crystal meth to facilitate sexual activity in the chapel of rest and posed for photos next to open coffins and naked corpses.

Police lifted the lid on Robinson-Wright’s sinister sexual world following the arrest of a paedophile in London in September 2021

Online chats between the two men led them to the funeral director and on November 1 2021, officers visited Robinson-Wright at his home in Chain Lane, Blackpool.

Kim Whittlestone, prosecuting, told the court a number of digital devices were seized and some examined at the scene. She said: “He was in possession of indecent images and there was evidence of him distributing images. Extreme pornography was discovered, involving torture and sexual abuse of children and animals.

Ms Whittlestone added: “The defendant had been in contact with others via social media and had been organising the commission of sexual offences against children, dogs and dead bodies”

One man, who seemed to be familiar to Robinson-Wright, shared sexual fantasies about the clients at the Preston funeral home where Robinson-Wright worked. “There was a strong theme of necrophilia where it was openly discussed between the parties”, Ms Whittlestone said.

The men discussed sexual activity in the funeral home, saying it was ‘horny when we f***ed by the lectern’. Robinson-Wright talked about being high on poppers and crystal meth, and offered to supply drugs to the man.

In a separate chat the defendant was in contact with a paedophile, arranging to meet him to sexually abuse a child. However the police intercepted the chat before the plan came to fruition, the court heard. In other conversations he discussed his fascination with Fred West.

Robinson-Wright gave no comment when he was interviewed by police but later pleaded guilty to:

  • Arranging the commission of a child sexual offence,

  • Three counts of making indecent images,

  • Eight counts of distributing indecent images,

  • Possession of a prohibited image of a child,

  • Possession of extreme pornography,

  • Two counts of intentionally encouraging or assisting the commission of an offence by inviting an unknown man to the mortuary

  • Encouraging a man to sexually abuse a dog,

  • Attempting to supply a class A drug.

Tom Lord, defending, asked for 16 other offences to be taken into consideration and said his client’s guilty plea was his best mitigation

When Robinson-Wright spoke to a probation officer he described himself as an animal lover who looked after rescue cats and ferrets and said those who mistreated animals were ‘vile’.

He claimed much of what was discussed was ‘fantasy’ – but the judge rejected his claims.

He sentenced Robinson-Wright to 17 years in prison with an eight year extended licence period.
