Former Toledo funeral home worker sentenced for having sex with a corpse

Larry Clement

A Temperance man convicted of having sex with a corpse at a West Toledo funeral home learned his punishment Tuesday.

57-year-old Lawrence Clement received the maximum term of one year in prison after pleading no contest last month to abuse of a corpse.

Clement was arrested back in March after another employee at H.H. Birkenkamp Funeral Home found him in a compromising position with the body of 51-year-old Brenda Shular Cameron. As charges were filed in the case, the victim's family spoke openly to media about the investigation and about their belief that the funeral home covered up the crime.
