Drugged Out Chef Had Fun Time With Corpse

Giving evidence at his Old Bailey trial, Dixie said he felt "worse for wear" after a drug and alcohol binge and did not immediately realise she was dead.
"I took full advantage of someone and I shouldn't have," he told the jury. "I thought she had passed out through drink or fallen over."
He told defence barrister Anthony Glass that he had not noticed the pool of blood around the 18-year-old's body.
Dixie said he had just been on a four-day drugs and alcohol binge during which he took cocaine and cannabis and drank wine, beer and whisky.
He described himself as the "life and soul of the party" with a large appetite for drugs.
"I am like a vacuum cleaner when it comes to cocaine. I always need more," he said.
After realising that Bowman was dead, Dixie said he panicked and ran to his flat. He smoked cannabis to try to calm down, slept for a few hours and went out drinking.
Bowman, who was working as a hairdresser and part-time model at the time of her death, was stabbed outside her Croydon home in September 2005.
Earlier in the trial, prosecutor Brian Altman said Dixie murdered her for his own sexual gratification and then concocted a "ludicrous" defence "borne out of desperation".
Dixie denies murder. The trial continues.
I think Dixie is telling the truth. With all the junk he's been taking, it's not really a surprise that he didn't notice that he was sexing a corpse. So kids, say no to drugs or you might end up copulating with a dead body.
