A 40-year-old Uber driver with a disturbing obssession with Satanism has been charged for the desecration of graves from which he allegedly stole human heads.
According to The Sun, Tristan Hearne from Melbourne in Australia was arrested back in March after police discovered stolen body parts at a house where he was renting a room. A human skull was found in his bedroom while police found another one in the property’s garden.
Police claim the body parts were from mausoleums in two separate incidents at Footscray General Cemetery between January 27 and February 1, 2022. That’s not all: Hearne is said to have left behind several items at the sites, including notes to Satan, candles and a crucifix.

MAN CHARGED FOR STEALING HUMAN HEADS FROM GRAVES
Tristan Hearne’s Facebook page is also very telling and makes for rather disturbing viewing. Some of the pictures shared on the social media site show him posing inside several cemeteries in Melbourne. One shot shows what appears to be someone dressed-up as the Grim Reaper beside local tombstones. Another image shows a morbid injury resembling a cross,
Hearne also has tattoos, which are branded with a detailed portrait of American serial killer John Wayne Gacy dressed as a clown. Gacy tortured, raped and murdered dozens of young boys.
Criminologist Xanthe Mallett has questioned why Hearne desecrated and stole the human remains, saying in part: “I haven’t seen a precedent where graves have been robbed for anything other than past times – grave robbing used to be when bodies were being taken and provided for anatomical reasons – but we’re talking hundreds of years ago”
Hearne faces several charges, including two counts of removing body parts from the corpse of a human being, exhuming or removing human remains from place of interment and criminal damage. If convicted, he could spend a minimum of five years behind bars.
