(NEWSER) – "Hey, wanna go see the body?" may seem like an odd thing to hear at most jobs, but for Bakersfield police trainee Lindy DeGeare, it didn't seem so unusual when her training officer, Aaron Stringer, reportedly asked her something along those lines after a local man had been killed during a police shootout, the Bakersfield Californian reports.
But what allegedly happened at Kern Medical Center shortly after that has led to an internal investigation of Stringer, who is accused of tickling the dead man's feet, moving his head around, and telling DeGeare he "loves playing with dead bodies," per police reports seen by the Californian. Bakersfield Police Chief Greg Williamson says the allegations are "disturbing," and Stringer has been placed on paid administrative leave during the investigation.
