Girl That Said She Was Medic To Do Autopsy Is Now A Cult Hit

Girl That Said She Was Medic To Do Autopsy Is Now A Cult Hit

A teenage Romanian girl who had a death fetish and managed to con a doctor into believing she was a medical student so that she could do an autopsy on a dead body has ended up with a cult following of her own.

And after landing herself a wealthy lover, Mihaela Zagrean, 23, has now snapped up a rare Spyhnx cat, named after the ancient Egyptian Sphynx that legend says was the Guardian to the realm of the dead.

Mihaela became infamous when she managed to get photographed with her hands inside the body of the dead man in the morgue in the city of Petrosani in south-western Romania. It caused a huge scandal that resulted in her being sued by the family of the man whose corpse they accused her of defiling.

But afterwards the smiling teenager who was nicknamed the corpse ripper by local media moved to the capital Bucharest, where she completely transformed her image and started chatting online with admirers. She changed her hair colour from blonde to dark brown, lost weight and had silicon implants added, and she also resorted to Botox and other surgical tricks, completing the process with tattoos and piercings.

Even her name changed, she is now called Michelle, and reinventing herself has proved extremely lucrative for the young woman, who ended up with a huge admirer of fans that paid a fortune to chat with her online.

She eventually married one, and has two children with him, boasting that her husband loves her so much he is prepared to give her everything she wants.

And that has now included the rare Sphynx cat, that cost over 1,000 GBP and gets to share her bed at night.

Regarded as the world’s most bizarre feline, the Sphynx cat is named after the ancient Great Sphinx of Giza, but actually was first seen in 1975 when a cat in the US gave birth to a hairless kitten that was sold to a local breeder who revived the Sphynx breed by expanding and strengthening the gene pool.
