The most dangerous necrophiles are those who commit murder so they can have sex with the dead. Aggrawal defines these as "homicidal necrophiles" and provides serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer as an example. Aggrawal's article also describes these acts as "warm necrophilia" since the intercourse is attempted on fresh, newly dead bodies.
