Teenager sentenced to prison for breaking into tomb
June 29, 2006

ST. JOHNSBURY, Vt. --A Morrisville teenager has been sentenced to prison for opening a tomb and cutting the head off a corpse.

Nickolas Buckalew, 18, sentenced to between 1 and 7 years Wednesday, was given credit for the 14 months he was held in prison awaiting trial. He has been sent to a psychiatric facility in Cuttingsville for further treatment.

Buckalew agreed to plead guilty to two felony counts: intentionally removing or injuring a tombstone, and intentionally disinterring and carrying away the remains of a human body.

He was sentenced at Vermont District Court in St. Johnsbury because a utility problem shut down the courthouse in Hyde Park.

Authorities said Buckalew went to a cemetery in Morrisville on April 8, 2005, and opened an above-ground tomb. He removed the casket lid and used a hacksaw to cut the head off a corpse. He also stole eyeglasses and a bow tie from the casket. The head was placed in a plastic bag, which he used to take it home.

Witnesses said Buckalew told them he intended to bleach the skull and use it as a bong to smoke marijuana, according to an affidavit by Morristown Patrolman Ryan Bjerke.

The witnesses went to the tomb to find out whether Buckalew was telling the truth. They found it had been opened and there was a headless body inside before reporting the incident to police.

The skull and other items were discovered after Buckalew's home was searched by police.

Buckalew is being transferred to Spring Lake Ranch in Cuttingsville, which is a residential program for psychiatric treatment. A psychiatrist testified that Buckalew suffered from bipolar disorder.

Buckalew said in court that he wanted to get help.

"It was a horrendous thing that I did. What I did was appalling," he said. "I didn't think of the victim. ... I want to get help for my mental problems."

what is there to say? This guy is obviously disturbed, and while he hasn't harmed anyone yet, he may certainly do so in the future. Many psychotic serial killers stat this way, mutilating corpses or small animals until they finally decide to move on to live people. Good thing that they catched him so soon to keep him under observation. If what he said in court was sincere it may just have been a rather ghoulish teenage act, and he can well be recovered still.

This is rather sad really - if he really had to go to these lengths to get some sort of help.
He must have been acting stragnely before doing this - surely someone would have noticed ?

@ animal - I like your heading for this subject - only on MS would you get away with something like that

This will haunt my dreams for a long time. Surely he could have acquired a smoking device for pot.....instead of beheading a corpse?

yes, but a plastic bottle with a whole burned in it wouldn't be as cool as a human skull.

pretty funny though. he told people about it and you know how some people do stupid things for acceptance from their peers. he probably joked about it with friends and then went through with it without realising they weren't serious. this is similar to that episode of the simpsons but bart didn't have any mildly amusing purpose for the head.

oh, and that was a statue

I think it's safe to say that the kid is pretty fucked-up in the head. Now, I can understand people wanting to use a human skull in decorating a room, but this is unreal. Bleaching a skull in order to use it as a pot-smoking device? Why couldn't the kid use money, go to an underground dealer, and buy a bong or something? Perhaps the kid didn't have any money. However, couldn't he have used instructions off the internets to make a bong out of household products? In conclusion, this is not a story you hear on the news every day.

bongs aren't complicated things. you can make one by burning a small hole in the side of a plastic bottle and putting whatever you want inside the bottle and a joint in the hole you burned (you can light the joint and burn the hole through with that unless you rolled it like a moron). i haven't done this, for the record.

@ins: why is having a skull for a household ornament worse than using it for a bong. either way, the reason for having it would be for ornamental purposes and perhaps kudos from your peers.

I wasn't saying that using it as an ornament was worse than using it as a bong. What I was saying was that people having it for ornamental purposes would be ok, but using it as a bong would be stupid.

woops. i meant that the other way round. why is using it for a bong worse?

i would say both are the same. choosing to use a human skull for a bong when other objects could be used would be for ornamental value.

I work in a cemetery so I guess my opinion on this incident is a bit biased : whoever goes around either digging up people or vandalizing is an absolute moron of the worse kind.

This individual is a complete idiot and deserves his sentence. He can say all he wants that he did ''a very bad thing'' but the thing is that this guy was stupid enough to actually do it, which goes to show that this dude is numbskull (ok, I guess that one was kind of easy )

At least he admits that he has a problem.

And I was actually expecting this article to relate the incident to metal somehow blah blah blah but then I realised I wasn't in the metal forum and the title would probably have mentioned the blamed band or the word 'metal'.

Damn that bitch is hardcore. @ Daru Jericho, I was also thinking it was somehow going to be related to metal, I was still surprised that it wasn't.

Pretty lame or what?well i guess these were nothing but stupid excuses he was trying to find..my guess is that he had smoked some weed with his friends,then a stupid bet came,like : ''if you chop a head from a corpse i give you .... bucks'' and the idiot tried to gain these money in order to buy some more weed... damn i m good...i should be part of the police force....:thankyou:
