A GHOUL obsessed with Satan has been charged over the desecration of two graves from which he allegedly human heads.
Uber driver Tristan Hearne, 40, from Melbourne, is also alleged to have buried some of the remains outside the flat he shares.
Hearne was arrested in March 2022 after police reportedly found a stolen human skull in his bedroom.
Police allege the human heads were snatched from mausoleums in two separate incidents at Footscray General Cemetery between January 27 and February 1, 2022.
Police officers confirmed Hearn had allegedly left several items at the sites, including candles, a crucifix and notes to Satan.
“At this stage there is nothing to suggest satanic rituals or links,” police told Daily Mail Australia on February 3, after petrified residents speculated the thefts were linked to satanic rituals.

Now, more details about Hearne have emerged, including his obsession for macabre photos and his extensive collection of Satanic and grisly tatoos.
Prior to his arrest in March, the driver posted images online showing skulls, vampires and zombies on his social media accounts including his Facebook page.
Various photos Hearne uploaded to the platform appear to have been taken from within a number of Melbourne cemeteries – including a series of images taken from Kew’s Boroondara General Cemetery in May 2020.
Another photo appears to show a person dressed-up as the Grim Reaper posing beside gravestones.
In another post, Hearne allegedly described a gravesite as: “Beautiful, enchanting and very special”.
According to Daily Mail Australia, Hearne’s fingers are branded with two distinct symbols: The Leviathan Cross – known commonly as the cross of Satan – and the Sigil of Lucifer.
On his left arm, Hearne dons an elaborate inking of American serial killer and sex offender John Wayne Gacy dressed as a killer clown.

Gacy was found to have raped, tortured, and murdered at least 33 young men and boys, and often performed as ‘Pogo the Clown’ or ‘Patches the Clown’ at children’s hospitals and fundraising events.
Hearne is charged with six offences 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.
Renowned criminologist Xanthe Mallett said at the time she was baffled as to why Hearne had desecrated and stolen the human remains.
“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,” she said.
