An electrician (66) has had to answer to a judge in Germany because he has castrated eight men on his kitchen table. The suspect says that he performed the procedures on request and for a fee.
According to Associated Press, the electrician has been charged with murdering one man and maiming several others by performing illegal operations on their genitals.
The 66-year-old explained to a judge in Munich on Thursday that he ran into financial difficulties after the death of his wife. By granting requests on SM websites, he wanted to get out of debt.
In order to earn money faster, he expanded his activities, reports the German news agency ‘DPA’. He lied to men by saying he was a medical expert and castrated them on his kitchen table. The defendant admits that he castrated or partially amputated eight men between July 2018 and March 2020.
One of the men died a few days after the medical procedure. The electrician denies that he is responsible. The man’s body was found in a box three weeks later by police.
