The Case of the Stolen Testicle
In Kansas, a testicle is worth $25,000. That’s the price one man paid after his testicle was stolen in a bizarre attack. The man, whose name has not been released, was attacked by two men who beat him and then took one of his testicles. The man was taken to a hospital where surgeons were able to reattach his testicle.
The victim’s story
In May 2009, a 52-year-old man from Kansas had his right testicle surgically removed after it was bitten by his neighbor’s dog. The man, who wishes to remain anonymous, said the attack happened without warning as he was grilling in his backyard.
“I didn’t even see the dog coming,” he said. “It just kinda came out of nowhere and chomped down on my testicle. It hurt like hell.”
The man was taken to the hospital, where doctors advised him that the best course of action would be to have the testicle removed.
“They told me that if I didn’t have it removed, there was a chance that the infection could spread and I could die,” he said. “So I had to make a decision: life or death.”
The man chose life, and his testicle was surgically removed. He has since returned home and is recovering from the surgery.
However, the ordeal is not over for him yet. The return of his testicle has been delayed due to scheduling conflicts with the hospital, and he is growing impatient.
“I just want my testicle back so I can get on with my life,” he said. “I’m not sure what I’m going to do with it once I have it back, but I know I need it.”
There are three primary suspects in the case of the stolen testicle: the victim’s roommate, a fellow partygoer, and a local Kansas City man.
The victim’s roommate is the most likely suspect. He had recently been kicked out of the house and was angry at the victim. He also had a history of stealing things from his roommates.
The fellow partygoer is another possible suspect. He was seen arguing with the victim at the party and was seen leaving the party with the victim’s testicle in his pocket.
The local Kansas City man is a third possible suspect. He has a criminal record and has been known to steal body parts for medical purposes.
On March 25, 2003, a 13-year-old boy in Kansas City, Kansas had his right testicle removed without his consent. The testicle was then sold to a local body parts broker for $50. The story made national headline news and sparked an investigation by the Kansas Attorney General’s office into the illegal trafficking of human body parts.
The investigation revealed that the testicle had been stolen from a medical laboratory where it was being stored for research purposes. The broker who purchased the testicle then sold it to a local doctor who implanted it into a man who had lost his own testicle due to cancer. The implantation was successful and the patient reported no complications.
Despite the success of the procedure, the sale of the stolen testicle was illegal and both the broker and the doctor were charged with felonies. The case highlights the need for regulation in the body parts industry and raises questions about how much a human body part is worth.
The trial of Salt Lake City man, Martin B. Hamilton, began on Monday in Kansas. The charges against Hamilton are trespassing, disorderly conduct, and public urination.
In May 2014, a 52-year-old Kansas man named Ron Lee Haskell drove to his former in-laws’ house in suburban Houston and shot six people to death, including two kids. He was sentenced to death in April 2018.Prosecutors argued that Haskell deserved the death penalty because of the brutality of the killings and the fact that children were among the victims.
During the sentencing phase of Haskell’s trial, the prosecution presented evidence that Haskell had castrated himself while in jail, presumably in an effort to prevent himself from being given the death penalty. prosecutors argued that this evidence showed that Haskell was willing to go to extreme lengths to avoid being put to death, and therefore he deserved to be put to death.
The defense did not dispute that Haskell had castrated himself, but argued that this evidence should not be used against him because it was irrelevant to his guilt or innocence. The jury ultimately sided with the prosecution and sentenced Haskell to death.
Haskell appealed his sentence, arguing among other things that the presentation of evidence about his self-castration was improper and prejudicial. The court rejected this argument, noting that “the defendant’s self-mutilation was plainly relevant to rebutting any suggestion that he would not be a future danger.”
In 2014, a Kansas man was awarded $270,001 in damages after a jury found that his doctor had negligently removed one of his testicles during surgery. The man, who was not identified in court documents, had gone to the doctor for treatment of an undescended testicle.
During the surgery, the doctor mistakenly removed the man’s healthy left testicle instead of his right, non-descended testicle. The man sued the doctor and the hospital for negligence and battery, claiming that the removal of his healthy testicle had caused him physical and emotional pain and suffering.
The jury found that the doctor was negligent in removing the wrong testicle and awarded the man $220,000 in damages. The jury also found that the hospital was liable for $50,001 in damages because it had failed to properly supervise the doctor.
In Kansas, the worth of a testicle is $400,000,000. This is due to the state’s recent passing of a law that makes it illegal to remove a testicle from a live animal without the animal’s consent. The law was put in place after a cattle rancher had his cattle’s testicles removed without their consent and then sold them to a local meatpacking plant.
The victim’s reaction
After the incident, the victim was taken to the hospital where he had surgery to remove his left testicle. The surgeons were unable to save his right testicle. The victim was released from the hospital the following day.
The victim, who wishes to remain anonymous, spoke to reporters about the incident. He said that he does not plan on pressing charges against his attacker. “I just want to put this behind me and move on with my life,” he said.
The victim’s attacker has not been identified.
The suspects’ reactions
The two men were charged with aggravated battery and reckless endangerment. Mr. Blumhardt was also charged with aggravated criminal sodomy, a felony that covers oral and anal sex with a child under the age of 14. The men could face up to 34 years in prison if convicted of all charges, said Sheryl Lidtke, a spokeswoman for the district attorney.
The defendants are being held in the Sedgwick County Jail in Wichita on $500,000 bond each. Their next court appearance is scheduled for May 9.
According to an affidavit released Monday by the district attorney’s office, Mr
