Here is a bizarre story out of Oklahoma that Law Enforcement Today brought you, about drugs, cannibalism and castration
WISTER, OK – Two men in Oklahoma have been arrested for their part in a voluntary castration. The men allegedly wanted to commit cannibalism.
The LeFlore County Sheriff’s Office in Oklahoma responded to the McAlester Regional Hospital and met with Kai Aster after he had been admitted to the hospital after a failed castration. Aster informed medical personnel that he had his testicles removed, voluntarily, by two men that he discovered online.
Aster told police and the medical staff that he had intended to be castrated and first came into contact with Bob Allen and Thomas Gates through a website called the Eunuchmaker.
Aster stated that he and Allen spoke for a few days over Skype about castration and was told that he had been doing castrations for roughly 15 years.
In what should have been a warning sign, Allen told him that he kept videos of the procedure for his own personal use and that if he decided to go through with the castration, that there would be no cost. Aster thought he found a deal and decided to fly to meet with Allen.
