January 10, 1994

On This Date in TWISTED-HISTORY.com! IN 1994, Lorena Bobbitt went on trial in Manassas, VA for the malicious wounding of her husband, John Bobbitt. What did she do? During an argument about his philandering ways, she took a butcher knife and chopped his penis off. She didn’t stop there, but took the severed penis on a ride out to the country and threw it out the car window. To get the penis into the car, she claimed she was taking it to a farm where there would be bunnies and cake. She lied, there was no cake. Or bunnies. When she turned herself into the police, as her husband John had quickly reported her from the hospital emergency room, she was able to take the police to where she threw the penis away. The penis was found, lonely and sad out there in the countryside, and it was returned and re-attached to its loving owner. Mrs. Bobbitt was later acquitted by reason of temporary insanity.
