Indianapolis man, high on meth, allegedly cut off his genitals and microwaved them
A 43-year old man from Indianapolis is in intensive care after he was seriously injured during what has been described by investigators as a ‘two-week binge on methamphetamine’. According to reports by local media, the victim – who has not been named as investigations continue – was found by neighbors ‘writhing on the ground in pain’ outside his property.
As neighbors approached the victim, they could see he was ‘clutching his groin, which seemed to be soaked in blood’. “I asked him what he’d done,” commented one neighbor who assisted the injured man. “He told me he’d hurt himself badly and asked me to call for help”.
Paramedics were soon on the scene and the 43-year old was rushed to a nearby hospital, where he remains in a critical condition as a result of severe blood loss. Investigators, unable to interview the victim due to his injuries, turned their attention to a 24-year old woman who had been living at his property and is believed to be his girlfriend.
According to the woman’s account, the pair had spent the past couple of weeks leading up to the accident “smoking crystal meth” at the man’s residence. The woman stated that on the day of the incident, her partner ‘smoked up the couple’s remaining supply of meth’ and began to ‘act really weird’. Investigators believe that his overconsumption of the drug had caused him to experience a psychotic event.
As the woman explained, her boyfriend became violent and threatened her with a knife, before running into the backyard of the property. She followed him outside and saw he had removed his clothes. “I was puzzled about what he was going to do next,” she told investigators. “I had no idea that he would cut off his privates.” The woman reports trying multiple times to intervene, but her partner allegedly threatened her with the knife on each occasion.
“Remarkably, he seemed quite calm as he began cutting,” she said. “I was the one screaming and begging him to stop.” However, her pleas fell on deaf ears, and the man finished his gory task. “As soon as he finished cutting he ran back inside into the kitchen,” she said.
It was then that the man, still under the influence of meth, allegedly placed his severed genitals inside the microwave and set the timer to five minutes. “I tried everything to get past him and switch it off, but he kept waving the knife at me,” said the man’s partner.
Paramedics say that the genitals were too damaged from the microwave to have any hope of being reattached. The authorities have removed the microwave from the property for safe destruction to avoid it being ever used to prepare food. “Needless to say, it would be very unhygienic for that to occur,” said one investigator.
In addition to a long recovery ahead, the 43-year old also faces drugs-related charges. “Given what has happened in this case, we believe there’s a slim chance of him abusing meth in future,” commented one investigator.
