A registered sex offender who apparently was feeling an urge to offend again tried to remove his own testicles overnight.Tomorrow, when this appears with their regular online stories, I wonder if the SJ-R is going to allow comments. Probably not, so leave them here.
The 59-year-old man, who lives in the 1600 block of Seven Pines Road [in Springfield], was bleeding profusely when police arrived around 8:15 p.m., but he is expected to survive.
The man used a fillet knife to remove one testicle and flushed it down the toilet. The other testicle was nearly cut off.
The man then called a friend for help. He was rushed to the hospital after police and paramedics arrived.
Update: Full story here. And as I thought, no comments allowed.
