Lorena Bobbitt Chops Off Husbands Penis! The 'TOP' Pop Culture Story of a Decade Remembered!! (1993)! Where are they now? (Gross-Out Photo Warning)


Lizzie Borden (1860-1927)
"Lizzie Borden took an axe and gave her mother
40 whacks. When she saw what she had done, she 
gave her father 41."

Lizzie Borden was and is a folklore character who was tried and acquitted of her Father's and Stepmother's axe murders occurring on August 4, 1892, in New England.

There is still question as to whether or not Lizzie actually killed her parents. Whatever the truth is, given the nature of the murders, they were clearly 'crimes of passion' and/or temporary insanity.

99 years later,  new folklore characters were created when Lorena Bobbitt chopped off John Bobbitt's penis in the heat of passion after he raped her in a drunken state of passion.
Here's the Story:

This story content and some of the images presented here may not be suitable for everyone. 

Lorena Bobbitt (1993)
John Wayne Bobbitt and Lorena Gallo, an immigrant from Ecuador were married on June 18, 1989.

Their marriage has been characterized as "not stable" from the beginning with incidents of domestic abuse reported. 

On the evening of June 23, 1993, John returned to the couples apartment in a drunken state and wanted 'sex'. When Lorena resisted, John raped her and fell asleep. 

Lorena then went to the kitchen, found a carving knife, returned to the bedroom a severed John's penis from his body.  

John Bobbitt
She wrapped the penis in a paper towel and left the apartment in a somewhat hysterical state. After she had driven a short distance, she rolled down the window of her car and threw the penis into a field.

Coming to her senses a bit, and recognizing what she had done,  Lorena  called 911 for assistance for John. 

After an exhaustive search John's penis was found and subsequently reattached in a 9 and a half hour surgery.

Lorena was arrested and tried for her crime. The following photo was entered into evidence by the prosecution during the trial.

Lorena was found "Not Guilty" and John and Lorena divorced in 1995.

So where are 'The Bobbitts' now?

John Bobbitt Film
John went the sleaze route and made at least one porn film.  He has been married twice since his divorce from Lorena, had several brushes with the law and has been incarcerated on convictions of domestic abuse.  

Lorena has kept a lower profile. She has changed her name back to her maiden name of Gallo, is in a relationship and has a child. She has also established a domestic violence awareness organization assisting victims of spousal abuse.

The Lorena and John Bobbitt Story was an International 
sensation in it's era. The stuff of legendary folklore in the Lizzie Borden tradition. Fortunately, no one died in the Bobbitt matter.
The cultural impact of these events, however, stand alone as 'one of a kind' in the annals of modern history.
