|Lizzie Borden (1860-1927)|
|Lorena Bobbitt (1993)|
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.
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?
