What is wrong with people? This story you are NOT going to believe.

74 year old Gary Van Ryswyk of Sebring Florida, has been arrested and charged with practicing medicine without a license resulting in bodily injury, which is a second-degree felony.

Highlands County Deputies were called to Ryswyk’s home to find a severely bleeding, castrated man laying on a bed with a towel clinging to his groin.

In what appeared to be right out of a scary movie, Ryswyk had set up a room in his home to look like a surgical center, having medical equipment and painkillers inside, according to reports. He also had a camera set up to record his procedures.

Mr. Ryswyk admitted to deputies he had just performed a castration on the bleeding man, saying that he had encountered major problems. Ryswyk then told deputies that he and the victim had met on the dark web, on a site geared toward people with a “castration fetish”.

Further investigation at the location turned up two body parts in a pink container, which deputies assumed to be from the victim. The victim was flown to a nearby hospital and is said to be in stable condition.

Ryswyk had told the victim that he had experience on animals and had even removed one of his own testicles in 2012. He also claimed that he had performed a similar procedure on a another man a few years ago. But according to the Highlands County Sheriff’s Office, that also did not end well.

All I can say is this may be another one to file in the “Only in Florida” file… at least let’s hope so.
