A 63-year-old man was arrested last September after being accused of storing severed genitals of 21 women in his freezer.
Peter Frederiksen, originally from Denmark, has appeared in court facing charges of sexual assault, intimidation, domestic violence and contravention of the Medicines Control Act.
Police have recovered 21 packages containing alleged female genital parts which were neatly labelled in plastic bags as well as photos of female genital mutilation inside his home in South Africa.
A man accused of storing 21 severed vaginas in the freezer appears in court.
It is believed that Frederiksen kept the severed body parts as trophies.
Reportedly, Frederiksen documented every female genital he apparently stored including the name of the person he allegedly mutilated and the date it was removed.
Peter Frederiksen faces charges of sexual assault and violation of female genitals.
Based on reports, the gun shop owner used anaesthetic drugs and surgical equipment to mutilate his victims, who mostly lived in Lesotho, a small country surrounded by South Africa.
Allegedly, he kept the severed body parts as trophies.
Speaking to The Independent, the police said that Frederiksen “allegedly sedated his victims before performing illegal operations on them.”
The suspect allegedly used anaesthetic drugs and surgical equipment to mutilate his victims.
But the suspect asserts the allegations against him are “totally unfounded” stressing that his wife was the one in contact with witch doctors.
“It is my wife who uses the stuff and not me,” he told the Danish newspaper Ekstra Bladet.
He added: “I have never made any circumcision of any women here in South Africa. I have been allowed to take a lot of pictures in Lesotho in the mountains, where they circumcise women.”
His estranged wife Anna Matseliso Molise was supposed to serve as key witness to the case but was shot four times last month. Molise eventually died at the hospital.
The 28-year-old woman earlier told the police that he drugged her and cut off parts of her vagina.
Police are urging other victims to come forward and shed light to the case.
Female genital mutilation (FGM), a traditional practice prevalent in South Africa, is often done as a means of suppressing a woman’s sexual desire and preventing “immoral behavior”. To date, roughly 30 million African girls are at risk of FGM.
Scientist Refused Treatment After Being Bitten by Snake, Documented Everything Instead
Do you ever wonder how it’s like to die from a snakebite?
Do you ever wonder how it’s like to die from a snakebite? This is what a reptile expert tried to answer when he made a diary detailing the harrowing hours of his life after being bitten by a poisonous boomslang snake.
World-renowned American herpetologist Dr. Karl P. Schmidt was attempting to identify a 30-inch venomous snake at the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago in 1957 when the reptile attacked him. Believing that the poison dose wouldn’t be fatal,he decided to document the effects of the venom instead of seeking medical attention.
Schmidt’s scientific record of the agonizing 15 hours leading to his death chronicles the disturbing consequences of a boomslang snake’s deadly bite. ...
Man Dies After His Parasitic Worm Gets Cancer
An HIV-positive man died not because of his chronic illness, but because the parasitic worms he harbored in his gut contracted cancer.
Nature truly works in strange ways. An HIV-positive man died not because of his chronic illness, but because the parasitic worms he harbored in his gut contracted cancer.
The New England Journal of Medicine described the bizarre case as a 41-year old man diagnosed to be HIV-positive with extremely low CD4 count. Aside from the viral particles in his body, a fecalysis conducted on his sample yielded a positive result for Hymenolepis nana, a parasitic tapeworm. Further studies showed that tumors were in multiple sites in his body, so samples were taken and sent to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Atlanta. The patient was sent home with antiviral and antihelminthic drugs.
Scientists who tested the patient's samples were left dumbstruck because what they discovered were cancerous cells which were far too small to be of human origin. After running several tests to confirm the origin of the minute cancerous cells, the scientists discovered that the cells contained DNA from the parasite H. nana. ...
