A self-proclaimed cannibal and his husband have been charged with castrating a 28-year-old 'volunteer' in an illegal gender reassignment 'surgery' performed on a wooden table in a remote Oklahoma cabin where they kept other victims' body parts in a freezer.
The two were caught when the 'surgery' went wrong, and the victim lost too much blood and had to be taken to the hospital. Bob Lee Allen, 53, and Thomas Evans Gates, 42, were charged with conspiracy to commit unlicensed surgery-felony, practicing medicine without a license/unlicensed surgery-felony, maiming, unlawful use of communication facility, distribution of CDS-including possession w/intent to distribute, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, failure to bury dead human member-misdemeanor, possession of controlled dangerous substance, unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia-misdemeanor.
They came into contact with the volunteer on Facebook. Allen had advertised that he performed the surgeries and that he videoed them for his own pleasure. Allen claimed to have six other people on their way to the cabin to undergo surgery.

Two Oklahoma men were arrested Oct.15 for allegedly performing an illegal castration on a Virginia man, police say.
LeFlore County authorities arrested 53-year-old Bob Lee Allen and 42-year-old Thomas Evans Gates after obtaining a search warrant to investigate the claims of an illegal surgery and finding “what appeared to be testicles” in a freezer at the suspects’ home, the Sacramento Bee reported. Allen later dropped the victim off at a local hospital, according to court documents.
“It is something that we have never in my career run across in this part of the country,” Le Flore County Sheriff Rodney Derryberry said Tuesday in a statement to reporters.
“We know there’s a lot of rumors out there but at this time there’s no danger to the public,” he said.
The 28-year-old victim claimed he met Allen on a website after searching for information about castrations. The victim said Allen claimed to have 15 years of experience and arranged a flight when Allen told him the surgery would be free, according to documents.
