Electrician jailed for castrating eight people and killing one he met on BDSM sites

An electrician in Germany, who castrated eight people and killed one in gory kitchen table operations after advertising on BDSM websites, has been jailed.

Horst B, 67, whose anonymity is protected under German law, carried out the illegal operations between July 2018 and March 2020.

He started advertising his services on BDSM websites when he found himself in debt after the death of his wife, the Munich regional courtroom heard during his trial, which began in October.

While he began by offering his clients beatings and electric shocks, he soon moved on to services which could make him a lot more money. Castrations, he told the court, were “in demand”.

B advertised himself online as a “professional, trained” doctor, which helped him to stand out in forums where others were offering so-called “treatments” with gardening shears.

But he told the court that in reality, he had looked up how to perform the operation online, according to 20 Minuten. He also watched two operations at a hospital.

On Tuesday, B was sentenced to eight years and six months in prison.
