Missouri Amish man says he castrated himselfAugust 30, 2013
WEBSTER COUNTY, Mo.— A Missouri Amish man says he castrated himself, but deputies aren't sure why or if he's telling the truth.
Deputies in Webster County found Jacob Schwartz lying in his bed and covered in blood.
We want to warn you, some of the details of this story are graphic.
On the morning on July 23, Deputy Adam Hughes found himself at a farmhouse in Seymour. Nothing could have prepared him for what he saw next.
