Colorado man accused of removing a transgender woman's testicles

Colorado man accused of removing a transgender woman's testicles

A Denver man reportedly used a military doctor's kit, like the one seen here, to castrate a transgender woman inside of her apartment.

An affidavit from the Denver Police names 57-year-old James Lowell Pennington as the makeshift medical practitioner, as writers for the New York Post explain, who allegedly performed the 90-minute illegal procedure inside the unnamed patient's home sometime prior to May 18, when Pennington was arrested.

A man charged with using an Army surgical kit to remove the testicles of a transgender woman is an airline captain based at Chicago O'Hare, the I-Team has learned.

He has since been arrested and is being held without bond.

Documents say that the suspect 'used the scalpel and surgically disconnected and removed the victim's two testicles and then sutured the opening back up'.

The wife said that Pennington said to call 911 if something went wrong and something went very wrong.


The wife called 911 about three hours later when blood poured from the incision.

Paramedics responding to the call, at about 2 p.m. Wednesday called police.

The affidavit says the testicles could not have been reattached because of the lag between the procedure and the 911 call.

The victim's name, along with the victim's wife were redacted from the report.

The victim was taken to Medical Center of Aurora, where they told detectives she suffered from injuries that had the risk of "permanent disfigurement".

Pennington, a pilot for ExpressJet Airlines, was placed on administrative leave, according to Bobbie Battista, the director of corporate communications and media for the airline.
