Robert Martin Nowak Murder Trial Reveals Bizarre Sex Tortures Performed by ‘Castration Cult’
A murder trial in Michigan has revealed bizarre sexual tortures, including castrations, performed in the basement of a suburban Detroit home.
According to Reuters, 51-year-old Robert Martin Nowak is charged with murder and criminal sexual conduct in the 2001 killing of Troy Moross, age 26, whose body was found by a machine shop that Nowak called home.
Moross had been castrated.
But Larry Kaluzny, Nowak’s attorney, said he will introduce evidence proving that a castration cult operating out of a torture chamber in a Rochester Hills home was responsible for Moross’ death, not his client.
The cult members are believed to be devotees of ‘nullification’, or surgical emasculation for sexual pleasure.
The problem is, even Kaluzny does not deny that Nowak had sex with Moross. But the defense will attempt to show that one of the men in the cult murdered him. DNA taken from the victim’s fingernails does not match Nowak’s, Kaluzny says.
A police search of the Rochester Hills home turned up a cage, sex toys and photos of a man castrating various victims.
The prosecution presented evidence on Friday that it said proves that Nowak had sex with Moross after he was murdered.
The case has deeply affected the jurors who must decide on Nowak’s fate. After a little more than half an hour of opening statements by Assistant Oakland County Prosecutor Brett Chudler and Kaluzny, the 14 jurors needed a break. According to the Detroit Free Press, they appeared “pale, stricken and stone-faced” as they left the courtroom.
