newport beach - A 79-year-old man from California has known that he shot his urologist in 2013, twenty years after his urine tube was removed. Ten bullets fired the retired Stanwood Elkus to the doctor. The reason? Revenge. According to him, he was not inexcusable and became lifelong.
In 1992, Elkus, who often had to pee, was given the urine tube urologist, Ronald Gilbert's advice to be surgically removed. Two other doctors performed the surgery, but it did not work out well with Elkus. That writes LATimes.
He kept incontinence, reduced libido and erectile dysfunction. The frustrated Elkus became depressed and increasingly gave the doctor the guilt of all the misery in his life, until the break with his loved one.
When specialists told him later that a wrong diagnosis had been made at the time, he became even harder. His anger focused mainly on Ronald Gilbert, who had advised to remove the urethra.
In 2013, Elkus made an appointment with the urologist under a false name. With the loaded Glock 21 he had just bought, he went to Gilbert's practice in Newport Beach. When he came to eye with the doctor, he fired ten bullets on him. Gilbert, married and father of two children, died of his injuries.
Despite several attempts to be declared ineligible, the judge ruled that he was not driven by madness but by resentment.
Gilbert's family, who had great success in the treatment of sexual problems over the years, remains with a lot of sorrow. When relatives came across the process, Elkus turned out his hearing aid.
Only when the judge pronounced the verdict, the cool-blooded killer plugged in the sound again. Thus he could hear that he should spend the rest of his life behind bars.
