According to reports Justin Foster took a plane from Atlanta to Chicago to attack his ex-girlfriend’s new boyfriend. He confronted the 26-year-old man on the street striking him in the head with a tire iron. He then carved initials into his leg before cutting off the man’s genitals
Leaving the man in a pool of his own blood, Foster threw the man’s penis over a fence, got back in a car, and drove to Chicago’s O’Hare International airport to board a flight.
The victim suffered permanent brain damage and is said to have survived after a passerby saw him on the street and called 911.
Foster’s legal team tried to set the bond for $250,000, but Judge Anjana Hansen insisted on the $1 million due to how gruesome the attack was. Foster was arrested in Tallahassee on Aug. 27 and extradited to Cook County
Foster’s defense attorney Jack Friedlander argued the case against his client was purely circumstantial and there was no physical evidence against him linking him to the crime. Friedlander also noted the victim may not be able to even identify Foster.
