Ava Estelle, 81, was so ticked off when two thugs raped her 18-year-old
granddaughter that she tracked the unsuspecting ex-cons down ... and shot off
their testicles. The old lady spent a week hunting them down and when she
found them, she took revenge on them in her own special way, said Melbourne
Police investigator, Evan Delp. Then she took a taxi to the nearest police
station, laid the gun on the sergeant's desk and told him as calm as could be:
bastards will never rape anybody again, by God."
Cops say convicted rapist and robber Davis Furth, 33, lost both his penis and
his testicles, when outraged Ava opened fire with a 9-mm pistol in the hotel
room, where he and former prison cell mate Stanley Thomas, 29, were holed up.
avenger also blew Thomas' testicles to kingdom come, but doctors managed to
save his mangled penis, police said. Thomas, didn't lose his manhood, but
the doctor I talked to said he won't be using it the way he used to, Detective
Delp told reporters. Both men are still in pretty bad shape, but I think
they're just happy to be alive after what they've been through.
The Rambo granny
swung into action on 21st August after her granddaughter, Debbie, was
car-jacked and raped in broad daylight by two knife-wielding creeps in a
section of town bordering on skid row. "When I saw the look on
Debbie's face that night in hospital, I decided I was going to go out and get
those bastards myself -- 'cause I figured the law would go easy on them,
recalled the retired library worker.
scared of them either, because I had my gun and I've been shooting all my
life. And I wasn't dumb enough to turn it in when the law changed about
So, using a police
artist's sketch of the suspects and Debbie's description of the sickos,
tough-as-nails Ava spent seven days prowling the wino-infested neighbourhood
where the crime took place till she spotted the ill-fated rapists entering
their flophouse hotel
I knew it was them
the minute I saw 'em, but I shot a picture of 'em anyway and took it back to
Debbie and she said sure as hell, it was them, the oldster recalled
So I went back to
that hotel and found their room and knocked on the door and the minute the big
one opened the door, I shot 'im right square between the legs, right where it
would really hurt most, you know.
Then I went in and
shot the other one as he backed up pleading to me to spare him. Then I
went down to the police station and turned myself in.
Now, baffled lawmen
are trying to figure out exactly how to deal with the vigilante granny.
What she did was wrong, and she broke the law, but it is difficult to throw an
81-year-old woman in prison, Det. Delp said -- especially when 3 million
people in the city want to nominate her for Mayor.
