Speaking of foreign bodies in bodily orifices…

Recently, I mentioned a case of fishing line inserted in a patient’s urethra that had to be removed by a urologist.

Now I’ve become aware of an even odder case, of a woman who managed to hide a loaded pistol in her vagina. She managed to go through a pat-down:

Move over, Bond girls.

A Ross County jail inmate hid a gun so well that not even the guards who did an extensive pat-down found it.

The Cleveland woman hid a loaded handgun inside her body and smuggled it all the way to her jail cell, where it accidentally fired when she was trying to hide it.

“While in the holding cell, she removed a .25-caliber semiautomatic from her vaginal cavity,” Chillicothe Police Capt. Tom Hewitt said yesterday.

Victoria Lundy, 41, hid the gun in the toilet-paper holder. It fell to the floor and discharged. The bullet lodged in the ceiling as guards scrambled to quickly recover the weapon, Hewitt said.


No further comment is necessary other than that it figures she’d have to have been from Cleveland. (I lived in Cleveland for eight years.)
