“Dr.” Berlyn Aussieahshowna, 37, was arrested in Boise, Idaho, and charged with practicing medicine without a license after she convinced at least two women to let her fondle their breasts under the guise that she was performing a breast “exam.”
According to police investigators, Aussieahshowna is neither a doctor nor even Berlyn Aussieahshowna.
She is Kristina Ross, and is not even a biological female, although she was identified in a 2004 arrest as a male-to-female transsexual.
Authorities were puzzled why the two women were duped since both times, “Dr.” Aussieahshowna performed her “consultations,” including the exams, in bars.
When News of the Weird reported in 2004 on Disney fanatic George Reiger of Bethlehem, Pa., he was in full glory, with a 5,000-piece collection of Disney character and movie memorabilia and some 2,000 tattoos covering almost all of his body.
He said then that he had been married six times, but that each wife had left him, unable to compete with Disney for his affection.
In November, Reiger, now 56, opening up to The Philadelphia Inquirer, admitted that he had not been married at all and was in fact extremely lonely in his Disney obsession, but that he had finally found the love of a woman and wanted to end his fanaticism and remove the tattoos.
