When a woman killed her abusive husband out of self-defense, she found out that ‘he’ was actually a woman wearing a prosthetic penis
Angelo Heddington and Elizabeth Rudavsky from Canada had a whirlwind romance, which was followed by a shotgun wedding after four months of dating, and then escalating domestic violence.
But when a battered 27-year-old Elizabeth stabbed Angelo, 30, after he attacked her in 2003, it was the paramedics who discovered a prosthetic penis under ‘his’ clothes on the way to the hospital.
Elizabeth says on the Investigation Discovery program, Fatal Vows, which premieres December 13: ‘I never saw nothin’. Things were dark.’
Throughout their seven-month relationship, Angela had never been ‘bare’ in the light with Elizabeth, and always insisted on having sex in the dark, according to a police report.
Angelo, born Angela, actually told his wife that a previous girlfriend had gotten angry and burned his genitals.
‘I never passed judgment,’ Elizabeth said.
According to the book Cruel and Unusual Idiots: Chronicles of Meanness and Stupidity, a former girlfriend of Angela told a reporter: ‘Ang had soft hands, but she spit like a guy. The whole time you were talking to her, she’d have her hands in her pockets, playing with herself like she was a guy.’
The couple met while Angela was living at a Glencoe-area farm while recuperating from a back injury and Elizabeth was traveling to farms to sell dog tags.
It wasn’t long before Angela started beating Elizabeth, who said during the investigation that she genuinely loved her husband.
Over seven months, Angela continued to hit Elizabeth, threatening her with guns and violating her with a metal pipe.
In the early stages, at the couple’s wedding announcement, Elizabeth recalls: ‘I had to explain to everyone how I could be so happy, getting married, when I had a black eye.
