Thanks to the new docuseries Lorena, the infamous Bobbitt trial is back in the headlines, more than 25 years after Lorena Bobbitt cut off a particular part of her husband John's anatomy, resulting in a pair of trials that captivated the nation in the 1990s. Now that so many years have passed, where is Lorena (pictured above at the Sundance Film Festival in 2019) now, and what has she been doing in the years since this headline-grabbing true crime case?

After her trial ended in a verdict of not guilty by reason of temporary insanity, Lorena was sent for a 45-day psychiatric evaluation. The evaluation period came and went, she was deemed not a danger to herself or others, and she was released to try to rebuild her life after being at the center of a gory, tragicomic court case that captured the attention of an entire country. In an interview with Vanity Fair, Lorena explained that she considered leaving the country and returning to her family in Venezuela but ultimately decided not to and instead finished up the citizenship process.

Venezuela - Parents - Parents - Life - Nothing

"I could go back to Venezuela and my parents, but I want my parents to come here for a better life. I have nothing, but I still have my American Dream," she explained. While the rest of her family worked toward American citizenship as well, she supported them by working as an assistant and in a nail salon. Although she received several offers to capitalize on her high profile, she refused, preferring to stay out of the spotlight — even when Playboy offered her $1 million to do a nude photo shoot.
