In trying to find the name of a one-eyed actor that I remembered seeing in something, I came across a list of “Famous Blind People” that contained this entry:
Brandon Jardine, was stabbed in the eyes by his parents with red hot pokers in 1991
This piqued my morbid curiosity, so I tried to find out more. The weird thing is that every reference to this person uses the exact words cited above. Nothing else. No explanation of why he is famous (although being gruesomely blinded by one’s parents might be reason enough!).
I’m wondering if anyone has heard of this person or the incident, or has better Google-fu than I and can turn up additional information.
