Some good news...

...they've arrested the dog beheading freak from out west.  This was the guy who sent it in a box to the dog's 17 year old owner. 

Police said the man they arrested lived a few blocks from Crystal and may have had a romantic interest in the girl.

Lock him up!

Locally, police have a "person of interest" in the dog-boiled-alive case from Butler County, but they are looking for more evidence.  There's a $10,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction.  I thought this was sweet:

Vickey Steier, Butler's chief animal control officer, said one woman called, apologizing that $15 was all she could afford to offer for the reward money. But Steier told the woman that every donation helps.

We need to find this guy and lock him up too.


I am assuming that this might put a damper on any romantic advances in the future. But on a serious note, I hope both of these cases result in meaningful convictions for two reasons. First, public examples need to be made that these types of crimes will be taken seriously, which hopefully will deter some future offenders. Second, there is a good chance that these offenders, if unchecked, will escalate their behavior towards other animals and possibly people.

Well I would think it would hamper the romance. It all definitely has a Jodie Foster/John Hinkley Jr./Hello Claireece feel to it.

I suspected it was some "romance"-linked creepy stalker, just because the picture showed her to be a pretty girl, and her dog was sweet and pretty too. I hope they lock the guy up for a good long time; he's got all the makings of a kidnapper/sex criminal.
