Possible Animal Serial Killer Stalks Florida Suburb

Sometimes murderous psychopaths practice on animals first. That’s why stories of serial pet murder are so troubling. Like the one developing in a neighborhood in St. Petersburg, Florida. Someone is poisoning bags of dog food and leaving them for local pets. The attacks began two years ago—WCPO reports the first victim was a terrier-pitbull mx named Annabelle. Someone sent a note to Annabelle’s owner that warned, “Shut your dog up or we will.” Annabelle was seriously ill a few days later, the victim of dog food contaminated with Tylenol. She recovered, only to die from a second poisoning in March 2018. Not far from the home of Annabelle’s owner Rob McCahan someone poisoned another dog. Then a cat was hanged. WCPO referenced the FBI’s conclusions about violence against animals, which is why law enforcement pays such close attention: “Animal cruelty [is] an early indicator of violent crime.”
