More Animal Abuse Discovered In Sharpsburg

SHARPSBURG (KDKA) — Animal Friends Humane Officer Kathy Hecker went to the same Sharpsburg neighborhood where two decapitated cats were found.

This time, Hecker made a grisly discovery near railroad tracks under the 62nd Street Bridge. She found animal parts and a large rodent – perhaps a beaver or muskrat – laid on the tracks with a stake holding it in place.

“The stake was man-made, about two feet long, sharpened at both ends,” she said.

Hecker added that whatever the animal turns out to be, it was definitely run over by a train. Two dead cats were found near the same set of railroad tracks on Wednesday.  The felines were in separate plastic shopping bags and both had been beheaded.

Hecker says the original $200 reward in the cat mutilation case has grown to $2,000 thanks to donations from people who want whoever is responsible for the beheadings caught.

Hecker says she doesn’t know if the cat mutilation and Thursday’s discoveries are related.

    I would say that the suspect is a young male, between 11-18 years old and a loner. Is somewhat odd in behavior but doesn’t necessarily stand out.

    I would venture to say law enforcement needs to be looking for a young male, between 11-18 years old, odd in behavior but not necessarily standing out and in an neighborhood where animals have been reported missing/abused. He has definitely to a more convenient and quiet area to carry out his actions.

    I’m guessing it’s a kid. I’ve only ever heard of serial killers doing this during their childhood.

    Sounds erily familiar to the Jeffrey Dahmer file.

    It’s worth the effort to find this person. It has been proven that someone who goes out of their way to kill animals, especially in a sadistic fashion, will eventually no long be satisfied and move on to humans.

    please please please find who is doing this. they are sick and it’s a know fact that all the worst serial killers in our history have started on animals. Poor animals, I pray they went quickly and w/o too much pain or fear.

    It’s going to be a big talking coward…. it always is. Better hope the law finds him before the owners of the animals do.
