Teen Thug Arrested in Sick & Bizarre Missing Dog Case (What Happened to Edna?) … “I want to kill your dog anyway.”
What makes our teens do the things they do? What would make a teenager abduct a harmless pet, attempt to ransom and extort its owner and then seemingly want and find pleasure in killing a helpless animal? Then harass the pet owner and find pleasure in letting him know that they will kill his dog?
That is what occurred to 51 year old Bill Whiting when his beloved beagle-mix dog, Edna, was taken. Edna went missing on Halloween. What happened next was beyond twisted and bizarre. Luckily, the 15 year old thug, pathetic excuse for a human being has been arrested and charged with harassment, terroristic threats, theft by extortion and other counts.
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A telephone call at midnight normally would have awoken Bill Whiting, but he hadn’t been sleeping much since his dog disappeared. He picked up the phone and couldn’t believe what he heard.
Children were demanding $600 or else they would kill Edna, his beloved beagle mix. Whiting listened in horror to what sounded like the jingle of Edna’s collar, and an animal yelping in pain. He agreed to pay the ransom.
“You don’t understand, mister,” a boy replied. “I want to kill your dog anyway.”
What happened to Edna remains a mystery, but Philadelphia police have charged a 15-year-old with harassment, terroristic threats, theft by extortion and other counts for allegedly calling Whiting. Police have yet to find the dog.
