No body … no crime? Not in the case of a murdered cat in Los Angeles.
Scott Allen Atkinson, who killed his girlfriend’s cat and told her to “follow the blood trail to find Tweety” has been sentenced to 2 years in prison. PETA should be happy with this ruling as Atkinson will be spending more time in prison than some convicted pedophiles. Of course the fact that he told the woman’s daughter he was going to kill her mother as well did not help matters. Scott Allen Atkinson certainly picked the wrong state and city to murder an animal.
Blood was found in the girlfriend’s apartment but Tweety was never found.
Scott Allen Atkinson pleaded no contest to two felony charges of animal cruelty and threatening the woman’s life. He was sentenced Wednesday.
