Miami police arrested a teenager today in connection with a high-profile series of cat-killings, the Miami Herald reports. Accused of mutilating and killing more than a dozen cats, Tyler Hayes Weinman, 18, was charged with animal cruelty, improperly disposing of an animal body, and burglary. Residents alerted police to Weinman, whose divorced parents live in the two areas where cat murders occurred.
"Horrific and unspeakable slaughterings of many of their beloved feline pets" have put residents "on edge," the state attorney said. “I sincerely hope that with his arrest, the residents will feel relieved and their cats will be safe once again." Weinman had even joined a 1,000-member Facebook group called "Catch the Cat Killer!"
