The cat killer struck again yesterday. Not once, not twice, but five times.
According to the Miami Herald
, two cats were found at 6 a.m. Wednesday in an 82-year-old woman's yard in Palmetto Bay. They didn't belong to her. Luckily the woman's cat, Kitty, was inside that night.
Another cat was discovered in a police officer's yard, and two were found elsewhere in the area.
That brings the total, since mid-May, to more than 20 cats found dead at the suspected hands of a criminal. However, some area residents say the cat killings began long before the police and media jumped on the story.
Cops now say at least two of the victims were found "posed." The reward for tips leading to the capture of the killer has grown to $12,500.
