The string of cat killings that rocked Palmetto and Cutler Bay last summer may have ended when police arrested 18-year-old suspect Tyler Weinman, but investigators haven't been able to link Weinman's DNA to the case.
Eleven of the 19 cats' bodies were tested for human DNA and none was found. They had hoped that DNA would be found on the cats' mouth or paws after scratching or biting their attacker. State investigators are still awaiting results from cutting instruments, clothing and other items found in Weinman's room and car.
Though police say that a tracker placed on Weinman's car places him in the area of one of the later killings, the case is still lacking in concrete evidence.
