Reward for Cat Killer Tips Upped

The cat killer of Cutler Bay is still terrorizing South Dade neighborhoods, and the brutal killings only seem to get worse. 

Authorities believe the criminal strikes the cats with an unknown object before mutilating them with a knife. He then leaves the bodies for the owners or neighbors to find. He most recently struck on May 31st, and his kill count has reached 26.

They also believe that the killer is an adult who drives a car, instead of a teenager on foot. 

The Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers are now offering $7,500 to anyone who has information leading to the arrest of the killer. Crim Stoppers can be contacted  at (305) 471-TIPS or through their website
