I contacted an Examiner journalist who specializes in animal cruelty cases. I sent her this. almost five years ago now, my cat Amy was beaten in the street. She succumbed to her injuries the next day.
Some witnesses saw the beating and provided a good description of the killer. I thought it would only be a short time before he was brought to justice.
However, there was almost zero support from the community. Not one lead came from the people who would have known who he was.
With only a few weeks until the statute of limitations expires, I am embarking on one last ditch effort to get the community to give up this monster.
I have web sites at
(the killer was from or had close connections to the South St Petersburg neighborhood).
Later today, I will contact journalists at the Tampa Tribune and the Tampa Bay Times.
