SUSPECT: Brittany Garza
CHARGES: Animal cruelty
DATE OF ARREST: May 15
THE DETAILS: Several months ago, the nation was shocked when news reports surfaced about authorities discovering an abandoned tiger in a vacant home. A stoner’s 911 call eventually led police to the shocking scene. Now, the person responsible has finally been identified and arrested. The culprit, Garza, claims she has cared for the tiger since it was a cub. When the cub got too big, she arranged for an animal sanctuary to pick him up. She alleges that the tiger was caged at the vacant home while awaiting transport.
SUSPECT: Andy McCauley
DATE OF ARREST: May 16
THE DETAILS: Authorities in West Virginia found the partially decomposed body of 15-year-old Riley Crossman. The victim had been discarded near a rural mountain road. According to the police, Andy McCauley, the boyfriend of Riley’s mother, has been a suspect “since day one.” Riley’s mother reported her daughter as missing. Her mother reported that she didn’t see her daughter the morning of her disappearance, but that didn’t spark concern. Usually, her daughter left for school at around 7:15 A.M., so she assumed Riley had already left for school. It wasn’t until the school called later reporting that Riley had been absent that her mother became suspicious. That’s when she called 911. The investigation remains ongoing, and authorities have not yet released any additional details.
