A South Florida teenager accused of killing and mutilating 19 cats excitedly described to police how he dissected cats in class, and where to find cats for experimentation, according to police. Tyler Weinman laughed when police told him they had information he was the cat killer, an arrest document said.

When Miami-Dade police told Tyler Hayes Weinman someone was killing cats in the neighborhood, the 18-year-old reacted by laughing, according to a newly released arrest affidavit made public Monday.
Most of the cats were found in their owners' yards. "One appeared to be posed with a slit down the middle of its stomach," the affidavit states.
On Monday, Weinman pleaded not guilty to more than 40 criminal counts, including multiple charges of felony animal cruelty and burglary. He is out of jail on $249,500 bond and under house arrest wearing an electronic monitor, but is being held for 48 hours for a psychiatric evaluation.

He does not have a heart.I hope he does not get a slap on the wrist.One of the dead cats was found by a 9 year old girl.It was her cat since she was 3.This guy is a real sicko little punk.
This worthless bug is going to be a serial killer-—
I read somewhere that serial killer Ted Bundy took psychology classes in order to better understand his prey.
Not all who study the healing arts are interested in healing.
No remorse, just amusement and the thrill of his technique.
Good thing he was stupid and got caught before he graduated to more exciting prey.
...the Honda Civic driven by Weinman... was tracked to the latest feline victim...
Just goes to show you the stupidity of the police. Here they're holding this innocent young man, while the real killer is out there loose somewhere.
This looks like a job for OJ.
“The teenager’s divorced parents lived in separate neighborhoods, according to police. His mother resides in Cutler Bay. His father lives in Palmetto Bay, further north of Miami. According to the arrest affidavit, shortly after the teenager talked to police about dissecting cats, he went to live with his father who restricted his son’s access to a car. The killings shifted north as eight dead cats turned up in Palmetto Bay, police said.”
Yep. So, I laugh at the lawyer whining about the “lynch mob” harassing his “innocent client”.
I’m very glad they finally caught this psycho. What a great example of parenting, eh? I know a LOT of people who would like to spend a little time with him...and then leave what’s left of him propped up in front of his “I don’t want to know what he’s doing” father’s house. Just the way he did his kitty victims. I can’t even begin to imagine the heartbreak of the owners of those murdered and mutilated cats.
Barring that, let him rot for the 158 years he could get in jail and not pass on his defective genes. Piece of absolutely worthless ____.
