article imageSuspected serial cat killer arrested in Sweden

Gothenburg - A 16-year-old boy has been arrested in Sweden on suspicion of serial murder. A series of nine gruesome cat murders dating back to November 2011 has seen the pets tortured, slit open and left hanging from trees.
The case of the grizzly cat murders had left police in Gothenburg baffled. The Local reported that the torturous nature of the crimes led psychiatrist Ulf Åsgård to warn that the cat torturer could be dangerous to people as well as to animals.
The latest killing was reported on May 1 when the mutilated corpse of a cat was found on the doorstep of its owner. Police spokesman Björ Blixter said "The perpetrator apparently knows where the cat owner lives as we're presuming that the cat was killed in another location but was left outside the owner's home."
Expressen reported that the police operation to catch the cat killer was stepped up, resulting in the arrest of the 16-year-old alleged culprit on May 2. Blixter attributed the success of the police operation to "classic reconnaissance."
