PETITION TARGET: Johnson City Police Department

Davis in alleged connection with cruelty to a cat found bound with duct tape and stabbed with a screwdriver in April, after which the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation Lab traced forensic evidence back to Davis.

Stabbed multiple times, an orange and white tabby cat’s bound and mutilated body was found beside a bloody screwdriver on the blood-spattered pavement of a funeral home parking lot in Johnson City, Tenn., WATE reported.
The deceased cat’s remains show a terrifying and agonizing death: her back paws wrapped in duct tape, her head bashed in, and other signs of torture.
Someone reported a green 4-door truck in the parking lot around the time a passerby found the feline’s slain body, according to a Johnson City Animal Control spokesperson. But authorities have not yet identified any suspects and are asking the public for any information about this shocking case.
The person who mercilessly taped this innocent cat and stabbed her to death must be caught before they harm anyone else. Sign this petition urging the Johnson City Police Department to use all available resources to identify and arrest the person responsible for this horrifying act of cruelty.
This is an ongoing case. Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 423-434-6158 or text the code 423 JCPD, along with the tip, to 847411 (TIP411).
