An 18-year-old girl is accused of an utterly gruesome and senseless crime which claimed the life of her own grandmother's dog. Kyoko Smith not only killed her grandma's Shih Tzu named Lucy, but she dismembered the dog's body!
Investigators with the Memphis, Tennessee, Police Department found Lucy's decapitated head in a dresser drawer; the teen also allegedly removed the dog's heart and placed it in a freezer. She then sent photos of the dismembered dog to a family member.
Though Smith admitted to the police that she was responsible for Lucy's death, she has not disclosed what motivated her to commit the horrendous crime. The teen is facing a felony charge for intentionally killing an animal.
This is an unusual and shocking crime. We want to send your signatures to the prosecutor to get this deranged teen out of society and away from animals!
Smith was charged with killing an animal, which is a class E felony. She was released from jail on a $5,000 bond.
One of the conditions of her bond was counseling.Before her next court appearance, Smith will have to prove to judge William Anderson that she is trying to get help.
