Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

A security guard has been jailed for more than five years for stabbing 16 cats in a series of night-time attacks.

Steven Bouquet killed nine cats around Brighton between October 2018 and June 2019. Seven more were injured.

The 54-year-old had denied 16 counts of criminal damage and possession of a knife but was found guilty in June.

Bouquet, who has been dubbed the "Brighton cat killer", was sentenced to five years and three months in prison at Hove Crown Court.

Have you ever read the book 'Mindhunter' ?

It's written by the guys that started the FBI Serial Crime Unit as featured in 'The Silence Of The Lambs', a very interesting & sometimes shocking book. Apparently a regular character flaw of serial killers is a propensity of cruelty to animals as children. Seems they got to this specimen in time (not for the poor cats though) perhaps the 5 year sentence should be reviewed.

But this guy is 54.  Should have moved up to humans by now shouldn't he?  Late bloomer?

late bloomer it is lol, he'll only be 59 when he gets out, maybe prison is where he'll step up. he was a guard, my guess he'll join a gang, and will be an   enforcer.
