Good police work
I previously blogged about the story of a Philadelphia man whose dog was kidnapped and apparently then tortured to death, all as part of an extortion attempt. The extortion call to the man came from a cell phone, and one of the side issues in the case was that it Verizon an inordinate amount of time to turn the phone records over to the police. Well, they finally did so, and an arrest has now been made: http://www.philly.com/dailynews/local/20080104_Stu_Bykofsky___Teen_charged___facing_trial_in_cruel_dog-extortion_case.html. This is great news for animal lovers, all of whom were horrified by this story.
