Police: Florida Teen Who Killed Cats Fits Sociopath Profile

Police say a Florida teenager who is accused of killing more than a dozen cats in two south Miami neighborhoods fits the profile of a sociopath.

In the 10-page arrest affidavit for Tyler Hayes Weinman, police said they tracked the 18-year-old's car electronically and traced his cell phone before charging him with the crimes. The affidavit was unsealed Monday, the same day Weinman was formally arraigned in Miami-Dade County Circuit Court.

Weinman's attorney had already filed a written plea of not guilty to charges of 19 counts each of animal cruelty and improperly disposing of an animal body. Weinman also faces four counts of burglary related to the cat deaths.

He did not attend Monday's hearing.

    Remember Jeffrey Dahmer? He started out killing animals and boiling the meat off of the bones before he progressed to human prey.

    How could anyone look at the picture of that kitten you have at the top of this story, and not feel like anyone that would intentionally hurt it needs to be beat severely.

    This little punk is the kind that if found guilty would make you want to take him out, tie him to a tree, cut a good green piece of hickory, and just beat him until your arm gives out.
