Facebook Brag Leads To Arrest In Dog Burning Case


ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – St. Louis’ Mayor Slay Animal Cruelty Task Force has made a felony arrest in an animal cruelty case.

A dog Stray Rescue later named “Brownie” was found July 10, in the 4300 block of Cote Brilliante. He was chained and severely burned after being lit on fire.

Brownie was taken to Stray Rescue of St. Louis for emergency medial treatment, but later died from organ failure.

According to a Stray Rescue news release, members of the task force found the accused abuser, Adrienne Martin, when she posted about the incident on her Facebook page.

Martin, who has been charged with felony animal abuse, reportedly said on Facebook, “I’m on killa mode… kill dogs… today. I mean what I say and I say what I mean… all dogs don’t go to heaven.”

“This is one of the most disturbing abuse cases I have ever dealt with,” said Stray Rescue Founder Randy Grim. “It has stricken our community to the core of our hearts, but I am inspired by how swiftly we have been able to respond to these awful cases. Brownie deserves justice.”

St. Louis’ Mayor Slay Animal Cruelty Task Force started in October 2012 and has investigated more than 100 cases, made more than 25 arrests and issued more than 300 animal control citations.

“This demonstrates again that we are serious about this,” said Mayor Slay. “Our Animal Cruelty Task Force will continue to catch and arrest criminals who torture or hurt animals.”
