BELLEVILLE, Ill. (KMOX) –  Folks in Belleville are wondering who, or what, killed more than a half-dozen kittens discovered near a city park late Tuesday.

A woman walking her dog made a grisly discovery after her pet picked up a scent.

She found the bodies of dead kittens, seven in all,- near some railroad tracks.

Their bodies were lined up all in a row.

According to police spokesman Sgt. Don Sax the kittens may have been killed “by an animal”, and were later discovered and lined up by someone, perhaps a child.

He says it appears the kittens died as a result of trauma, but an exact cause of death and whether a crime was committed have yet to be determined.
