According to recent court documents, a woman saw Parker take the cat behind his house, and he emerged a short time later holding a machete with fresh blood and cat hair on it. The incident was reported to authorities and a search warrant was served shortly thereafter. A machete, a railroad tie used to hold the cat down and the cat’s head were removed from the premises. Parker told officers that the cat was “a stray that got into my stuff;” however, it was further revealed that the cat belonged to a neighbor. Parker later admitted to killing the animal in his shed.
“That animal died a very, very painful, slow death,” said Erika Quinn of Thurston County Animal Services.
