Man Who Repeatedly Stabbed Dog, And Stuffed Him In A Suitcase, Sentenced To 10 Years In Prison

Brendan Evans, the Florida man who brutally attacked a pit bull before stuffing him inside of a suitcase four years ago, was sentenced to 10 years in prison earlier this month. The now 35-year-old man pleaded guilty to felony animal cruelty charges and admitted to the gruesome crime that ultimately claimed the life of the dog who was dubbed Ollie.

Ollie suffered approximately 50 stab wounds in the attack and he was still alive when Evans stuffed him inside of a blue suitcase that was discovered not far from the man’s residence.

According to a Hollywood Police Department report, there was evidence of “gruesome cruelty” found inside of Evans’ apartment, and they discovered that he had a history of “targeting animals.”

Investigators were able to identify Evans as the suspect after linking his DNA to the bloodied suitcase that Ollie was found in.

Though Ollie survived the initial attack, he succumbed to his injuries two days after being found. Ollie received care at the VCA Hollywood Animal Hospital, where the veterinarian noted that his was one of the worst cases of animal cruelty she had ever seen.

Evans is sentenced to 10 years in state prison for two charges. One for stabbing Ollie, and the other, for stuffing him into the suitcases; the sentences are to be served concurrently.
