Punish Sick Teen Who Duct-Taped And Fatally Stabbed Innocent Cat

Published: October 21, 2021 at 08:27 PM Author: Penny Eims

Johnson City, Tennessee. On April 18, 2021, a horrific discovery was made in the parking lot of the Appalachian Funeral Home in Johnson City, Tennessee. A fluffy orange and white cat had been brutally attacked and tortured – the body left behind like unwanted trash.

The cat’s paws were bound in duct-tape, there was obvious head trauma, and a bloodied screwdriver was found nearby.

The sick crime shocked people near and far, and Animal Victory had created a petition and offered a $500 reward with the hope that it would help the authorities find the person behind the criminal act.

Finally, an arrest has been made!! The authorities have identified 19-year-old Deamion R. Davis as the person responsible for torturing and killing the cat found in April.  On October 19, Davis was arrested for aggravated animal cruelty and booked into the Washington County Detention Center on $10,000 bond.

Forensic evidence evaluated by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation’s laboratory led to Davis’ arrest.

More is now known about the victimized cat – according to an affidavit from Washington County General Sessions Court, the cat’s owner had left the feline with a friend while she went out of town. The cat, who was allowed to go outside, vanished on April 16. It has been reported that a woman who  “did not agree with how [the friend] was taking care of the cat,” had picked up the orange cat while it was outside and proceeded to give it away on Craigslist. The outcome of that woman’s actions is horrific.

The monster behind this heinous crime has been identified and charged; now we must collect as many signatures as possible to convince court officials that ONLY the maximum punishment for his charge will do. A slap on the wrist plea deal would only serve to diminish the seriousness of this criminal act. Please add your name today to put Deamion R. Davis away for as long as possible. We will also be asking the court to forbid Davis from owning, or living with, any animal in the future.
