From my friend Sia Barbi: SOS….#Spokane serial cat killer case>>I don’t believe in petitions, lobbyists and politicians say they hurt bills– if we had the same people that shared and signed petition write this email and call elected officials, this would move forward!
>>>>I need everyone, to write these elected officials SCRAPS, DA, and KHQ (wonderful) and tell them it is not safe that Spokane has deliberately allowed a dangerous serial cat killer loose in the community without warnings. Below is timeline of Spokane serial cat killing case, and how SCRAPS covered it up and sabotaged it deliberately, while he is still killing daily!

note 3/13/2017 9 pm pst– ATTN EVERYONE, SCRAPS IS SENDING A FORM LETTER TO EVERYONE THAT WRITES THEM, WITH FALSE FACTS INCLUDED. THE WITNESSES ARE TIED TO CAT KILLINGS, SCRAPS NEVER DID INVESTIGATION, THEY MADE GUARDIANS OF RESCUE, WHO I ENLISTED, DO ALL THE FOOTWORK, WHILE THEY PRETENDED TO INVESTIGATE FOR MEDIA AND NEVER ALLOWED Guardians of Rescue EVIDENCE TO BE USED. AND THE CASE THEY BRAG ABOUT FOR FELONY ANIMAL ABUSE, THEY DIDN’T DO IT, THE AUTHORITIES DID, THEY TAGGED ALONG. FOR THIS CASE THEY DID NOT ALLOW POLICE TO BE INVOLVED WHICH THEY SHOULD HAVE INSTEAD OF APPOINTING A NOVICE THAT DESTROYED EVIDENCE. DO NOT ALLOW SCRAPS TO LIE LIKE THAT. And have them listen to this to prove witnesses are directly tied to alleged serial cat killer, http://latalkradio.com/sites/default/files/audio/Oceans-022217.mp3

Dear Mayor Condon and DA Larry Haskill,
Spokane residents, concerned animal lovers worldwide, and I have relentlessly tried to contact you and have yet to receive any response. Therefore, we have been advised to contact elected officials (included in cc). We believe you are allowing SCRAPS to deliberately sabotage and cover up this extreme animal abuse case, that experts have warned, can easily escalate to violent crimes against your citizens. Spokane city watch and neighborhood groups reached out to me because they believe you aren’t doing your job protecting the community and covering up the truth, which is concerning to all, especially because there are a lot of unsolved murder cases in your area. Spokane is rated 2nd highest crime reported in the nation. (https://inlandnw.wordpress.com/…/spokane-ranks-high-on-ano…/). Everyone finds it curious, how no one could contact the DA in this, or even find this case, and had everything filter through SCRAPS, who admitted to blundering this case.
Here is my detailed timeline of the Spokane Serial Cat Killer case and how SCRAPS sabotaged this case and tried to cover it up:
Witness Kurtis Jones Tolliver met alleged cat killer.
Kurtis’s kitten, Lark, was stolen (kidnapped) by alleged cat killer, later that day.
Witness Danielle Shurbutt rescued Timmy from alleged cat killer, a kitten so severely injured by alleged cat killer squeezing him almost to death
Witness Jeff Jennings bravely rescued Lark, the kitten owned by witness Kurtis Jones Tolliver, back from alleged cat killer.
Wesley ODell, a Spokane resident, found the first tortured, dead kitten, strangled and wrapped in USB cords and called police, who referred him to SCRAPS (Spokane County Regional Animal Protection).
SCRAPS told Wesley that the little kitten that was brutally tortured to death, “was not a high priority“, and made connotation it “was only a cat”.
Wesley ODell, was desperate for help, since police and animal protection, (SCRAPS), turned him away, so he sought media to help catch kitten killer.
Local Spokane news (KHQ and KXLY) covered Wesley ODell’s story of finding the first tiny kitten, tied, tapped, strangled and brutally tortured to death. http://www.khq.com/…/couple-finds-tortured-cat-in-north-spo… This media pressure inspired SCRAPS to suddenly appear concerned, and told the media and Wesley they would “investigate”. However, SCRAPS never made any calls, they never made attempts, searched for evidence, they only made Wesley a suspect.
Furthermore, SCRAPS never called or interviewed Wesley, they never asked to inspect the tortured kitten, they never posted any investigation, updates or anything about the kitten killing, when they promised Wesley and the rest of us they would. They didn’t even post warnings to local pet owners. Guardians, the witnesses and Wesley all complained that SCRAPS admitted to them that they accidentally appointed a novice investigator that destroyed all crucial evidence from day one.
Wesley ODell, frustrated with not getting any help or concern, voluntarily brought the dead little kitten to SCRAPS to see if they would investigate. They did not.
SCRAPS refused to call in police, like they have with previous animal abuse cases, like the Wallabies, http://www.myfoxspokane.com/scraps-and-spokane-police-inve…/.
Wesley ODell sought the help of the Barbi Twins who enlisted Guardians of Rescue, who:
put up a huge REWARD,
hired people to pass out posters and flyers,
hired a private investigator to collect evidence to present to the prosecutor.
Jasmine Young, the first witness to step forward, went to SCRAPS to give information about the alleged cat killer. SCRAPS handed her a form, made her feel like a suspect, and told her to go home and fill it out. She called Guardians of Rescue to give her information instead. She recognized witness Jessica Davis’s sweatshirt on tv local news with reward.
Mr Linder, another Spokane resident, found another tortured kitten, tied with USB cord. Again, SCRAPS did nothing, so Mr. Linder turned to the media for help, once again. Witness Jessica Davis identified her sweatshirt on the news story about the kitten victim wrapped in wire. Jessica proved it was her sweatshirt that was wrapped around kitten. Jessica identified other crucial evidence, like her phone cords, as well as identifying the alleged cat killer. She was the closet to the alleged cat killer, said she sees him regularly.
Guardians of Rescue Announced: this was a SERIAL CAT KILLER!
The cat killer’s abusive technique was to strangle with wire or USB cords and tie kittens up, and/or squeeze them to death after torturing them for days, breaking bones and jaw, according to witnesses and dead kittens.
Witness Kurtis Jones Tolliver had his kitten, Lark, stollen from alleged cat killer, and rescued by friend Danielle Shurbutt and Jeff Jennings , with a badly injured kitten victim, Timmy, who got a hernia from being squeezed almost to death in front of witnesses.
After hours and hours of a successful investigation, Guardians of Rescue found crucial witnesses to identify both the sweatshirt that was wrapped around the 2nd kitten, and the witnesses who identified the suspect. Guardians of Rescue also obtained audio from witness Jessica Davis, who supplied an email statement and audio of alleged suspect, talking about how he obtains his kitten victims. (Craigslist, Facebook, trapping)
5 more cats were found; 2 duct taped, one having USB wires, and 2 cats were rescued from cat killers car that he lived in, one was seriously injured from being squeezed causing internal damage, as described in this GoFund page by witness Kurtis Jone Tolliver:https://www.gofundme.com/a-new-life-for-timmy, who emailed a statement.
Any surviving kittens were killed by SCRAPS and never investigated or even documented.
Oct 31 Witness Jasmine Young and her friend Mandy rescued 2 kittens from alleged cat killer before he tried killing them, and suspect chased them down yelling to Jessica that he was going to “f*cking kill them”
Nov. 14th, alleged cat killer’s car was impounded with crucial evidence, including fecal material, dead cat remains or blood, cat traps, USB cords. SCRAPS never investigated the car or interviewed the suspect. They never interviewed the witnesses, except for witness Jasmine Young, who volunteered an audio statement.
Nov 21 Two kittens were found duct taped that were serial cat killer’s victims. http://www.khq.com/…/scraps-investigating-four-tied-cat-cas….
Nov 17 The black calico cat victim was found by minor
Guardians of Rescue finally had all the evidence to present to prosector but were forced to go through SCRAPS, so they handed over all their evidence and witness’s information to SCRAPS. SCRAPS continued to stall investigation, not interviewing witnesses or accumulating any evidence of their own.
Wesley gave a statement to SCRAPS and asked them to post updates about the case on their website, and they agreed. They did not, so Wesley wanted to warn the community with the news http://www.khq.com/…/witness-wants-spokane-cat-killer-caught.
SCRAPS made false accusations to Wesley and others, about Guardians, claiming they would not allow SCRAPS to use their evidence, so DA threw out the case because of lack of evidence. http://www.krem.com/…/prosecutors-decline-charges…/409278853.
SCRAPS unprofessionally gossiped about Wesley ODell’s personal life to investigators. They discredited, discriminated and intimidated unfairly against the witnesses; they made false claims that Guardians would not get back to them or hand over their crucial evidence, and dismissed any good information given to them about the alleged cat killer. Witness Jessica Davis said that SCRAPS intimidated her by saying if she didn’t sign a statement, (which she eventually emailed one in), they would hold her responsible as alleged cat killer’s accomplice. This proves that SCRAPS is fully aware of how dangerous this alleged cat killer is, and warned absolutely no one in this community.
Feb 22, LA Talk radio show, State of the Oceans, http://latalkradio.com/…/defa…/files/audio/Oceans-022217.mp3, invited the witnesses to discuss their experience with the alleged cat killer, whom they identified. The witnesses cooperated to help prosecute this alleged serial cat killer, and warned that he is getting worse, likely to escalate to violent crimes on humans. http://worldanimalnews.com/breaking-brave-witnesses-identi…/ . Two witnesses provided statements, and one agreed to an audio statement about the serial cat killer and how dangerous he is.
Feb 27, SCRAPS confirmed “Tyler Engstrom” as person of interest and possible suspect . http://www.khq.com/…/scraps-confirms-person-of-interest-in-…
In Coeur D’Alene, approximately 20 miles from the Spokane cat killings, they investigate crimes correctly. When ONE cat was abused, the police were called in for investigation, the community was warned to keep their pets safe, details were supplied to the media for thorough coverage, and locals put up a reward. http://www.khq.com/…/10000-reward-being-offered-in-coeur-da… . Spokane officials, however, absolutely don’t care about serious animal abuse or a dangerous, sick person, loose in the Spokane community.
Furthermore, the witnesses admitted that the cat abuse case in Coeur D’Alene is the same torture style (strangling) as the Spokane serial cat killer. The alleged cat killer goes to Coeur D’Alene with the witnesses often to gamble, accompanied with a new, revolving kitten victim to torture, and later dumps it. These crimes are connected, but only Coeur D’Alene seems to care, while Spokane gave the message– it’s ok to torture and kill animals.
LA Talk Radio, State of the Oceans invites special guest Jane Velez Mitchell on with with witnesses Kurtis Jones Tolliver, Rusty Melcher, Danielle Shurbutt to discuss the nation’s outrage that SCRAPS and DA failed to prosecute Spokane serial cat killer (or have police involved, post warnings or updates, never interviewed witnesses or investigated like they claimed). http://latalkradio.com/…/defa…/files/audio/Oceans-030117.mp3
Guardians of Rescue, after spending time and resources on this case, is offering a $5000 REWARD; Katie Cleary, of World Animal News and Peace for Animals, is offering a $10,000 REWARD; and we, the Barbi Twins, are also offering a $5000 REWARD, totaling $20,000 for the information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible for the serial cat killings in Spokane.
What are YOU doing for the Spokane community and your citizens?
We are anxiously awaiting a response from Mayor Condon,
Sia and Shane Barbi,
