Woman steals friend’s dog, kills it and burns body in crime that baffles police

A woman stole her friend’s dog, killed it and then burned its body – in a crime that has left police baffled.

Pennsylvania police are still baffled and trying to work out why Kathryn Grace Grecia did it.

The woman from Hershey, Pennsylvania, USA is accused of killing the animal after investigators found its charred remains.

Officers from Hummelstown said a one-year-old miniature Pinscher/Poodle mixed breed puppy called Bambi was reported stolen from a residence back in April 2018.

Police confirmed Bambi’s owner had said she knew the person that had taken her dog.

In April, police made several attempts to find the suspect and the puppy, but none were successful.

But just three days later, a small animal carcass was found on fire at the suspect’s home in the early hours of the morning, PennLive has revealed.

The remains were then collected and tested by the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture, and a DNA test was done to determine if the animal was in fact Bambi.

On Thursday, police confirmed they had arrested Kathryn Grace Grecia on charges of aggravated cruelty to animals, tampering with evidence and theft.

Ms Grecia was later released on a $5,000 unsecured bail. She will appear in court on February 26.
