HOLLYWOOD, Fla. - Authorities in Florida say they've made an arrest in the case of a young pit bull that eventually died after being beaten, stabbed and stuffed into a suitcase.
The Sun Sentinel reports that 31-year-old Brendan Evans was arrested Wednesday and charged with aggravated animal cruelty.
Hollywood police say the dog, named Ollie, died at an animal hospital last month, two days after officers traced his cries to a blue suitcase that was left behind an abandoned building. Inside, they found the bloody dog with deep cuts on his head and body. Police say DNA taken from the suitcase was linked to Evans.
Jail records didn't list an attorney for Evans.
