Authorities have arrested 29-year-old GRAHAM WILLIAM REID (pictured below) and charged him with four counts of cruelty to non-livestock animals.
REID, a former geometry teacher at Fort Bend Independent School District’s Ridge Point High School, was arrested on April 28, on accusations of killing his cats reportedly named Broccoli, Cabbage, Carrot, and Parsnip.
As reported by ABC13, according to court documents, REID admitted to killing the kittens as a means to feel powerful because he was bullied and oppressed as a child.
Investigators said the kittens, ranging in age from about 8 weeks to 1 year old, were violently killed from October 1, 2020 through March 3, 2021.
According to Click2Houston, court documents say that felines suffered injuries such as broken teeth, bloodied toes and cut tails, as well as respiratory issues and broken bones.
Click2Houston further reports that official documents say REID “admitted to hitting one of the cats with a metal workout bar on two or three occasions.”
After feeling remorseful, he took the furbaby to a vet where he/she was cremated.
REID then got another cat, according to documents, and kicked and tortured his new voiceless and defenseless victim.
When he finally took the precious life out of the small cat, he dumped him/her in the dumpster.
A third cat was slammed with a scratching post and the poor soul died after he/she started vomiting.
The filthy murderer then got a 4-month-old kitten who was hit by REID with the litter scoop for going potty outside the litter box.
According to documents, REID killed the furbaby with a hammer.
ABC13 published the statement issued by the school which reads: “We have been made aware of a disturbing animal cruelty allegation against a teacher who is no longer employed with the District. We are unable to comment further as the matter involves an ongoing criminal investigation. Please know the safety and security of our students is our top priority and we are taking steps to safeguard the emotional well-being of our students by making well-trained counselors available to the teacher's former students.”
Online court records show the murderer is free on a $25,000 bond and is expected to be in court on June 14, 2021.
