- Missouri, USA -
The Holts Summit Police Department arrested 23-years-old ELIJAH PAUL JUAREZ (pictured).
According to court documents, on the afternoon of Monday, February 5, 2024, an employee of a property management company for JUAREZ’s home in the 100 block of Rylee Circle in Holts Summit, reported to police that he heard JUAREZ trashing the home. When the employee went to check what was going on, he found a bloody hatchet, parts of a dismembered dog, and a large amount of blood in the garage.
Police then obtained and executed a search warrant at JUAREZ’s home. The search led to the discovery of more dog parts, a trash can and freezer containing more dog body parts, a large pool of blood that was starting to dry, two pairs of bloody scissors, and bloody clothes and shoes.
A veterinarian stated that the dog had been dismembered, shot, and gutted.
Officials additionally found forged documents (such as passports and identification cards), guns, an AR-15 rifle, and a whiteboard that had plans and financial information about selling drugs.
The following day, on February 6, 2024, investigators interviewed a woman who had been in a relationship with JUAREZ.
The woman told investigators that on January 22, 2024, JUAREZ restrained her to a metal rack, he sexually assaulted her, and recorded himself during the act. According to the woman, JUAREZ also threatened her to burn her hands to prevent her from escaping.
The woman went on to state that on February 1, 2024, while she and JUAREZ were arguing, he beat her and forbade her to leave. The woman also said that she was raped by JUAREZ on February 3, 2024, and that the following day she went back to his home to get her stuff.
When she arrived at JUAREZ’s home, he was standing outside holding a bible while wearing a black and red mask. The woman said she did not feel safe and left. According to the woman, JUAREZ had been sending her messages on her phone and on social media saying he wanted to “sacrifice” her, but since she was not there at his home, he would sacrifice something else instead. JUAREZ then sent the woman pictures of his dismembered dog.
On the afternoon of Monday, February 12, 2024, JUAREZ was booked into the Callaway County Jail. The following day, prosecutors filed felony charges against him, including:
Two counts of First-Degree Sodomy
Four counts of Third-Degree Domestic Assault
First-Degree Property Damage
Tampering with a Victim (as he called the woman in an attempt to persuade her to not cooperate with police).
I have emailed the Holts Summit Police Department and requested additional information about the Voiceless Victim. If I get a response, I will post an update. Meanwhile, I took the liberty of naming the furvictim Ocean for the tribute image. Should his/her given name be made public, I will rectify it accordingly.
