Police said they are analyzing footage from surveillance cameras near the park and school to try and determine who the perpetrator is.

Lock them up, 25 years non parole. Individuals who engage in animal cruelty have psychopathic traits, particularly in the area of callousness and complete lack of empathy. This freak is an absolute danger to society.

Some people are so weak that they need to beat up on... cats. A sad state of affairs.

Were the body parts from the same cat?

Need to catch him before he graduates to humans.

I hope whoever did this dies. Painfully.

Anybody remember Kobe mutilation killing by the teenager named Sakakibara? There are eerie similarities.

Normally the police do nothing in cases of animal cruelty. They may do something in this case because it is news.

It'll be some old codger in the neighborhood who is lashing out at the noise from school students as he tries to sleep off his One Cup Ozeki. Look for someone out at 5:00 a.m., or buying more sake from the convenie. And when they find him, lock him up for years.

Stray cats kill the native birds in my house and local area, but putting heads in schools crosses the line.

bladi - Some people are so weak that they need to beat up on... cats.

Good - What kind of a cowardly, insecure jerk would do such a thing. Pathetic loser.

He's not "weak", and he's not a "jerk" or a "loser". He's a godamn psychopath.

NCIS Reruns - Need to catch him before he graduates to humans.

Exactly.

No. Simply killing cats crosses the line, regardless of whether or not you behead them or where you put the dismembered heads.

To kill a beautiful animal just for the mindless killer and fun in killing in that person's make up is horror most horrific. Such a person is not human but diabolic and, with each killing, graduates to become a killer of humans.

This is exactly how the Kobe murders by the 14 year old Sakakibara began unfolding, as Meiyouwenti mentioned above. First dead cat parts were being found in the area and then later human body parts.

Why do you allow stray cats into your house? Killing cats crosses the line, and it's not the same, the strays are hunting for food, this sick freak is doing it for kicks.

Ask the kids that go there or to the local Jr. High who they think might be crazy enough to do such a thing. They probably have an idea of who might be capable of such a thing.

I hope they catch soon the damn garbage that killed the poor cat..

There is a special place in Hell for people who mutilate and kill dogs, cats and any of God's creatures!!

That some darkness right there. Some lunatic out there living in hell, before he even goes there!

Looks like we’ve got a budding serial killer on our hands.

This is textbook gateway behavior.

Let’s hope the cops find him before he gets up the nerve to graduate to humans.

I hope they catch the perp before he graduates to killing children. This sort of thing has a troublesome history.

At the very least, it's inducing panic and scaring children fershure. First it's a cat. Then what? I hope the cops find and put this psycho loony away and SOON!
